The Palms has been the source for plenty of nightlife speculation and anticipation since Red Rock Resorts, parent company of Station Casinos, acquired the off-Strip resort in 2016. Now Vegas visitors and locals have a clearer picture of what the new Palms is going to look like: Tao Group and Clique Hospitality will partner with the resort to create new clubs, restaurants and lounges, and chefs Bobby Flay, Michael Symon and Marc Vetri are working on new dining spots, too.

“The Tao Group is excited to be part of the greatest nightlife and daylife team ever assembled in Las Vegas as we partner with Red Rock Resorts on the Palms project,” Tao Group partner Noah Tepperberg said in a press statement. “We are eager to share the fresh and innovative dayclub, nightclub and dining concepts being introduced at what will be the largest dance music venue in Las Vegas. With over 100,000 square feet, we are gearing up to once again raise the bar on the entire hospitality experience by providing something that is truly a one stop shop for a full weekend of varying food, beverage and live entertainment.”

“Opening in the Palms, the epicenter of Las Vegas pop culture, marks a true milestone in our expansion into the world’s most exciting and vibrant destinations,” Clique founder Andy Masi said in a separate statement. “When you think about Las Vegas, few places are more iconic than the Palms. My team and I are looking forward to add to the history and the lore while still offering guests incredible experiences and the opportunity to make some new memories.”

“Vegas won’t know what hit it when the Palms debuts their new look,” added Symon, who will create his first-ever Vegas project. “I truly feel it will become the premier dining and nightlife spot in all of Vegas. The team at Red Rock Resorts is top notch, and we’re so psyched to be part of this project. Look out Vegas, here we come!”
