Oscar Goodman the former Mob Lawyer and former Las Vegas Mayor's Restaurant at the Plaza is a popular downtown hangout. Oscar was an extremely popular mayor and served the maximum amount of time as mayor allowed by Las Vegas laws. Oscar Goodman's Restaurant renovation will be a major part of the Plaza makeover.
At Oscar’s Steakhouse, named for onetime mob attorney and former Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman, a rooftop terrace is being constructed, one offering the dinner menu, wine, cocktails, and views of Main Street, Fremont Street and the Plaza’s glass dome. The terrace will seat about 225 people. No decision has been made about whether the steakhouse’s Beef Booze Broads sign will remain, or be replaced as part of the new construction, though renderings do not show that verbiage on the updated signage. The property’s porte-cochère is being transformed into the outdoor Carousel Bar featuring a life-size carousel and Vegas-themed elements like spinning martini glasses, an oversize deck of cards and rotating ribbons of light above the bar. Carousel also will incorporate the vintage Vegas lights from the dome. The 2,500-square-foot space will accommodate about 100 people.
Pinkbox Doughnuts, with seven Vegas locations (plus truck), is bringing more than 70 flavors plus boozy milkshakes. Folks will enter through a giant pink doughnut. The display case will stretch 16 feet. The fourth project, adjacent to Carousel Bar, is a smoke-free and social media-friendly gaming area with backdrops for selfies and Instagram. Plaza CEO Jonathan Jossel, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman and Oscar Goodman led the announcement. A representative for the Plaza declined to give a cost for the projects, saying only that they were multimillion dollar undertakings. Openings are planned to occur by the end of the year.
