The Palms plans to start revealing some of its new restaurants and lounges in May, with debut dates set for three. Scotch 80 Prime, Apex Social Club, and Camden Cocktail Lounge all open on May 18 with a catalog of over-the-top steaks, whiskies, and smoking cocktails. All are part of a $620 million renovation of the resort on the west side of Las Vegas.

First up, Scotch 80 Prime, the steakhouse from executive chef Barry S. Dakake. The restaurant takes over the former N9NE Steakhouse space at the front of the resort with a menu of Kobe beef, seafood towers set on fire, caviar towers with vodka shots, and a Liquid Nitro Dessert Trolley serving flambéed banana splits. The restaurant includes a $3 million collection of whisky that includes the Macallan Fine & Rare Vintage collection. Artwork includes works from Jean-Michel Basquiat, Andy Warhol, KAWS, Damien Hirst, and Scott Hove.

Clique Hospitality’s Andy Masi and nightlife partners Ryan Labbe and Jason “JRoc” Craig bring Apex Social Club and Camden Cocktail Lounge to the resort.

Apex takes over the former Ghostbar at the resort on the 56th floor, converting 8,000-square-foot room with 180-degree views into an open-air boutique nightclub. Four of Dustin Yellin’s Psychogeographies, his famous 3,000-pound humanoid sculptures, find a home at the more relaxed nightclub.

Camden Cocktail Lounge sits next to the resort’s main entrance with table-side cocktails. Some feature dry ice for drama. Others come in a glass shaped like a smoking pipe. The idea here takes the flair of table-side service and adds a dramatic touch that will be the focus of the lounge.

Already, the Palms opened Send Noodles back in February. The Asian restaurant serves Mandarin, Cantonese, Sichuan, Japanese, Korean and Thai dishes as well as riffs on American and Italian classics using Asian ingredients.

And last July, the 24-hour Lucky Penny Café brought a menu of buttermilk Nutella pancakes, braised meatballs, Neapolitan-style pizzas, and brick chicken.

On the horizon during the next phase of construction, more restaurants from Marc Vetri, Bobby Flay and Michael Symon. Vetri and Symon plan to arrive at the resort this fall, while Flay’s restaurant opens next spring.
