Formerly the Cherry Pool, the Red Rock Cabana Club will resume operations next to the existing Red Rock Resort Pool early this May, with pool parties open to the public Saturdays and Sundays.
The neighboring Cherry Nightclub shut its doors January 3 after four years of operation by nightlife impresario Rande Gerber's Midnight Oil company, then later by Station Casinos itself. A new concept is expected to take Cherry's place, though no timeline has been set.
Live DJs once again will grace the Cabana Club decks, bangin' out the tunes for the pool deck's cabanas and daybeds beneath the swaying palms; reservations are welcomed at 702-797-7180. The popular Red Rock Retreat industry sleepover series, however, will not be returning with the 2010 pool season.
Red Rock Casino also will welcome Vegas' second Yard House installation Sunday, June 6 in the former Salt Lick Barbeque location.
Situated at the entrance to Red Rock Canyon and minutes from the world-renowned Las Vegas Strip, Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa offers five-star luxury in a modern property, built in 2006.
The casino features features 3,000 slot and video poker machines, 60 table games including blackjack, baccarat, craps, poker, roulette, a 206-seat Race and Sports Book with a 96-foot video wall a 20-table smoke-free poker room open 24 hours a day, a 600-seat bingo hall with separate smoking and non-smoking sections, open 7 days a week with sessions running every other hour from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m., a 20-seat keno lounge and a private high-limit room.
A recipient of the AAA Four Diamond Award since opening and named one of the world's best new hotels by Conde Nast Traveler magazine, Red Rock redefines casino resort architecture by incorporating natural light, a convenient layout and the comforts of a modern lifestyle.
The centerpiece of the property is the three-acre pool complex with 19 cabanas and swim-up gaming. Its location allows for balcony views from several of the property's restaurants and Cherry Nightclub. Aside from Cherry, guests can grab a drink at Onyx or Lucky or listen to live music in Rocks Lounge.
Dining spans the globe at Red Rock with more than 10 restaurants, including the Italian food of Terra Rossa, the Japanese fusion of Hachi, the Mexican spices at Cabo Cantina or a bit of everything at the Feast Buffet.
Unlike some resorts in town, Red Rock has activities for the whole family, such as a 16-screen movie theater and an arcade. The 72-lane bowling center features a VIP area and carpet that glows in the dark for after hours at Cosmic Bowling.
