Caesars Entertainment already has an opening date for a third resort on the Las Vegas Strip. Previously, the gaming giant announced plans for Caesars Palace and Flamingo Las Vegas on June 4 when casinos are allowed to reopen in Las Vegas. Now the company plans to open Harrah’s on Friday, June 5, at 11 a.m.
Harrah’s Las Vegas went through a $200 million multi-year resort renovation with refreshed rooms, a remodeled casino floor and hotel lobby, Cake Boss Buddy Valastro’s new restaurant PizzaCake, and the recently remodeled Ruth’s Chris Steak House.
Caesars Palace also announced some of the restaurants it plans to reopen. Gordon Ramsey Hell’s Kitchen will serve dinner only. Other restaurant reopening include Old Homestead Steakhouse, Café Americano, Pronto by Giada, Nobu Restaurant & Lounge, Bobby Flay’s Mesa Grill, Brioche by Guy Savoy, and DiFara Pizza and Smashburger in the food court. Vanderpump Cocktail Garden, Vista Cocktail Lounge, Venus Pool, Spanish Steps Bar, Lobby Bar, Montecristo Cigar Bar, and Starbucks also reopen.
At the Flamingo, X Bar, Bugsy’s Bar, Pizza To Go, Beach Club Resort Pool, and GO Pool reopen.
Caesars plans to open its other Las Vegas properties — the gaming floor at The Linq, Bally’s Las Vegas, The Cromwell, Paris Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort, and the Rio — and dining amenities based on customer demand.
The Nevada Gaming Control Board did issue guidelines to resorts to reopen that include maintaining 50 percent capacity, masks on staff, cleaning protocols, and social distancing throughout the casino.
Gov. Steve Sisolak closed casinos closed on March 17 to curb the spread of COVID-19. While he has permitted some businesses in Nevada, including dine-in restaurants, to reopen on May 9. Casinos across the state reopen on June 4.
