A new design rendering hints the Indigo Lounge's six figure upgrade might look just at home in a fancier resort than the unassuming Bally's Las Vegas. The popular showroom for energetic local cover bands was shuttered earlier this month and Bally's hopes to re-open by the end of the year.
The new concept appears to add more elaborate drapery and fixtures to the exterior. The publicly announced $300,000 budget will include work on the stage area and add a seating platform. The audio-visual system will also be improved. In June of 2012 the nightspot was given another makeover for a residency by American Idol winner Taylor Hicks.
The resort recently suffered an enormous public relations setback when a fatal shooting incident took place just steps away from the plywood-covered lounge, outside the adjacent Drai's after-hours nightclub.
Still to come on the property, the transformation of the Bally's Steakhouse into BLT Steak in early 2014.
