Caesars Palace Las Vegas Renovation
As travelers continue to emerge from hibernation, casinos are once again starting to pour money into properties and renovations. This year seems to be the year of Caesars Entertainment, which has just completed a new entrance at Caesars Palace Las Vegas, ahead of an upcoming rebranding from Bally’s to Horseshoe. Let’s take a quick peek at this extensive Caesars Palace Las Vegas Renovation.
New Light, New Look
Caesars literally raised the roof on the new entrance, replacing a ceiling that risked hitting the average NBA player squarely in the forehead, as well as the dome, which was less than inspiring.
They hit the mark with the new space. The main entrance, dome and porte-cochère are now not only the same height as the lobby but also have incredible lighting that doesn’t make you feel like you are walking through a government building. The focus of the space is the chandelier, which consists of more than 70,000 crystals.
A 15-foot marble statue of Augustus Caesar is planted directly underneath the chandelier, and really, that’s what everyone needs in their living room. Past the entryway, there are two new gaming pits, as well as a 3,200-pound chandelier in the casino dome.
Have a Drink While You Wait
Checking in on a Friday night and standing behind 200 other guests? No problem, have a drink. The new Galleria Bar in the lobby, designed to look like an Italian study, has 24 seats and 22 multi-game slot machines, meaning that two people will be unable to lose their money before even checking into their room. The bar is actually colored in gold and black and looks spectacular, graced by murals and four statues of Venus, who stare down at you disapprovingly. You’ll have your choice of wine, signature cocktails, or whatever happens to catch your eye. No word yet on whether they give free refills on the Diet Coke.
Signature cocktails at Galleria Bar include:
- Branson XO Sidecar, made with Branson XO Cognac, Cointreau, lemon juice, egg whites and a cinnamon sugar rim
- Denarius, made with Ron Zacapa Centenario XO rum, orange juice, coconut cream, pineapple juice and a fresh pineapple wedge garnish
- Empress Smash, made with Empress 1908 Gin, Aperol, lemon juice, strawberries and basil
- Queen of Hearts, made with Casamigos tequila, watermelon purée, lime juice, a pinch of salt, sliced jalapenos and a fresh watermelon wedge
- Wild Orchid, made with Ketel One Oranje Vodka, lemon juice and crème de violette
A New Las Vegas Upgrade Cycle?
As you probably know, Las Vegas tends to go through boom and bust cycles. Although the peaks and valleys have flattened over time, when economic conditions allow, the companies pump capital into the Strip. Despite the global health crisis, we seem to be in yet another period of construction. In 2020, Circa opened downtown, the first new casino on Fremont Street in decades. A year later, we got Resorts World, a project that had gone through several iterations before finally opening in June. The Strip property has three hotels, almost 3,500 rooms, and seven pools at the $4 billion property, including a private one at the boutique hotel Crockfords, which offers fantastic value for a luxury product.*
For some more details, be sure to watch the quick video “Walk-Through of Caesars Palace Refresh” by the famous (
infamous) vegas-influencer Scott of Vital Vegas.
But no matter what happens with future casinos in Las Vegas, it’s nice to see Caesars Entertainment putting some money into its icon property. She certainly deserves it.
