MGM Resorts International plans to open the Bellagio, MGM Grand, and New York-New York resorts on Thursday, June 4, as well as its all-suite, casino-free resort Signature. Only a handful of restaurants and bars reopen at these resorts, with more casinos and restaurants coming online as tourist demand rises.
At the Bellagio, Petrossian Bar in the lobby and Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Prime Steakhouse and Julian Serrano’s Lago reopen with the resort. The casino also plans to reopen the doors at its new The Mayfair Supper Club, which opened before New Year’s Eve with its views of the Fountains at Bellagio.
Also opening at the casino, the Bellagio Conservatory, the fountains out front, the salon, and fitness center.
New York-New York plans to reopen Tom’s Urban for dining, as well as the Big Apple Roller Coaster, Big Apple Arcade, Hershey’s Chocolate World, the pool, and fitness center.
Restaurants at the neighboring The Park will also reopen, but MGM Resorts did not indicate which would be available.
MGM Grand and the Signature also reopen, with Tom Colicchio’s Craftsteak and Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill among the restaurants that will be open for service. The pool, salon, and fitness center also reopen.
Earlier this month, parent company MGM Resorts International released its safety and health protocols, which include masks on staff and encouraged on visitors. Restaurants also plan to use QR codes with menus that diners can access on their phones. Virtual queues will be in place for customers when immediate seating is unavailable. Diners will receive a text message notification when their table is ready.
Gov. Steve Sisolak closed all nonessential businesses including casinos on March 17. Right now, Nevada is in phase one of reopening, with dine-in restaurants, including some within casinos, permitted to reopen with restrictions. On Friday, bars and indoor shopping centers, among other businesses, can reopen with restrictions, and casinos can reopen on June 4.
