Harrah's is investing a vote of confidence in the throwback style of their Piano Bar by opening up their lounge right onto the Strip. The home of dueling piano performances by identical twins Kim and Tamara Pinegar intends to remove part of the glass windows facing Las Vegas Boulevard and add 14 new outdoor tables for guests.
Current paperwork indicates the very busy sidewalk area, with views of the Strip and Guy Fieri's Vegas Kitchen & Bar, could also be used for future dining as well as the expected drinking. In addition to the tinkling of a piano soundtrack, the lounge also hosts a spirited karaoke session three nights a week.
The Piano Bar has been home to the vocal stylings of local institutions Big Elvis and long time lounge habitué Cook E. Jarr, who played his last set at the bar in 2014. The Jarr can currently be found at Napoleon's Lounge at Paris Las Vegas.
Harrah's is slowly undergoing a series of improvements, most recently the debut of The Creperie at the Fulton Street Food Hall, offering sweet and savory crepes. Elsewhere, an ongoing remodel of their hotel rooms are part of a commitment by Caesars to to upgrade 4,800 rooms across four resorts. Last September, an estimated construction budget of $31,438,100 was earmarked for a remodel of Harrah's Carnaval South Tower.
