Three more venues closed at the Palms this week, the resort announced Thursday, in addition to the N9NE Steakhouse and Ghostbar, which were reported Wednesday.
Closures of China House, The Lounge and the casino center bar Social bring the total to five this week. The moves will “allow for new construction to take shape,” a resort representative said.
The N9NE space will reportedly “make way for a new restaurant concept,” but fans of longtime chef Barry S. Dakake will be able to enjoy some of his creations during the transition. Later this month he will roll out a “best of N9NE” menu at Nove Italiano atop the Fantasy Tower, which will be open seven days a week during the downtime.
These closures reduce the current dining options at Palms to Nove, the new Lucky Penny Café, French restaurant Alize and the recently opened “gastro grill” Social Table. The latter, however, is temporary and is expected to be replaced in 2018, following the planned re-opening of the buffet at the end of 2017. Café 6 is also open for dining at Palms Place.
Station Casinos representatives have said the company is investing more than $140 million in upgrades at the property it purchased last year.
