Openings and closings: One club closes, another opens
There's lots happening at the Palms.
A refurbished Ghostbar will offer daytime party fans a place to go this winter, while sports bar/restaurant/nightclub Heraea closed its doors.
Here's a look at some of the restaurants and shops that opened and closed in the valley this week:
Unwind Knitting aims to teach people the fine – and disappearing – art of knitting and crocheting.
The shop inside the Stitch Factory, 300 Las Vegas Blvd. North, Suite 120, Las Vegas, offers classes and open knitting sessions for people who want to collaborate on projects. Open knitting sessions take place Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and cost $10. Beginners' classes run Wednesday and Friday and cost $25 each.
The store also sells a variety of standard and imported yarns.
Atlanta-based Tags Boutique is opening its first West Coast shop at Town Square. The store brands itself as offering affordable women's clothing.
Tags is expected to open in late October, next to the Sweet Bubble Soap Cafe.
Kandi Burruss, star of the reality TV show “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” founded the company with her friend Peaches Chin.
Sammy’s Restaurant, Bar and Grill opened Wednesday at Green Valley Parkway and Pebble Road in Henderson.
Known for its wood-fired pizzas and fusion cuisine, the restaurant will serve its regular menu 24 hours a day. A breakfast menu also is available from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 6 a.m. to noon Sunday.
Sammy's previous location, 4300 E. Sunset Road, closed in August in anticipation of the Green Valley location.
Heraea, the Palms' hybrid sports bar/restaurant/nightclub, closed early last week.
“Palms Casino Resort and Heraea Vegas have decided to end their partnership at Heraea, with Palms taking over management of the space,” casino executives said in a statement. “Palms expects to reopen the restaurant soon. Palms wishes Heraea and The ONE Group the best of luck.”
The two-story restaurant opened in February.
The temperature is dropping, which means day clubs will soon shut down for winter.
The party spot will debut weekly events Oct. 19.
It also has a new look. The club got a facelift as part of a $50 million renovation at the Palms. Upgraded features include new chandeliers and leather banquettes, along with a new cocktail menu featuring Rose champagne and hookah offerings.
Ghostbar will continue to operate as a nightclub, as well.
