The big changes at the Palms continue, this time with the restaurants at the resort. Already the former 24 Seven Cafe closed at the resort in January to make way for a $2.6 million renovation. That space reopens July 1 as Lucky Penny with its own 24-hour menu. Palms is already touting a menu of “soups, salads, pizzas, wok favorites, burgers, sandwiches, dinner entrées, boozy shakes, cold-pressed juices and of course, a selection of healthy options.” The 6,934-square-foot complete makeover will reconfigure the walls, finishes, bar, light fixtures, the kitchen and the entire look of the main dining room.
The former world’s largest Hooters clocking in at 15,200 square feet closed in May, and now the resort plans to open Social Table in its place in mid-July. A press release makes it sound like a temporary solutions since it will “run through the end of the year.” Poolside dining, craft beers and grilled dishes and bar favorites make up the menu.
Also on tap, a rehaul of Bistro Buffet, which closes on June 30. The space converts into a food hall, reopening in December.
The former Rain nightclub is already going through its own renovation with a separate exterior entrance and drop off plaza that no longer requires guests to enter through the casino, extending the pool deck out toward the street, a reworking of the spa areas to enhance both levels and moving the bungalows into a position that can be seen by both pedestrians and motorists.
