Rain Nightclub at Palms Casino to close Sunday

CREATED Oct. 22, 2012

 LAS VEGAS (AP) -- A popular Las Vegas nightclub that opened with the Palms Casino Resort in 2001 is going dark.

The casino and 9Group announced Monday that Rain Nightclub will close early Sunday to make way for a multi-million dollar renovation.

9Group spokeswoman Ashli Kimenker tells The Associated Press that about 50 employees are being notified that Saturday will be the last night partying at the three-story venue at the Palms, just west of the Las Vegas Strip.
Kimenker says the 25,000-square facility will host special events in coming weeks including New Year's Eve weekend performances by Kelly Rowland and Travis Barker.
Renovations begin next year.
The Rain announcement follows the closure in June of the Playboy Club at the Palms -- also to allow space for renovations.
New tenants haven't been identified.
