The Palms’ Moon Shutters After Nine-Year Run

A nine-year run is like 63 in club years. (Who’s a good club? You’re a good club, yes you are.) Moon has been offering al fresco clubbing since the middle of the Bush administration, but now it’s going to give way to a new concept on the top floor of the Palms’ Fantasy Tower.

Immediately, the space will be available for private functions until a rebranding is complete–with no timetable given for that yet. Rain has been down since October 2012, leaving the updated Ghostbar as the property’s prime nightlife spot, with the pool still in play for the daylife set.

Last August, renderings surfaced showing a concept for a remodeled Rain, as well as a club marked “Alias Jane.” Some of what you see in those renderings suggests it could be the Moon space.

This doesn’t come as a shock–rumors of Moon closing to remodel have been out there for at least two years. Particularly after the adjoining Playboy Club closed in June 2012 to make way for The View last March and since closed two weeks ago.
