After delays related to the pandemic, Virgin Hotel Las Vegas announced it will open on March 25, 2021.
Which you’d already have known if: 1) You’d read the headline, 2) You follow us on Twitter.
The news release didn’t provide a time of day the casino will open, but we hear 6:00 p.m. You know we’ll be there!
Anyway, huge news and a big relief for the employees of Virgin Las Vegas, including many staffers who previously worked at Hard Rock Las Vegas.
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas is part of the Curio Collection by Hilton (we have no idea what that is, but Hilton sounds familiar) and the casino will be operated by Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment.
President and CEO of JC Hospitality, owner of Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, Richard “Boz” Bosworth, said, “It has been a journey, but to finally reach this milestone and confidently announce our opening date would not be possible without our incredible partners and construction team. Today we are not only celebrating the fact that we finally get to welcome back guests to the most exciting resort to open in Las Vegas in years, but we also get to bring our team members back to work.”
The off-Strip Virgin Las Vegas will have more than 1,500 rooms (Virgin calls them “chambers” despite our best efforts) and suites.
The resort will feature a five-acre pool complex (you just blew right by a rendering of it), a live entertainment theater and 12 restaurants and bars.
