Barbary Coast to Change Name to Bills Gamblin Hall and Saloon

Nevada Gaming Commission regulators approved the swap of Boyd Gaming's Barbary Coast in exchange for the former Westward Ho! site owned by Harrah's. Under the deal, Barbary Coast will close for 2 days to change its name to Bill's Gamblin Hall and Saloon, a nod to William Harrah, founder of the Harrah's empire. Harrah's also owns Bill's Casino in Lake Tahoe, a teeny tiny joint about the size of El Cortez.

While this move was completely expected, the fact that Harrah's will take the time to rename and re-brand the joint makes one think that the full on Barbary Coast to Harrah's redevelopment project, currently in flux due to Harrah's going private, is very seriously in doubt - if not shelved indefinitely. Why would Harrah's spend the money and time renaming and rebranding the joint if its days are numbered?

Either way... sayonara Barbary Coast - you've treated us well.
