Plaza Hotel & Casino Unveils Four Projects to Transform its Iconic Main Street Façade and Dome

The Plaza Hotel & Casino recently unveiled details of four large-scale projects that will transform and reimagine its historic Main Street façade, including its porte-cochère, into a one-of-a-kind destination for cocktails, gaming, and dining. The four new projects include an animated Carousel Bar under the Plaza’s iconic dome, downtown’s first smoke-free, social media friendly gaming area, a rooftop patio at Oscar’s steakhouse, and the addition of the popular, Vegas-based Pinkbox Doughnuts. The Carousel Bar’s design preserves the dome’s iconic vintage Vegas lights that have been featured in many movies and shows over the years. The 2,500-square-foot outdoor venue will include an outdoor cooling system and seating for nearly 100 guests in booths, at the bar, and along its outer rail overlooking Main Street at the western entrance to the Fremont Street Experience. Adjacent to Carousel Bar will be downtown’s first smoke-free and social media friendly gaming space with the industry’s latest and most advanced slot machines, including the popular Brian Christopher Slots area that debuted last year at the Plaza. Oscar’s patio will be created on the rooftop deck above the new gaming space and be accessible via the restaurant’s existing lounge. The space will accommodate approximately 225 people and will offer the award-winning restaurant’s full dinner menu in addition to its extensive wine and cocktail lists. Pinkbox Doughnuts’ 1,200-square-foot store will feature a 16-foot-long glass doughnut display case and sell its full line of over 70 different flavors of doughnuts. The projects are expected to be complete by the end of the year. The Plaza and Oscar’s will remain open during construction. For more information, contact Amy E. S. Maier, The Warren Group,
