The Strip-side location previously occupied by Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon will get a new life when Gansevoort Las Vegas opens there in early 2014 following a $185 million renovation, Caesars Entertainment Corp. announced last week.

A collaboration between Caesars and New York-based Gansevoort Hotel Group, Gansevoort Las Vegas will be the only standalone boutique resort on the Las Vegas Strip. The world’s fourth Gansevoort hotel — joining Gansevoort Turks + Caicos, Gansevoort Park Avenue NYC and Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC — it will feature 188 “Parisian apartment-style” guest rooms and a 40,000-square-foot casino, plus a lobby bar, ultra-lounge, several retail outlets, a rooftop pool, and a 65,000-square-foot indoor/outdoor nightclub courtesy of nightlife impresario Victor Drai.

The nightclub, known as Drai's Beach Club and Nightclub, will be available to groups as part of the alternative venues program at Las Vegas Meetings by Caesars Entertainment.

“Gansevoort Las Vegas will be a completely unique upscale lifestyle experience in Las Vegas,” says Tariq Shaukat, executive vice president and chief marketing officer for Caesars Entertainment. “It will set a new standard of fun and modern luxury which only Gansevoort Hotel Group, Victor Drai, and Caesars Entertainment can create. We are confident that Gansevoort Las Vegas will be one of the most exciting destinations in Las Vegas when it opens in 2014.”
