The Carousel Bar at the Plaza is now eyeing March of next year for its opening.
When it debuts, the carousel-themed outdoor bar will feature animated elements like carousel horses that swing up and down, martini glasses that spin, and larger-than-life dice. While it nears completion, the Plaza has revealed some of the cocktails that will debut alongside the showpiece bar. The “money in the bank” is a tequila cocktail with Aperol, pineapple, and lime that is garnished with an edible $100 bill. The “carousel grand pineapple” is a blended piña colada served in a real pineapple. Order the “dealer's choice” to roll the dice and let Lady Luck determine what goes in your drink. You’ll roll three dice – for a spirit, a mixer, and one other ingredient, and a bartender will mix up your concoction.
The Horseshoe Brand Tries Its Luck in Las Vegas
Nearly a year after first announcing plans to change its name, Bally’s Las Vegas becomes the Horseshoe Las Vegas today. The rebrand includes a multi-million dollar renovation of the old Bally’s space, including new interiors and exteriors as the Strip hotel and casino becomes Caesars’ 10th Horseshoe-branded property. The rebranding coincides with other new additions to the resort. In June, the steakhouse, Jack Binion’s Steak opened. Its namesake, Jack Binion, was the former president and COO of Horseshoe Casino and son of the downtown Horseshoe Club owner Benny Binion. A new arcade, called Arcade, took over the former sportsbook space. When Caesars Entertainment announced the plans for the Horseshoe in January, Jason Gregorec, senior vice president and general manager of the property, told USA Today they plan to add at least three new restaurants.
