FN Spy the Magazine: Tony's Town
Tony Hsieh

Zappos.com’s CEO, Tony Hsieh, catches Spy up on all the action in downtown Las Vegas:

What’s new downtown since the last round of shows?
TH:
“Zappos.com has officially taken over the former City Hall building. The Container Park [7th Street and Fremont Street] opened in November and has been a big hit.”

And the biggest must-see at the Container Park?
TH:
“There is a 40-foot-tall praying mantis [formerly featured at the Burning Man festival] at the Container Park that shoots out 20-foot flames. It causes people to scream, then laugh.”

Where is your top dinner spot?
TH:
“Gold Spike [217 Las Vegas Blvd. N.] is a former casino we converted into a co-working space by day and a fun bar/lounge by night. It’s great for late-night eating.”
