Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Bill's Gamblin' Hall & Saloon closed on Monday to undergo a massive renovation. When it reopens in several months, it will have a new look and a new name.
Before it was Bill's, it was the Barbary Coast.
An icon on the Strip for several years, many Action News Facebook fans recall times spent at Bill's and the Barbary Coast.
