Bill's To Close In February 2013 For Remodel
3595 Las Vegas Boulevard South [map]
We already knew that Bill's had the plans, now it has the money, too, for a remodel so big it will cause the Strip hotel-casino to close early next year.
Caesars Entertainment says it will shutter Bill's on February 4, 2013 in order to pump $185 million dollars into the aging property. The expansive renovation will call for new "guest rooms, casino floor and common areas" as well as "the addition of a new second floor restaurant." A lot of that money will also go towards creating a rooftop dayclub/nightclub complete with pool. The new experience will be managed by a familiar name, Drai's. You can read more in-depth details, as we've previously shared, here.
When Bill's reopens, vaguely reported as sometime in early 2014, it won't be Bill's, anymore. It will have a new, as yet unannounced name. Hopefully, nothing with a 'q.' Share your suggestion for its new name below!
Update: We asked Caesars what this news would mean for the current incarnation of Drai's and for beer pong which migrated to Bill's after the closure of O'Sheas. A spokesperson told us they don't have those answers at this time.
