Bill's Gamblin Hall, Las Vegas Institution, Closes | News
LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon closed its doors on the Las Vegas Strip Monday.
Drai's After Hours, a nightclub inside the Old West-themed casino, held a final bash Sunday night.
The casino is expected to reopen in 2014 as a boutique hotel with a new name. The nightclub is expected to re-open as well.
Caesars Entertainment Corp. announced last fall that it had secured $185 million to gut Bill's Gamblin' Hall and convert it into an upscale hotel and club.
The casino kitty-corner to the Bellagio was known as the Barbary Coast until 2007.
