There’s quite a bit going on at Harrah’s Las Vegas, including the recent debut of a new casino bar and a new food court, the Fulton Street Food Hall.
There’s a construction wall where Ming’s Table restaurant and The Cafe at Harrah’s used to be. We miss Italian Night at the cafe, but it’s time for some Las Vegas newness.
The new Fulton Street Food Hall is set to debut September 15, 2014.
Harrah’s Las Vegas, of course, has a New Orleans theme, so this new food court (sorry, “hall”) has been named after an entertainment district in “The Big Easy.”
As evidenced by our security breach, below, there’s still a lot of work to be done at Fulton Street Food Hall. Then again, Las Vegas hotels seem to make magic happen when it comes to opening restaurants, so we don’t doubt they’ll hit their target date.
The construction wall around the new food court provides some interesting renderings of what’s to come. First and foremost, there will be a new bar! It will be open 24 hours a day.
In addition to the bar, the new food court will offer a sushi and noodle bar, pizza, comfort foods, sandwiches, soups, salads, frozen yogurt and coffee and bakery (open 24 hours).
From what we can see, the new Fulton Street Food Hall will have a lot of the same elements of a Las Vegas buffet, which begs the question: Does Harrah’s need both the Fulton Street Food Hall and its long-in-the-tooth Flavors buffet?
Here are more renderings of the Fulton Street Food Hall so we can move on to the new casino bar at Harrah’s, already.

A construction wall marks the demise of the Party Time Bar at Harrah’s.
Weep not for the loss of the Party Time Bar, however. Harrah’s has a brand new bar! It’s not just new and shiny, it’s much bigger than the previous casino bar and has more TVs and video poker.
The new bar, which employees told us is called Center Bar, but which we’ve also seen referred to as Signature Bar, is sort of in a “V” shape, making it easily accessible from most parts of the casino at Harrah’s.
We counted about 25 video poker games along the length of the new Harrah’s casino bar, as well as a robust selection of beers. (We actually didn’t notice anything special about the beers. We just like using the word “robust.”)
In addition to the new food court and casino bar, it’s also worth noting comedian Rita Rudner returns to Harrah’s starting Sep. 17, 2014. She’ll appear Wednesdays and Saturdays. The Vegas fixture’s last residency at Harrah’s lasted four years, from 2006 to 2010, and she most recently appeared at the Venetian.
Kudos to Harrah’s Las Vegas for shaking things up with some new offerings, and we look forward to doing some damage at the bars, both to those currently in existence as well as those yet to be.
