After recently revealing its latest partnership scheme, American casino-entertainment provider, Caesars Entertainment Inc. (NASDAQ: CZR) has announced a multimillion-dollar investment at Caesars Palace that will see the renovation of the original main entrance, main casino, and porte-cochère at the 85-acre Las Vegas Strip resort property.
According to the Reno, Nevada-based company’s Tuesday press release, construction on the project will commence in early July, with “the majority of the work” complete by New Year’s Eve.
Included in the renovation are an “extravagant entryway, redesigned gaming areas and a new lobby bar,” along with a ground-up rebuild of the property’s main entrance. Upon completion, “a dramatic and soaring dome and barreled ceiling over a stunning 15-foot tall statue of Augustus Caesar” will greet guests.
Also included in the project are a pair of state-of-the-art gaming pits, to be situated on either side of the enhanced entrance, a new lobby bar, as mentioned, and the “legendary domed table games floor” will be completely renovated as well.
Regional President for Caesars Entertainment Inc., Sean McBurney said the undertaking encompasses a “full reimagining’ of their main entrance.
“Completely rebuilding the front entrance of one of the world’s most iconic destinations is no small task, and we’re excited to get started and create a stunning new visual welcome for our guests,” McBurney said.
The company goes on to detail the following changes that will occur during the July through December construction. They are as follows:
- The main valet off Las Vegas Blvd will accommodate Caesars Rewards Diamond and Seven Star members exclusively
- The Colosseum valet, which is located on the ground floor of the Caesars Palace self-parking garage off Frank Sinatra Drive, will accommodate all valet guests
- Rideshare pick-up and drop-off will be relocated to the exit doors next to television personality Lisa Vanderpump’s “Vanderpump Cocktail Garden”
- Express hotel check-in/check-out kiosks will be positioned at all available entrances
Amalfi by Bobby Flay:
Meanwhile, the 85-acre Las Vegas resort, which features 3,980 hotel guest rooms and suites, including the all-new Palace Tower featuring 10 new luxury villas, the 182-room Nobu Hotel Caesars Palace, and Forbes Star Award-winning The Laurel Collection by Caesars Palace, also recently debuted celebrity chef Bobby Flay’s new 9,000 square feet Italian seafood restaurant, Amalfi by Bobby Flay.
Inspired by the Amalfi Coast located along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region, the restaurant took over Flay’s 16-year-old Mesa Grill. Situated right off the casino floor, the restaurant features a 30-seat bar, and 40-seat lounge and a private dining room.
As mentioned, the Reno-based hotel and casino entertainment company also recently revealed that it had been chosen by the not-for-profit Columbus Exposition and Racing (CER) to build and operate a Harrah’s-branded casino and racetrack in the city of Columbus, Nebraska.
The approximately $75 million investment will reportedly see the addition of a new one-mile horse racing track, and feature a 40,000 square foot casino with 400-plus slot machines, 20 table games, and a sportsbook. The property will also offer a restaurant and retail space and is expected to be completed in late 2022.
