Virgin Hotels again pushes back its opening, citing the coronavirus pandemic.
“This decision was predicated on the current conditions in the market as it pertains to the pandemic,” Richard “Boz” Bosworth, president and CEO of JC Hospitality, owner of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, says in a statement to the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “While the entire team at JC Hospitality is beyond excited to introduce the reimagined resort casino to locals and tourists alike, the safety and health of our guests, partners and team members continues to be our top priority.”
Originally the resort that is in the midst of renovating the former Hard Rock Hotel planned to open in early November, and then pushed that date back to January 15, 2021. So far, Virgin Hotels has not issued a new opening date.
Once the hotel and casino opens, it plans to feature the return of Todd English’s Olives, Kris Yenbamroong’s Los Angeles Thai gem Night + Market, the legendary sushi restaurant Nobu, Michael and David Morton’s One Steakhouse, Kassi Beach Club from restaurateur Nick Mathers, Casa Calavera by Hakkasan Group, as well as the sports entertainment, daylife, and nightlife venue Money, Baby! from Clive Collective. Other outlets include Afters Ice Cream, Pizza Forte by the Ferraro family, and Virgin Hotels restaurants and bars including The Kitchen at Commons Club, The Bar at Commons Club, The Shag Room at Commons Club, and Funny Library Coffee Shop.
