The Plaza Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas on Tuesday unveiled plans for a remodeled Main Street facade. 

The new plans include a moving Carousel Bar under the property's porte-cochère, a rooftop patio at Oscar's steakhouse, the addition of a Pinkbox Doughnuts location, as well as a smoke-free gaming area.

The bar will include carousel horses that move up and down, spinning martini glasses and a rotating ribbon of lights above the bar, according to a media release from the property. The outdoor bar will seat 100 guests.

"Like our neighbors and city leaders, we have been committed to revitalizing downtown Las Vegas into a destination known for great art, dining, culture, hospitality, and entertainment," said CEO Jonathan Jossel. "Today, we unveil plans to further these efforts and transform Main Street into an unforgettable and must-visit place in Las Vegas for food, drinks, and gaming.”

The 2,500 sq. ft. smoke-free gaming area will be for guests 21 and older and styled like the Plaza's Studio 71 photo space. The area will be social media-friendly, as well, "playing only copyright friendly songs that can be posted on social platforms."

The property recently opened the Sand Dollar Downtown, an extension of the rock club on Spring Mountain Road.

Construction is set to begin later this month and are expected to be completed by the end of the year.
