The city of Las Vegas is so enamored with hosting a Formula 1 Grand Prix race that it is willing to make alterations as needed.
Take the Venetian Hotel, for instance.
According to Fox Las Vegas, the luxury hotel based on the Italian city of Venice is removing its outdoor canals, however temporary, to construct an invitation-only viewing platform for the race.
Race events and the race itself will be held later this month, from November 16 to 18.
Officials say the water drained from the canals comes straight from the Colorado River. It will be sent to a water treatment facility and repurposed. It is expected to be pumped back into Lake Mead. No water will be lost in the process, and the Venetian will replenish the canals.
But, at least for a little while, tourists who were looking forward to a gondola ride will have to wait.

The Venetian is reclaiming the water because the strip hotels face more stringent water restrictions. The Venetian still has gondola rides inside the hotel.
The Formula 1 race is expected to kick off a bevy of tourism to Las Vegas for sports-related activities, including the Super Bowl in February.

Every year is a big year in Las Vegas, with tourism records being broken regularly. But by any standards this is really big year–we just saw the debut of the super high-profile F1 race, the Las Vegas Grand Prix, and just before that, the opening of the world’s most technologically advanced music and performance venue, the Sphere, kicking off with a run of U2 concerts that has already been extended twice. The first ever Sin City Super Bowl is coming in February, but before that there’s one other huge happening–the December 13th grand opening of the Fontainebleau Las Vegas, an entirely new mega resort and casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
Hotel bars have had a bit of a patchy reputation in the last few decades, often with drab, soulless decor and an uninspired clientele. But recently, they’ve come into a category of their own as somewhere you would choose to spend your night, even if you’re not a guest. They employ pioneering bar professionals who create avant-garde drinks menus and have brought much-needed pizzazz back into the surroundings. Here are four hotel bars in Europe you’ll want to have on your radar for your next visit.
With less than three months to go until the Super Bowl LVIII touches down in Las Vegas, the destination has launched a new campaign urging football fans to ‘celebrate excessively’ during its inaugural stint as host city.
Forget underground vaults filled with cash — the next high-tech ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ caper in Las Vegas may be breaking into the dry-aging room below the new Peter Luger Steak House at Caesars Palace. “There’s well over one million dollars of prime steaks in that locker,” says Daniel Turtel, Vice President of Peter Luger Steak House. “Though it would be a lot harder to walk out of the casino carrying 35lb. short loins than stacks of chips.”
This weekend, F1 fans can expect a visually enthralling experience, as custom real-time content tracks across the world’s largest LED screen of the Sphere, as part of the official broadcast for the Las Vegas Grand Prix.
The newest new thing in Las Vegas is the glow dome, the Sphere. Some 18,000 fans a night have made the pilgrimage to see U2 at the Sphere since September. Yet when the band shot their new music video, “Atomic City,” U2 went to downtown Las Vegas, founded 1905, to film in front of the Plaza Hotel and its Carousel Bar.
