The boutique resort replacing the former Bill's Gamblin' Hall will feature a top floor, two-tier pool concept with three separate bathing areas, digital walls and a dance floor that snakes between the swimming pools. Focused on "aquatic ambiance," the design features an infinity pool with views of the Strip and a 2,000-square-foot dance floor.

Bill's Gamblin' Hall closed in January and with it, the veteran Drai's After Hours nightclub. The club is relocating to Bally's before ultimately returning to this location to oversee the penthouse club and pool attraction.

Three bathing areas are scheduled for the roof. On the 10th floor, the two pools will be nine feet deep, while upstairs, a three-foot spa pool with an infinity edge and Strip views will be three feet deep. Details registered with the Southern Nevada Health District cite the "high aesthetic value" of the project.

Two bow-tie shaped, 724-square-foot pools dominate the scene, divided by a thin dance floor. A separate 2,202-square-foot dance floor is located to the right with two 319-square-foot bars on either side. Seating, planters and cabanas surround the pools. Large digital walls installed between the two floors complete the dayclub feel.

A substantial 1,293-square-foot kitchen rounds out the amenities. Among the complete renovation plans for the property, a second-floor restaurant "from a prestigious L.A. group" is also reported to be part of the of the $185 million budget. The whole process is estimated to take 15 months.
