The Plaza Hotel & Casino held an official ribbon cutting ceremony on June 8 to celebrate the grand opening of its Main Street Reimagination projects that transformed its historic Main Street façade and porte-cochère into a one-of-a-kind destination for cocktails, gaming, and dining with four new venues. The re-imagined venues include Carousel Bar, Pinkbox Doughnuts, the rooftop patio at Oscar’s steakhouse, and Brian Christopher Slots at Plaza, downtown’s only smokefree and social media friendly gaming space, which will all officially open to the public on Saturday, June 10.
Plaza Hotel & Casino CEO Jonathan Jossel cut the commemorative ribbon at the project’s centerpiece Carousel Bar, alongside city of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman, former Mayor Oscar Goodman, leading gaming social media influencer Brian Christopher, and Judith Perez Siegel, owner of Pinkbox Doughnuts and Michael Crandall, chief business officer of Pinkbox Doughnuts.
“For more than 50 years, the Plaza has called 1 Main Street home,” said Jossel. “Main Street is where Las Vegas got its start, and the Plaza continues to enhance this historic and exciting thoroughfare. Last year, we opened the legendary live music venue Sand Dollar Downtown. Today, we further establish Main Street as a premier downtown destination with the addition of Carousel Bar, Pinkbox Doughnuts, Brian Christopher Slots at Plaza, and a rooftop patio overlooking it all at Oscar’s steakhouse.”
Jossel thanked city of Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and her husband, former Las Vegas Mayor and steakhouse namesake, Oscar Goodman for their continued support of the Plaza and downtown redevelopment. He also recognized Judith Perez Siegel, Michael Crandall, and Brian Christopher for partnering with the Plaza. Jossel added that the Plaza’s evolution and improvements, including these four projects, wouldn’t be possible without the vision of the property’s owner, Poju Zabludowicz, chairman and CEO of Tamares Group.
