Today is the last day for Bill’s Gambling Hall and Saloon. Whoop de do. It’s just another change to the Vegas strip and I’m all for change.
When Bill’s reopens next year, what had become a Strip antique will be a boutique hotel with new hotel rooms, a refurbished casino, a second-story restaurant, and a rooftop pool and nightclub. It will have yet another name.
A boutique hotel and casino seems like something that makes sense for today’s market. I’m not very nostalgic and I have little care for a casino I’ve never been to. This is being called a full renovation so I’m assuming all of the rooms will be renovated and new unlike the half assed renovation of the Imperial Palace into The Quad.
I like new shiny new things and I ‘m looking forward to seeing what the future holds for the property when it re-opens in a couple years. I imagine that this will just continue the migration of low rollers downtown and there’s nothing wrong with that.
If you frequented Bill’s the POV Blog tells you what other Caesars properties you can visit to find things like beer pong and performers like Fat Elvis. If you’ll miss cheap gaming, head downtown or to any of the casino’s in these hotels.
