The gambling field of Las Vegas is well-known around the world as one of the largest and most developed hubs where everybody could find an entertainment offering suiting their preferences. In order to keep the facilities up to date and just as attractive to their guests as usually, casino developers are ready to go above and beyond, such as Palace Station Hotel and Casino which underwent a $192-million rejuvenation over the span of the past months.
Entering a newly refurbished facility is always a great pleasure for every quest as it is able to offer them the latest innovation and a new and improved design to an already familiar and beloved location. Palace Station is one of those locations which brings the very spirit of the fabulous Las Vegas and it has been preserving it for the past 42 years ever since its first day of operation back in 1976. It could be recalled that August 2017 was when plans for the massive renovation were first announced by casino developer Station Casinos LLC.
In its initial version, the location spread across no more than 5,000 square foot and back then it was simply called The Casino. Following the latest expansion Palace Station is now spreading across 220,000 square feet. The venue renovation was a joint one together with Palms Casino Resort and the combined amount of money invested in the two properties reached $800 million.
The year 1991 was the last one to see any major investment in Palace Station which is the reason why the casino operator was willing to introduce it now, amid rapid development in the gambling hub. The first stage of the renovation process was the update of the familiar railroad theme across the casino resort. It could be recalled that the last days of April witnessed the removal of one of the iconic constructions of the casino resorts as the developer got rid of the 126-foot-tall train marquee sign.
Renovation Brings More to the Location
A total of two weeks were necessary for the complete dismantling of the sign which was one of the trademarks of the casino resort, in favor of a more modern look to the property. It should be noted that the sign was first placed there back in 1983, several years after the official launch. Being the first step of the renovation process, it brought many more with itself. Following that Palace Station welcomed four brand new restaurant offerings which will be available to the guests of the location.
They are to the liking of Beers Burgers Desserts, Boathouse Asian Eatery, Mumfresh Buffet, as well as the renovated Feast Buffet which is a Station Casinos very own offering beloved by many. These new locations are set to join the already operating 18-seat Oyster Bar, Little Tony’s Italian-themed restaurant, as well as the steakhouse Charcoal Room. In addition to the new food offerings, there would also be a resort-style pool bringing a lounge arena with private cabanas, lawn games, sun beds, as well as a raised bar.
The casino facility also went through a complete rejuvenation and expansion. This summer will bring a total of 1,800 slot and video poker machines to its players willing to give their luck a try, as well as 43 table games available on offer. The new poker room is expected to be finished in the upcoming months joining the already operating bingo room. Just in time for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, the venue will also welcome a fully-operational race and sports book.
One of the most exciting new features which is sure to attract more tourists and guests to the location is the new premium movie theater which boasts nine screens and is managed by Regal Entertainment Group. The expected inflow of guests is going to be facilitated by the surface parking lot which has enough place for as many as 300 vehicles. Next week is set to witness the new facilities launch operation.
