Here's What Bill's Gambling Hall Will Look Like After Being Remodeled As An 'Upscale' Joint

$185 Million To Be Spent For Giving Casino A Radical Makeover


Remember Bill’s Gambling Hall & Saloon on the corner of Las Vegas and Flamingo? Well, that popular casino is now closed, set to be renovated and called “Gansevoort Las Vegas.”

Caesars Entertainment Corp., one of the most aggressive casino developers in the world, owns the property and announced last year that the joint would undergo a huge makeover. When Card Player first reported on the story many of our Facebook fans expressed disappointment with the decision. Bill’s had one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest, no-limit hold’em cash games in town. The $0.50-$1 game was a notch below the common $1-$2.

It’s unclear if that well-known game will be running in the new place, but judging by the style of the ongoing renovations one would reasonably have doubt.

Caesars CEO Garry Loveman said that the new casino would provide a “sophisticated, upscale experience.” The redevelopment is through a partnership with New York-based luxury hotel brand Gansevoort Hotel Group and nightlife mogul Victor Drai, according to the Las Vegas Sun.

The price tag? $185 million.

Bill’s Gambling Hall & Saloon become the name of the property in 2007, after Caesars acquired it from Boyd Gaming, which originally called it the Barbary Coast.

I really liked this place. What I remember most of all was that the beds were very very comfy. I liked the gaming area also.
