LAS VEGAS—Caesars Entertainment Corporation announced the collaboration with New York-based luxury hotel brand Gansevoort Hotel Group and nightclub owner Victor Drai to launch a new resort at the location of Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon. Gansevoort Las Vegas is planned to open on the Strip in early 2014.
Gansevoort Las Vegas will be the fourth installment of the luxury hospitality brand. Following a $185 million renovation, Gansevoort’s style will completely reimagine the hotel experience in Las Vegas and create an intimate property. Gansevoort Las Vegas will feature 188 Parisian apartment-style guestrooms including 19 suites, designed by Tandem Las Vegas. The lobby will welcome guests upon arrival, with a redesigned lobby bar, ultra-lounge, retail outlets, and 40,000 square-foot casino. A destination restaurant overlooking the Strip will round out the guest experience.
“We are confident that the Gansevoort Las Vegas will be unlike anything that exists in Las Vegas today,” said Michael Achenbaum, founder and president, Gansevoort Hotel Group.
Gansevoort Las Vegas will also feature the creation of Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub, Victor Drai’s reinvention of Las Vegas nightlife featuring a 65,000 square-foot indoor/outdoor nightclub and rooftop pool experience. After Hours by Drai will also return in the same location, offering its dedicated club goers an all new experience.
“Drai’s After Hours has been a staple of Las Vegas nightlife for the past 15 years,” said Victor Drai , creator and founder of the legendary nightclub. “I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to once again re-invent and re-invigorate the nightlife scene right where it all began 15 years ago.
The renovated resort is anticipating employing more than 1,000 people.
