Given the success of Casino hotels like Paris, New York New York, and The Venetian, the latest addition to the Las Vegas strip was bound to follow the same playbook, but developers wanted to shake things up.

“Sure, we could have gone with a London or Moscow theme but people are more discerning these days so we had to look beyond the obvious”

It didn’t take them long to realize what that less obvious choice was – Pittsburgh.

“We’re super excited about the potential for sports tie-ins, and classic Pittsburgh delicacies like Primanti’s sandwiches and ‘O’ fries are tailor made for a fun casino atmosphere.”

The looming glass structure inspired by the PPG building dwarfs the Eiffel tower of neighbor Paris. Inside, different Pittsburgh neighborhoods are represented throughout the gaming floors, including a full size replica of Carson Street on the South Side from 15th to 17th street.

“Next time you’re in Sin City, why not join us in Marios for the nightly pierogi eating contest.”

They’re also confident they can empty the seats in the Caesar’s Palace theatre given the Marquee entertainment they have lined up to compete with Celine Dion.

“We are pleased to announce that Donny Iris will be following in the footsteps of The King and taking up residency on our main stage.”

Gamblers will also be able to enjoy the music of house band The Clarks year round.

The Yinzer Palace Hotel and Casino is now taking bookings with a special 10% discount available if you can explain what a Pittsburgh Left is.

  1. Don’t miss the 40ft tall Sidney Crosby Fountain of Tears. With just the slightest touch, volumes of water gush from the eyes of this magnificent life like reproduction of the untouchable one.

  2. The Iron City Light Pond lets you pick your own carp for dinner. The potholes in the casino floor are filled with pierogi, and when you cross the replica Smithfield Street into the Civic Arena, the motorcycle cops give you real tickets for made up shit.

  3. excellent information you guys have here what is everybodys comments on here page

  7. How about Mineo’s or Vincent’s?

    Why not, we have so much to offer here in “The Burg”.Took a ride to the airport, remember when the path there was nothing but weeds & empty lots, now dynamic growth & more hotels than ever. Go Pittsburgh!

  10. They could have that fancy valet parking where they save you a spot by putting a chair out by the curb.

    Hey Vegas, yinz’ll never be the same again! how about a replica Clemente bridge in there somewhere too?!

  12. Didn’t Bob Dylan write “Friday” while staying at that hotel?

  13. What a hoot, I’d go in a heartbeat . Some developer needs to get this place going .

  14. Somebody should make this REALLY happen. There’s enough Pittsburghers out there to work there so to provide the accent, the restaurants would be Eat n Park, Primantis, Pierogies Plus & Grandview with a view of the point. Serve Iron City & Rolling Rock, throw in Carson st and a high roller section called “Jagoffs with 2 jobs n’at. DONE!!

  15. If you want to go to a Pittsburgh themed casino, go to the Rivers Casino located in…….PITTSBURGH, PA.

    The housekeeping redds up!

  17. If this were real, there would finally be someplace for yinzers to travel and feel comfortable besides Ocean City and Myrtle Beach. And then they can see lots of Europe and tropical paradises at the same time without changing their Steeler jersey! Hurrah!

  18. I live in Vegas, I would be there more than at home, getting my Primanti fix, great place to get my Iron City and of course to watch the games 🙂 so when is this all suppose to happen and is it going next to the Paris?

  19. apparently the meaning of the word SATIRE is not common knowledge in the burg! Go Stillers!

  20. get out of town,kool

  21. The top end casinos typically have high-end boutiques on site. Finally, Pants N Nat comes to Vegas!

  22. This is NOT REAL. Read the top of the website. It’s just for laughs. Kind of a fun idea,though, bringing Pittsburgh to the masses.

  23. This is not a hoax. Just spent the weekend there. Had a Primanti sandwich and some Campeti’s pizza. I can’t believe they built this. The place was packed.

  24. Let’s leave Pittsburgh and go on vacation to a Pittsburgh themed hotel! Dumbest thing ever

  25. We do have a Pittsburgh themed bar & grill in San Francisco called Giordano Brothers which is rip from Primanti Brothers with the coleslaw, frenchfries stuffed sandwiches. Turtle creek Ale and lots of Steeler, Pirate, Pitt Panther and Kennywood pictures, signs etc. through out the place.

  26. This confirms what I always thought: Pittsburgh is unique and beyond!

  27. I’m baffled and amazed by the number of people sharing this on Facebook as though it is real, actual news.

    It’s sad.

    • Shut up Sean

      • I believe that Being Brave means that you remember who it was yor#7821&;ue meant to be and act like that person. To build life one day at a time and fill it with everything that you want, not what others want for you. Bravery is the wings, self love is the wind beneath them.

  28. From your lips to god’s ears.

  29. Vegas is on my bucket list to get to see the Yinzer would be a whole lot better!!

  30. This is a f*cking joke right?

  31. This is a joke right?
