Bill's Gamblin' Hall
On May 21st 2014 Bill's Gamblin' Hall was relaunched as The Cromwell.
Formerly known as Barbary Coast Hotel, Bill's Gamblin' Hall and Saloon
was a small property with just 188 guest rooms yet it had a prime location at the central Las Vegas Boulevard-Flamingo Road junction, in between Bally's
. Most of the property faced Flamingo Road but the front entrance was on the Strip, beneath a colourful red and gold carousel. Footbridges crossed the two main streets, one leading to Caesars Palace
directly opposite. The casino was named after William (Bill) Harrah, who founded the Harrah's gaming business, now known as Caesars Entertainment Corporation.
Bill's had 17,000 sq ft of casino space, two restaurants - Victorian Cafe
and Steakhouse at Bill's
, the Drai's
nightclub, and two bars. There was no regular entertainment, and no pool, however guests were able to use the leisure facilities at the adjacent Flamingo.
