The D Casino Hotel Experiences a Week-Long Rush of Famous Faces from Sports to Youtube
What happens at the D Casino Hotel finds its way to VegasNews! Word always spreads quickly at the downtown hot spot, and last week was certainly no different. It all started when UFC President Dana White stopped in for a good time (Pictured: The D Owner Derek Stevens with UFC President Dana White and UNLV Football Coach Tony Sanchez – Photo credit: the D Casino Hotel)

Dana seems to be one of the property’s most loyal guests, whether he’s catching up with friends, chowing down on a steak at Andiamo Italian Steakhouse, or posing with a slew of starstruck fans.

A cool moment occurred when UNLV Rebels’ head coach, Tony Sanchez, was spotted chatting it up with Dana and D Owner, Derek Stevens, at the world famous LONGBAR. Can you imagine the level of sports talk that occurs in a trio like that? Even THEY knew that a photo was necessary to commemorate that moment.

The buzz didn’t stop there! One of the D’s Executive Hosts, Darren Banks, is a former left wing for the NHL Boston Bruins. He welcomed his long-time pal, and at one point, NHL rival, Murray Craven, to the excitement of the D. They spent a couple of hours catching up and discussing NHL’s Las Vegas Golden Knights, of which Murray was named Senior Vice President!
