Shadow Bar Out, Hakkasan In at Caesars Palace?

Rumors of the Hakkasan Group taking over the now shuttered lounge grow louder.

After an impressive run of 14 years, the gyrations of silhouetted dancers and flair bartenders at Caesars Palace's Shadow Bar have come to a quiet finale.

The entire 4,585-square-foot shuttered lounge will be demolished and local rumor heavily points to it being replaced with a new venture from the Hakkasan Group.

The re-branding gossip coincides with the group's imminent integration into the resort, first with their 75,000 Omnia Nightclub located not far away across casino floor and the club's adjacent Searsucker restaurant from chef Brian Malarkey. Omnia will debut on March 12, with Searsucker still penciled for an April opening.

Located next door to Nobu Caesars Palace, Shadow Bar's enduring gimmick was to feature presumed nude dancers performing behind a screen to "create an air of mystery" with their silhouetted routines. The resort has removed all online mention of the lounge, but no timetable or update for its replacement has been announced.
