LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Palms resort and casino is already celebrating its grand opening.
The doors officially open on Wednesday, April 27 at 9:00 p.m. Hotel guest stays will be available the following day.
On Wednesday afternoon the festivities kicked off with a special tribal drum ceremony and a ribbon cutting.
The property was purchased in May of 2021 after Red Rock Resorts sold the 703-room Palms to the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians in a $650 million cash deal.
It will be the first Native-American-owned casino in Las Vegas.
1400 jobs have been created at the resort and about 50% of the hires are former employees, according to the Palms.
The Palms will celebrate the opening with a fireworks show on opening night just before 11 p.m.
