After nearly 30 years on the Las Vegas Strip, the Planet Hollywood Restaurant and Bar inside the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace has closed, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. The Las Vegas Strip restaurant permanently closed on the afternoon of Wednesday, May 25. The restaurant initially opened in the Forum Shops back in 1994. In 2012, it relocated into a 9,200-square-foot space on the mall’s third floor. The restaurant was known for its casual dining, but moreso for the celebrity memorabilia that covered the walls.
While the restaurant is now closed, the Planet Hollywood hotel and casino remains open, even with construction continuing at its entrance, where PBR Rock Bar once stood. The 24-hour Cafe Hollywood inside the resort, also owned Planet Hollywood founder and CEO, carries much of the decor and celebrity photos that could be found around the Planet Hollywood restaurant.

The Las Vegas coffee shop chain, Cafe Lola, has opened pink and floral-laden rosé and latte eatery to the Forum Shops. Alexandra Lourdes and Lin Jerome have opened their fifth location of the cafe, which is known for its tea party aesthetic, fruit-topped toasts, and sprinkle-infused coffees. The new cafe is open daily from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
