PALMS CASINO RESORT UNVEILS NEW VENUE OPENINGS AS PART OF $620 MILLION RENOVATION
Palms Casino Resort Las vegas has announced the opening of a collection of new restaurants and entertainment venues, the renovation of the resort’s iconic casino, and the unveiling of a property-wide contemporary art programme. Part of the ongoing $620 million reimagination of the property, the opening of these exciting new amenities signals the completion of the previously announced first phase of upgrades, which will yet again transform Palms into Las Vegas’ most elevated destination.
Palms, known for its iconic rooms and suites, is transforming its look with a sophisticated redesign of all of the Fantasy Tower guest rooms, suites and its six famous Sky Villas. Guest rooms and suites were redesigned by Avenue Interior Design to create a memorable and inviting experience. In addition, each of the resort’s Sky Villas is transforming by way of a complete renovation by Bentel & Bentel to provide guests with some of the most luxurious accommodations in the world. The rooms will showcase artwork from acclaimed artists Thrush Holmes, Gary Stranger, Cody Hudson, Sandra Chevrier and Carlos Rolon. This transformation is due to be fully completed by the autumn, although certain luxury rooms and suites are already available for bookings.
Palms will also soon be home to world-class restaurants from award-winning celebrity chefs Michael Symon and Marc Vetri, whose restaurants will debut this autumn, and Bobby Flay, whose restaurant will debut in spring 2019. In addition, TAO Group, one of the most successful nightlife and restaurant companies in the world will be bringing their highly-acclaimed ‘Vandal’ restaurant from New York City to the property in spring 2019.
These exciting new venues will be joined by a spectacular 29,000 square foot nightclub and world-class 73,000 square foot pool club, both developed in partnership with TAO Group, which will redefine the nightclub and dayclub experience in Las Vegas, due to open spring 2019.
ART INSTALLATIONS FROM RENOWNED ARTISTS
Palms has interwoven a one-of-a-kind art programme throughout the property, including a number of pieces from the personal art collections of Frank and Lorenzo Fertitta, with works by globally renowned artists Damien Hirst, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Dustin Yellin. The resort also debuted newly commissioned creations by leading contemporary artists such as Adam Parker Smith, Jason REVOK, Eric Haze, Felipe Pantone, James Jean, Timothy Curtis and many more that have already begun popping up on property. Palms is infusing this wide range of street, modern and blue-chip art into every detail of the hotel – from the newly debuted ‘Wish You Were Here’ front desk collaboration by Olivia Steele and Keegan Gibbs, down to clever in-room amenities designed by Dabs Myla.
CASINO FLOOR REMODEL AND RESORT UPGRADES
