Caesars Entertainment announced Tuesday the completion of a multimillion-dollar renovation of the original main entrance, casino dome and porte-cochère at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. The redesigned space includes a dramatic entryway with a coffered ceiling, refreshed gaming areas and the new Galleria Bar in the hotel lobby.
After raising the roof of the entryway to match the hotel lobby, guests arriving at Caesars Palace now enter a “beautifully lit space, with a coffered ceiling and an intricate marble mosaic floor,” the gaming giant described.
A 15-foot-tall Carrara marble statue of Augustus Caesar welcomes visitors under the raised ceiling, which features hand-painted illustrations of Roman gods and a chandelier containing 70,000 crystals.
We are thrilled to announce the completion of our multimillion-dollar main entrance, iconic casino dome & porte-cochère. The redesigned space includes a dramatic entryway, refreshed gaming areas and the new Galleria Bar in the hotel lobby.

— Caesars Palace (@CaesarsPalace) September 21, 2022 Sean McBurney, Caesars Entertainment Regional President, explained: “Since Caesars Palace opened its doors in 1966, we have been inspired by founder Jay Sarno’s promise to treat every guest like a Caesar.”
“From the moment visitors arrive, we aim to deliver experiences that can only be found at our flagship resort. The extravagant entryway is the first of several new additions to Caesars Palace, with Peter Luger Steakhouse, Dominique Ansel Las Vegas, Stanton Social Prime and more to come soon.”
Beyond the entryway, guests will find two new state-of-the-art gaming pits. Additionally, Caesars Palace’s crystal-cloaked casino dome now boasts a new, larger crystal chandelier that weighs approximately 3,200 pounds and is composed of 12,000 individual crystals. The linear rays that radiate from the chandelier contain approximately 120,000 additional crystals.
With more than $1 million in crystals, brighter, energy-efficient LED lighting and reimagined carpet, wall and ceiling coverings, the domed gaming area “is everything guests loved about the iconic original with a modern twist.”
Another welcome addition, Galleria Bar in the hotel lobby allows guests to enjoy a cocktail as they await check-in, offering 24 seats and 22 multi-game slot machines. With a modern take on a palatial Italian study, the new bar features four life-size Venus sculptures and a backdrop of antique mirrors, cerused wood with antique gold accents and Italian inlaid wood murals.
Galleria Bar guests can also enjoy signature cocktails and vino by the glass from the Coravin wine preservation system, including the red blend from Overture by Opus One, pinot noir from RAEN and cabernet sauvignon from Beaulieu Vineyard BV Rutherford Reserve. Open 24 hours a day, Galleria Bar is in the Caesars Palace hotel lobby between the main entryway and the entrance to the outdoor Roman Plaza.
