The Palms casino has returned. Once more. The Palms reopened last Wednesday with a new homeowner, following a $700 million remodeling by Station Casinos that struggled to reach the off-Strip casino-resort hip once more — and a 2-year closure due to the disease outbreak.
Once the gates opened for business, there was a huge VIP party, firework displays, and a huge gathering packed the casino floor.
All of this was greatly aided by the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians of Southern California, which purchased the shuttered resort the year before and was the first indigenous tribe to own a Las Vegas casino.
San Manuel needs to concentrate on gaming and hospitality instead of the nightlife that once made the Palms famous. Cynthia Kiser Murphey, who initially ran MGM Resorts’ New York-New York for twelve years, is in charge of putting that vision into action.
According to Murphey, tourists will start noticing a few changes, ranging from the sportsbook to the craftsmanship and reworked communal areas.
On launch weekend, the casino had bands, and on Tuesday, they had dueling pianos. Chefs are also being brought in for pop-up events. They’re going to be bringing in local cooks to showcase ethnic foods, and then they’ll have them in distinct programming so people will have different thoughts and feelings.
Palms returned approximately half of their pre-pandemic workforce. 79 of them are “day one” staff members who started on the first day 20 years ago
Not only did they bring back the heritage and warm hospitality, but they also had an understanding of the estate in the society, which was extremely helpful.
In addition, they are mentoring 2,000 new staff members. Meanwhile, she stated that they intend to reopen The Pearl concert venue this summer and that Ghostbar will reopen on July 4th. Oh, and she mentioned that parking is free.
