Caesars To Give Bill's Gamblin' Hall And Saloon 'Boutique Lifestyle' Makeover

$185 Million Project Will Begin In February 2013


Caesars Entertainment Corp. announced Thursday that it will convert Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon, located on the Las Vegas Strip, into a “boutique lifestyle hotel and casino.”

The remodeling will cost $185 million, the company said.

“This project exemplifies our strategy to develop new experiences that will help attract a broader spectrum of visitors to Las Vegas and our properties,” CEO Gary Loveman said in a statement. “The renovated property will provide visitors with a sophisticated, upscale experience, including a unique rooftop pool and club, which will have a panoramic view of the Las Vegas Strip.”

Bill’s will close on Feb. 4, 2013 and will reopen, under a new name, in early 2014.

So instead of having genuine character, they are going to turn it into another "ultra-hip cutting edge" place on the strip for the Eurotrash tourists and club scene, like the Cosmopolitan.

From a poker perspective, this had the smallest live game I'd ever seen, a $.50/1 NLHE cash game, and the tables are printed to make the felt look like an old wooden table, like they would have played poker on in a western.
