Designed by Brittney Gustafson of Summerlin Style, the welcoming and airy design features refreshing neutral hues with pops of unexpected greens and color, the main dining room has seating for 60. Two private dining rooms are perfect for groups of 50 or fewer. The Laguna Bar & Lounge is a stylish and expansive indoor lounge with open views of the pool terrace that offers more than seats. It immerses guests in serenity with the ability to plug in, relax and unwind at the luxurious seating areas and bar stools.
Choose from an extensive list of spirits, wines, beers, fresh juices, and non-alcoholic beverages. Finish things off with light bites from the innovative menu for that feeling of Las Vegas summer, any time of year.
Discover a laid-back vibe at Laguna Pool at Palms Place. Offering spacious, comfortable furniture, personalized food and beverage service, and plush loungers, Laguna Pool boasts a dynamic wrap-around pool, jacuzzi, and private cabanas – with dedicated nighttime dining cabana opportunities to come.
In honor of the opening and in recognition of beloved Chef Kerry Simon whose eatery previously occupied the location prior to him losing the battle with Multiple System Atrophy (MSA), the San Manuel Gaming and Hospitality Authority (SMGHA) along with Palms Casino Resort donated $25,000 to MSA, a national organization dedicated to improving the quality of life and building hope for people living with MSA.
“We couldn’t be happier to welcome Chef Luke Palladino and Meta-Hospitality to Palms Place,” said Palms Casino Resort General Manager, Cynthia Kiser Murphey. “The team has created a menu that is like a delicious culinary adventure from morning to late night and with incredible offerings perfect for lounging poolside as well. Additionally, with free parking, the location is ideal for Palms Place guests, residents, along with locals, and visitors to Palms.
