Bourbon Street Closes Down Early
Bourbon Street the small off strip property near Ballys and Barbary Coast has closed down for good two weeks earlier than scheduled. The casino-hotel was purchased this summer by Harrahs for future redevelopment and wasn't scheduled to close to October 31st. Because of a water leak at the property they decided to move there guests to other properties and close down sooner. I had visited this property before and it had a tiny casino with a few tables but mainly a slot joint. This property was mainly an overflow joint for the strip and if you couldn't get a room on the strip you would end up here or at the former Maxim hotel-casino. Now im sure Harrahs will demolish it and use the space to link the other properties north of here with Ballys/Paris which they own south of the former Bourbon Street.
