Investors in failed Mob Experience: Jay Bloom ‘has given us a shot at making our money back’
Wednesday, Aug. 20, 2014
Jay Bloom could have left Las Vegas and never looked back. He was sued multiple times by investors, lenders and contractors involved with the Las Vegas Mob Experience, the museum he founded and briefly operated at the Tropicana in 2011. The attraction went bankrupt, was sold for cents on the dollar and closed. But Bloom didn't cut and run. He fought the lawsuits, and today, he not only has put his legal problems to rest but is vowing to repay his investors, even though he's not legally obligated to do so.

"We are the nutritional opposite of any sandwich that you will find anywhere in town," he says.
