Bill’s Gambling Hall & Saloon, formerly Barbary Coast, is getting cleaned up and rebranded by Harrah’s or maybe even another company.
I’m (Robin Leach) hearing exclusively from very reliable sources that the 4.3-acre property is part of a staggering deal with a major nightlife entertainment force, and everything including the 17,200-square-foot casino will get a major overhaul from top to bottom. When the news is officially announced, it will rock the nightlife scene.
Bills/Barbary Coast has never gotten my interest. In fact, the only time anyone mentions this place is because of Drai’s. A makeover to fit that crowd might make a lot of sense. Since there isn’t a hotel component, I can see Bills being changed into a building with multiple clubs and gambling.
**UPDATE: Thanks for the heads up that there are actually hotel rooms at Bill’s. I’ve never been, but now I know better.
