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.
There's no timeline and no funds (just yet), but there are plans, big plans, for Bill's.
The aging Strip property that we all know
and most walk by could be completely different. At some point. In the near future. Or later. When, we just don't know. But, how is something we do, now.
Caesars Entertainment wants to give Bill's Gamblin' Hall (formerly the Barbary Coast) a complete overhaul and its detailing just what it wants to do in plans submitted to the local planning commission. A design review terms the project as giving a "more modern and contemporary design " to the hotel "which will be more consistent with the facade and theme" of the Flamingo,
Imperial Palace The Quad and The Linq. Meaning, "new paint, wrought iron railings, awnings and trim" on the exterior. Oh, and three additional floors.
A few months ago, we reminded you to not forget about Casino Royale when looking for some fun in Vegas. While we love Casino Royale, we also thought it might be a good idea to let you know about fun things to do at other budget-friendly Las Vegas properties. Today we'll tell you about Bill's Gamblin Hall and Saloon.
Bill's is owned by Caesars Entertainment, and Caesars has made it no secret that Bill's is the red-headed stepchild of their properties. Bill's was acquired by Caesars Entertainment in 2007 when the property was known as the Barbary Coast. They changed the name to Bill's after Harrahs founder William Harrah, but to this day they still have yet to incorporate the property into Total Rewards or give it a Twitter account. All other Caesars properties in Vegas (even O'Sheas) are part of Total Rewards. But that's not to say there aren't fun things to do at Bill's.
