El Cortez Hotel & Casino Outlines $20m Expansion Project

Adding two new bars, a high-limit lounge, and a new restaurant to its casino floor is part of the significant renovations that the historic El Cortez Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas is getting ready for. An enormous sum of money will be spent on reviving one of Vegas’ historic landmarks with this ambitious $20 million property-wide extension.

Expressing his excitement for the project, Kenny Epstein, Chairman and CEO of El Cortez Hotel & Casino, emphasized the importance of these enhancements in meeting the surging demand from locals and visitors alike. He stated, “We are thrilled to unveil our latest expansion project, which represents a significant milestone for El Cortez and the community of downtown Vegas.”

Design and Construction

Led by McCarthy Building Companies, Ike Gaming, Jive Architecture, and Kenneth Ussenko Design, the project aims to expand the casino floor by 10,000 square feet while renovating an additional 4,000 square feet. The introduction of a new high-limit lounge seeks to provide patrons with a secluded space away from the bustling casino floor, enhancing their gaming experience.

As part of the expansion, two new bars, including a roulette bar and a show bar, are set to grace the premises, offering guests a variety of entertainment options. Christopher Knotz, Partner at Jive Architecture, expressed his team’s honor in contributing to El Cortez’s bright future, recognizing its storied legacy in Las Vegas.

McCarthy Building Companies Senior Vice President Ross Edwards reaffirmed the company’s dedication to carrying out this large-scale project to the highest standard. Emphasizing the importance of the investment for downtown Vegas and the El Cortez Hotel & Casino, he made sure that every customer had a flawless experience.
