Wynn Las Vegas plans to reopen almost every restaurant and lounge at its two hotel towers on Thursday, June 4, when casinos statewide can allow customers to return.
Both hotel towers and the casino as well as all restaurants will reopen on June 4, followed by the resort’s newest restaurant, Elio, opening later in the month in Encore Las Vegas.
Wynn already plans to open five restaurants this Friday, including the Italian Allegro, three-meal Jardin, seafood-forward Lakeside, Japanese Mizumi, and SW Steakhouse. Those restaurants are offering three-course menus and shortened hours to welcome diners back.
Elio, the Mexican restaurant from Enrique Olvera, Daniela Soto-Innes, and Santiago Perez of ATM Group, planned to open on March 19, and then Gov. Steve Sisolak closed all nonessential businesses including casinos, restaurants, and bars, on March 17, putting the opening on hold. The hospitality company already has Cosme and Atla in New York City and Pujol in Mexico City, and plans to serve a menu of Mexican fare that combines regional dishes and seasonal ingredients. The menu focuses on small plates and appetizers, seafood and produce, and shareable entrees. The bar and lounge in turn features agave-based spirits.
XS Nightclub and Encore Beach Club remain closed. The Nevada Gaming Control Board said that nightclubs and pool parties cannot reopen.
“We are ready to provide our guests with a full Las Vegas experience with a collection of luxury amenities and unmatched service,” Wynn Resorts CEO Matt Maddox said in a press statement. “At the same time, our extensive health and safety plan, validated by the nation’s leading public health experts, will enable a safe environment for our guests. The entire Wynn team is looking forward to welcoming our guests back.”
Both hotels, 24-hour casinos, pools, golf course, retail stores at its three shopping experiences, salons, spas, and fitness center reopen as well.
Wynn was one of the first resorts to release a comprehensive health and safety plan that includes thermal cameras that would alert staff when someone enters the resort with a temperature over 100 degrees F. Those guests and employees would be directed to take a secondary temperature reading, will not be allowed to enter the resort and instead directed to appropriate medical care.
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.
