The Bank at the Bellagio: A Nightclub Inspired by 'Ocean's 13'?
Some more Bellagio news for you...
In the movie Ocean's 13, the Bellagio is prominently featured as its owner (in the film) Terry Benedict is the group's onetime rival but offers to help out in their planned heist of the newest luxury hotel on the strip--The Bank.
The Bank is actually a rip-off of The Wynn and its owner Willy Bank is much like Steve Wynn himself, striving for the most luxurious and opulent hotel/casino around.
There was even talk that the movie's premiere would be held at The Bellagio, so the Bellagio and Ocean's 13 are tight.
Further proof of that, we looked at their website just yesterday and saw this: The Bank coming in December 2007. Apparently, the Bellagio is getting a new nightclub that is centered around the finer things in life. From the website:
Like its namesake, The Bank will be a sanctuary for all things precious-the décor and design are no exception. Attention to detail abounds where combinations of rich textures and modern elements will create a harmoniously paired aesthetic. A resplendent palette of colors will complement the club's intricate details creating a luxurious yet contemporary vibe....Simply stated, The Bank is elegant, exclusive and one of Las Vegas' most desirable places to party.
The group behind this is the Light Group who was responsible for the old nightclub Light inside Bellagio. So we are guessing it was out with Light and in with "The Bank." Is it just us or does this remind you of Wall Street in the early 80s?
