The Palazzo announced it would remove the 40/40 Club in order to install a full-scale race and sports book.

The restaurant/nightclub is expected to close later this month, with the sports book earmarked to open in October or November.

The race and sports book, which will occupy about 25,000 square feet, will also include a restaurant.

Currently, the Palazzo operates a small sports window that is an extension of the sports book at the Venetian, its sister property.

"By adding a complete gaming component ... we will be able to create a very unique environment for our guests," Palazzo President Rob Goldstein said in a statement.

The race and sports book will be located one floor below the Palazzo lobby, and accessible at to walk-in traffic off the Strip.
