Shuttered since March 17, 2020, two Station Casinos resorts have officially applied for “non-operational status” and notified the City of North Las Vegas “there is no known re-opening date at this time.”
Beginning June 4, Texas Station and Fiesta Rancho are seeking to place their “non-restricted gaming, non-restricted gaming liquor and full liquor off-sale business licenses” on-hold for a second year, citing Nevada’s “uncertain economic conditions.” The City of North Las Vegas can approve the mothballing for a maximum of two years in a row.
Sibling venue Fiesta Henderson also remains “temporarily closed and not taking reservations” on Lake Mead Parkway, but Boulder Station, Sunset Station, and Santa Fe Station, Palace Station, Wildfire Gaming, Green Valley Ranch, and Red Rock Resort have all returned to business.
Earlier this month, the Palms, the most upmarket asset in the Stations Casinos’ portfolio, was sold to The San Manuel Band of Mission Indians for $650 million in cash.
The North Las Vegas closures affects venues including the Cabo Lounge, Festival Buffet, Grand Café, La Flor de Michoacan, Fatburger, and an outpost of perennial local’s favorite, Oyster Bar.
Heading to a May 19 meeting, City Council staff are recommending approval for the proposal.
