The Linq reopens its casino floor, some restaurants, and the pool on Friday at 11 a.m.
The news follows Caesars Palace, the Flamingo Las Vegas, and The Linq Promenade with its restaurants and retail outlets reopening on June 4 and Harrah’s Las Vegas reopening on June 5.
The hotel and parking garage remain closed at the Linq, but Caesars Entertainment says demand for gaming is high enough to continue opening casinos. “Adding The Linq gaming floor, food and beverage amenities, as well as The Linq pool, in addition to expanded amenities at Caesars Palace and Harrah’s, are the next steps toward resuming normal business operations in Las Vegas,” says Tony Rodio, chief executive officer of Caesars Entertainment, in a press statement.
The return of the Linq brings back Guy Fieri’s Vegas Kitchen & Bar, open Thursday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.; Nook Café, open Friday through Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Hash House A Go Go, open daily, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
For cocktails, Catalyst Bar and Re:Match Bar reopen 24 hours daily. O’Sheas reopens Friday and Saturday from noon to 4 a.m. and Sunday from noon to 8 p.m.
Influence, the pool at The Linq, is open Friday through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Caesars Entertainment has not announced reopening dates for The Cromwell, Bally’s Las Vegas, Planet Hollywood Resort, Paris Las Vegas, and the Rio. The Miracle Mile Shops did reopen at the Planet Hollywood Resort on Tuesday, and Mon Ami Gabi is now serving at Paris Las Vegas.
Gov. Steve Sisolak closed casinos on March 17 to curb the spread of COVID-19. The Nevada Gaming Control Board issued guidelines to resorts to reopen that include maintaining 50 percent capacity, masks on staff, cleaning protocols, and social distancing throughout the casino. Casinos were permitted to reopen across the state on June 4.
