Queen Las Vegas, an upcoming boutique hotel and gaming lounge, is designed to cater specifically to the LGBTQ+ community. This autumn, the establishment will open its doors on S. Las Vegas Blvd., situated north of the renowned Strip.
A Unique Addition to the Thunderbird Hotel Complex
The Queen boutique hotel will be nestled within the larger Thunderbird Hotel complex, a 100-room facility located at 1215 S. Las Vegas Blvd. The property resides in the Gateway District, just north of the historic Little White Wedding Chapel. Q Group Hospitality, led by CEO Eduardo Cordova, a well-known LGBTQ+ nightlife promoter in Southern Nevada, owns and operates Queen Las Vegas.
The new establishment will occupy 28 rooms within the Thunderbird, offering distinctive amenities such as a gaming lounge, restaurant and bar, and nightclub. These facilities are designed to create a vibrant and inclusive entertainment district for the LGBTQ+ community.
“It has been my mission to create a vibrant and inclusive entertainment district for our LGBTQ+ community, and I’m thrilled to announce that Q Hospitality Group has secured a prime location to create the gayest destination in Las Vegas,” said Cordova.
True to its name, Queen Las Vegas will host daily high-energy drag performances complete with a DJ to evoke the party lifestyle. Patrons can enjoy brunch or dinner with a lineup of resident queens, delectable dishes, bottomless mimosas, vibrant craft cocktails, and an impressive nightclub featuring over 50,000 LED lights.
Maintaining the Thunderbird Legacy
For the loyal guests of the Thunderbird Hotel, there is no need to worry. The hotel will continue to operate, albeit with a reduced room allotment of 72. Known for its affordability and cleanliness, the Thunderbird enjoys a decent 3.6/5 rating on Google reviews.
Q Hospitality plans to open Queen Las Vegas sometime this fall and is currently hiring staff for various positions. Marketed as “The Gayest Destination on the Strip,” Queen Las Vegas promises to be a unique, vibrant, and inclusive destination for the betting LGBTQ+ community who enjoy games such as Baccarat, Craps and Slots, despite not being located on the defined Strip.
Meanwhile, another LGBTQ+-owned boutique hotel, the Bent Inn, is also set to open in Las Vegas later this summer. With these developments, Las Vegas continues to demonstrate its commitment to inclusivity and diversity, ensuring that everyone feels welcome in the city of entertainment.
