On November 24, Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered all restaurants and bars, both inside casinos and independent operators, to reduce occupancy from 50 percent to 25 percent for at least three weeks to reduce the spread of COVID-19. Now, restaurants and bars who see these new measures as crippling are temporarily closing in an effort to save funds until next year when the coronavirus case rate may be under control.
The state has limited indoor and outdoor dining to 25 percent capacity with a maximum of four people per tables. Casinos also must reduce capacity to 25 percent, putting a strain on Vegas’s already slumping gaming industry. In addition, customers need to make a reservation for on-site dining, with the exception of fast food restaurants and open food courts.
Here, a look at the restaurants and bars that temporarily closed.
