Las Vegas’ Legendary Nightspot Ghostbar at Palms Casino Resort Receives Sleek Makeover Just in Time for Return of Ghostbar Dayclub

Enter to Win the Ultimate Ghostbar Experience at the Season Three Launch of GBDC on Facebook.com/PalmsCasinoResort

Ghostbar, the legendary boutique nightclub located on the 55th floor of the Ivory Tower at Palms Casino Resort, has a whole new look just in time for the return of Sin City’s most energizing daylife extravaganza. Ghostbar Dayclub (GBDC), the cold-weather answer to Vegas’ wildly popular pool parties, launches its third season on Oct. 19 in the newly renovated ultra-lounge, promising to amp up its exuberant daytime escapades to match the sleek and sexy new look of the hot spot that elevated Palms to the spotlight of Las Vegas nightlife.

“With a high-energy entertainment, nonstop celebrity sightings, and unparalleled views of the Strip, Ghostbar has become one of the most recognizable names in Las Vegas nightlife,” said Chuck Oliverio, General Manager and Vice President of 9Group. “The Ghostbar remodel is a Vegas must-see and we are excited to introduce its sexy, new look just in time for the return of our famed GBDC parties.”

Part of the $50 million renovation that has transformed Palms, the new Ghostbar has been given a head-to-toe makeover in a palette of black, white and striking fuschia. With dramatic Murano-style chandeliers, smooth leather banquettes with ornate wood carved legs, 14-foot floor-to-ceiling windows and its signature panoramic views of the Strip surrounded by lush greenery on the skydeck, Ghostbar’s new look brings it back to the upper echelon of Las Vegas nightlife. Transforming from an open-seating lounge to a high-energy hot spot nightly, provocative and ornately embellished, Ghostbar’s makeover is more than skin deep. In addition to traditional bottle service, Ghostbar introduces an exclusive Rosé champagne cocktail menu, along with all-new savory hookah offerings.

Finished just in time for the launch of what’s become Las Vegas’ most talked-about cold-weather day party, Palms kicks off GBDC Season Three by giving guests the opportunity to win the ultimate Ghostbar and GBDC experience. Now through Monday, Oct. 7, social media mavens can show off their creative side in Palms’ “What’s Your GBDC” contest, where the grand prize winner who creates the most playful word collage from the first letters of the GBDC acronym will score complimentary admission, a VIP table with a piñata, brown bagged 40-ounce malt liquor beverages, cheeseburgers, GBDC swag and a complimentary one night stay in a beautiful Ivory Suite.

The top 12 entries will be open for fan vote on Monday, Oct. 7, with the winners being announced on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Beginning Saturday, Oct. 19, GBDC takes over Ghostbar every Saturday at 1 p.m. Over the last two years, the whimsical, no-holds-barred weekly party has become known for its costumed party-goers, oversized piñatas filled with grownup goodies, spontaneous champagne showers, surprise performances, confetti explosions, wild bottle presentations, gorgeous go-go dancers and unabashed variety of brews and spirits – everything from brown bagged 40s to an oversized group shot-ski.
