Bill's Gambling Hall to be renovated

Caesars Entertainment has announced a $180 million dollar “Renovation of Bill’s Gamblin Hall”. This was announced with construction at “Las Vegas Linq” already underway, the 550 million dollar retail and shopping experience is planning on bringing new life to the center of the strip. The 180 million dollar reno of Bill’s will include a rooftop pool and a nightclub that would provide some great views of the strip (similar to PURE over at Caesars Palace).  Caesars announced some of tenants in The Linq just two days ago.

The renovation would include an overhaul of the 198 rooms in the hotel, and 17,000+ sq ft of casino gaming space. The renovation could lead to another new name for the properly as well, although nothing has been confirmed yet. It is also unsure if the Steakhouse At Bill’s, which recently closed, will be re-opened before or after the renovations.

New name.. Barbary Coast? We hope so!

It has not been confirmed if there will be a demolition, but at $180 millon dollars, although very expensive, may not be quite enough to include a demolision and complete re-build of the property.

Some of you may recall the previous name, “Barbary Coast”. It was opened May 2, 1979 under that name, and on March 1, 2007 it changed to Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon. Evidence of the old name still exists @ Bill’s on the doors, which have “BC” em blazed on them, which is meant to stand for “Bill’s Casino”, but we know it really was there for “Barbary Coast”.
The original cost of the casino? $11.5 Million…. this will be an EXTENSIVE renovation to say the least.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

    I really wish they would rename it Barbary Coast too. They can’t do that though because of a deal that was made between Harrah’s and Boyd gaming back around 2005 or 2006 trading the Stardust (owned by Harrah’s at the time), for Boyd’s Barbary Coast in order to build the stalled Echelon. When the trade was made, the “Coast” name was not included in the trade. Boyd has properties like Gold Coast and Sun Coast, and didn’t want to give up that name. The same thing happened to South Point. (formally South Coast)
