Renovated rooftop pool — with food truck — to open at Plaza

After a “multimillion dollar renovation” the rooftop Pool at the Plaza will open for hotel guests and the public on July 2 at the Plaza in downtown Las Vegas.

The entire renovated pool deck encompasses about 70,000 square feet, making it one of the largest in downtown Las Vegas.

According to a statement, the new amenities include “new resort-style furnishings, a wet deck, hot tub, refurbished outdoor recreation space and its own food truck.”

In the statement, officials described the Pool at the Plaza is a “retro Palm Springs-meets classic downtown Las Vegas” outdoor space.

The renovations refurbished and redesigned the pool to include a wet deck with several lily pad daybeds. The Plaza also added a 12-person hot tub, new chaise lounge chairs, greenery, gaming, and multiple dining areas with a new bar and several food options, including the pool’s own “full-size food truck.”

A spokeswoman for the hotel said the food truck would be lifted to the roof by crane.

Six brand new cabana suites available for rental provide guests with a private poolside retreat, complete with televisions, fans, refrigerators and safes as well as a complimentary fruit plate and cheese and cracker tray, officials aid.

The renovations also refurbished adjacent tennis and basketball courts and added dedicated pickleball courts, making the Plaza the only hotel/casino in Las Vegas with dedicated courts for this fast growing sport.
