Main Street Station, one of the last casinos that did not reopen in Downtown Las Vegas, gets ready to return to business with two dining options, including a buffet. The hotel reopens on Wednesday, September 8, at 6 a.m.
The all-you-can-eat Garden Court Buffet reopens daily with brunch from 8 a.m. and 2 p.m., as well as dinner on Friday and Saturday from 4 to 9 p.m.
Also returning, Triple 7 Restaurant & Microbrewery on Thursday through Monday from 5 p.m. to midnight.
The casino with its Victorian-era decor that features rare antiques and historical vintage items, including a slab of the Berlin Wall returns to 24-hours of gaming on its 27,000-square-foot casino floor as well.
Main Street Station closed last year in March when the state ordered nonessential businesses including casinos to shut down to slow the spread of COVID-19. On June 4, 2020, the state allowed casinos to reopen at 50 percent capacity, but parent company Boyd Gaming opted to keep Main Street Station closed as it awaited higher tourism numbers. The resort and neighboring Cal cater to Hawaiian tourists and well as Downtown visitors.
During an earnings call in July, Josh Hirsburg, Boyd’s executive vice president and chief financial officer, said the odds of Main Street Station reopening were better than the Eastside Cannery, which remains closed. “I think we are in the process of making plans to potentially reopen Main Street Station downtown based on growing demand for our product there.”
