The Plaza Hotel & Casino will celebrate its one-year anniversary with a special Pool Nights Fourth of July party on Saturday, July 1, with live entertainment, drink specials, and a barbecue buffet.
The festivities will culminate with a fireworks show lighting up the downtown skyline. This summer the Pool Nights feature dance and swim parties held under the stars on Saturdays.
The July 1 party will be the biggest yet this season. There will be music throughout the day at the pool, and in the evening guests will enjoy live entertainment from Flashbax, an 80’s tribute band.
Beginning at 7 p.m., the cocktail bar will offer a holiday drink special. Guests can buy-one-get-one-free of the special Firework cocktail (comprised of strawberry daiquiri, pina colada rum and blueberry lemonade vodka), which is on the pool bar menu for $10. The pool bar will also offer a selection of frozen and specialty cocktails as well as beer and wine.
On the pool deck, there will be a special barbecue buffet with all-American favorites like baked beans, cornbread, watermelon, BBQ chicken, ribs, brisket, corn, roasted red potatoes, salad and apple pie. The buffet is all-you-can-eat for $25 per person.
At the end of the night, there will be live fireworks from multiple rooftop locations at approximately 10:45 p.m. The show will last about four minutes, and while the best views will be from the rooftop pool party, the fireworks will no doubt be seen in the sky for miles around. Entry for the special July 1 event is free. Guests must be 21 years of age or older.
The downtown Henderson casino is celebrating its 55th anniversary on July 1 with free cake and champagne at 6 p.m. July 1-7, the casino will host Hot Seat Drawings with three winners each night of $55 cash at 5:55, 6:55 and 7:55 p.m. In Bingo, July 1-7, one lucky winner player will win $55 in slot dollars at the 5 p.m. sessions daily.
