Park MGM Could Reopen on the Las Vegas Strip on October 1

It all depends on the newly reopened Mirage hitting its targets

Park MGM, the final resort in the MGM Resorts family of casinos that remains closed, could open as soon as October 1. CEO Bill Hornbuckle tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that NoMad Hotel inside the Park MGM could reopen separately.

The resort in the center of the Strip hosts Eataly at the front with its Italian steakhouse Manzo, as well as chef Roy Choi’s Best Friend, Bavette’s Steakhouse & Bar, La La Noodle, Primrose, and NoMad Restaurant and NoMad Bar at NoMad Hotel. Other closed nightlife venues include On The Record, Mama Rabbit with its collection of mezcal and tequila, and Juniper Cocktail Lounge with a wide range of gin on the menu. The Crack Shack at the front of the resort reopened on August 1.

All closed in March when Gov. Steve Sisolak ordered all nonessential businesses including casinos to shut down to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Casinos reopened on June 4, but MGM Resorts took a slow approach to bringing back its resorts, only opening the Bellagio, New York-New York, and MGM Grand and its neighboring Signature that day. Other properties, including Excalibur, Mandalay Bay, Vdara, Aria, and Luxor, slowly reopened over the summer, with the Mirage coming back on August 27.

Hornbuckle tells the RJ that the opening of the Park MGM depends on whether the Mirage “hits its numbers in September.”

He notes that the Park Theater, which hosted headliners such as Lady Gaga, Cher, Bruno Mars, and Aerosmith, remaining closed presents its own challenge since visitors came to see a show.
