The DJ Bubble Bursts!

Oh nosies!!!!  Las Vegas is starting to ditch the loud DJ club and (GASP!) put together a quiet lounge where CONVERSATION IS ENCOURAGED?????

I love the change, but precisely where are you going to get conversationalists in today's Gen X and Millennial generations to populate these clubs?

Populate the clubs with attractive women, and it shouldn't be impossible to get guys to show up.

And it's Vegas, so there's not going to be any shortage of attractive women hungry for work.

It does not surprise me that DJ's are dropping off the scene in Vegas. For one thing there are too many out there already and they all play the same shit in jusr about every night club.

back in my day I used to visit lounges where a person can chill and have a conversation. I'm glad there gone

What, you mean people won't have to text each other at the same table to hold a conversation?

OMG!

About freaking time.

Because the millenials don't have money. Gen Xers and late boomers -- ie guys between my age and yours -- do.

And are fit enough to enjoy the Vegas still.

Now (shock) they may find musicians who can play jazz and (horror) some post modern big bands so that we can not only converse, but dance.

Jesus. You sound like such a tool. You won't approve this comment, but you should know that at least one 25 yr old millenial finds your need to be condescending immature and irritating.

In times past the conversations would begin spontaneously but now they will sit quietly and tap on their smart phones. Conversation 2.0?

If having nowhere to need - let alone be able to gain - conversational skills is what killed the ability in the first place, maybe having to converse will spark it again. A man can hope.

On the other hand, the guy they interviewed, decent realization of reality aside, sounds like the sort of complete I Define Cool douchebag that made me stop messing with clubs in the first place.

Where will you find the demographic(s) that can actually still make conversation? In the people who actually have the money to spend in a casino...Boomers and X'ers.

Just got back from Vegas on Sunday night as I was there for the NCAA tournament.

I noticed drink service had declined in the casinos and fewer friendly table dealers than when I was there Labor Day 2014 .

Still had a great time.

You mean people who communicate verbally with each other while maintaining eye contact?

Yeah, that could be a problem.

Club owners need to just make sure that there's a good WiFi infrastructure in place so that customers can continue texting each other. Imagine the extreme of going from deafening noise to complete silence (except for ringtones) in which you could hear a flea fart...

Power jacks for the iPhones at every table. Conversation won't be across the table, but around the world.
