Today, Plaza Hotel & Casino hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of the new main entrance makeover and the opening of Pinkbox Doughnuts, Carousel Bar, Oscar’s rooftop patio, and Brian Christopher Slots at Plaza, downtown’s first smoke-free, social media friendly gaming space. All venues will officially open to the public on June 10.

The Plaza transformed the space under the hotel’s iconic dome into the 2,500-square-foot Carousel Bar, an outdoor bar experience featuring carousel horses moving up and down, a martini glass with a spinning olive, an oversized deck of cards, a 14-foot-tall neon showgirl sign, and a rotating ribbon of lights above the bar. The bar includes Vegas’ only outdoor video poker machines and an outdoor cooling system.

Adjacent to the Carousel Bar is Pinkbox Doughnuts’ first location in downtown Las Vegas. The 1,200-square-foot store features a 12-foot-tall 3D doughnut with sprinkles at the entrance. A glass display case shows the franchise’s full line of more than 70 doughnuts.

On the other side of the Carousel Bar is downtown’s first smoke-free and social media friendly gaming space, Brian Christopher Slots at Plaza. The new gaming space expands the popular social media influencer’s presence at the Plaza by 5X, from the original 16 slot machines to an expansive 2,500 square feet with 75 of the industry’s latest games for guests 21 and older. The space also supports social media posting by offering backdrops for selfies and group shots as well as the ability to play only copyright friendly songs that can be posted on social platforms.

Oscar’s rooftop patio is above the new gaming space and accessible via the restaurant’s existing lounge. The space can accommodate approximately 225 people and offers the restaurant’s full dinner menu in addition to its extensive wine and cocktail lists. The patio has great views of downtown, including Carousel Bar and the lights and action on Fremont and Main Streets.
