The times are changing at the Palms, and so is the familiar marquee outside the 17-year-old casino-resort on Flamingo Road.
The sign, which partially featured old-style changeable letters, is being removed in favor of a fully digital message board. For years, the marquee has promoted the property’s largest events.
A 120-foot crane began disassembling the sign this morning, and the all-digital version is expected to go live later this year.
The new signage is part of a property-wide, $485 million renovation project at the Palms, which was purchased in 2016 by Station Casinos parent company Red Rock Resorts Inc.
Other aspects of the renovation include the recently opened eateries A.Y.C.E. Buffet and the Lucky Penny Café.
The Palms is also refreshing the Pearl Concert Theater and adding new nightlife options, with the APEX Social Club going in the space that formerly housed Ghostbar and the Camden Cocktail Lounge. A new center bar and high-limit gaming area also are coming.
