A big $485-million renovation is set for the Las Vegas Palms.
Aimed at restoring the resort to its previous reputation as one of Vegas’ hippest hangs, the project will include room redesigns and renovations, several new celebrity chef-led restaurants, a nightclub and a pool club operated by the Tao Group, a new wellness spa and salon, and a revamping of the Pearl Theater.
This follows the in-progress renovation of the casino, addition of bars and restaurants and addition of a new buffet opening in December.
Wheel hits big at Paris
A gambler hit a $1.3-million jackpot on a Wheel of Fortune machine at the Paris casino in late October. The winner was visiting from Texas. The Wheel of Fortune machine also hit a $1-million jackpot in September at Caesars Palace.
Los Angeles’ famous Canter’s Delis has opened in Tivoli Village on the west side of town and the LINQ Promenade. The owner of the Tivoli location says they will “stay true to the original” eatery.
After 23 years at the MGM Grand hotel, Stage Deli has closed.
We’re running a poll at LasVegasAdvisor.com.
If you could eat at only one buffet on your next Las Vegas trip, which one would it be? One of the fancy high-pricers, like Wynn, Bellagio or Cosmopolitan, or a lower-priced option with lots of value, like M Resort, Mirage or Main Street Station? Cast your vote now.
The winner will be revealed in this column next week.
Question: You wrote about a new zip line coming to the LINQ Promenade. Isn’t there already a zip line on the strip?
Answer: No. You’re probably thinking of the Voodoo Zip Line that spans two towers at the Rio. That one looks over the strip, but isn’t on the strip. FLY LINQ would be the first, with Steve Wynn’s Paradise Park zip following soon after.
