The new Virgin Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas has delayed its opening but now we have an official date of the grand opening which is March 25th. The former Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has been remodeled with a totally new look as the Virgin Hotel & Casino which is now part of the Curio Collection of hotels by Hilton.

The three hotel towers have 1,500 guest rooms there is also 12 food and beverage venues which i will have to check out. The 60,000 square foot casino is being run by Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment a Native American tribe best known as the operators of the huge Mohegan Sun Hotel & Casino on the East Coast.

The resort will also have entertainment venues a 4,500 capacity live music venue as well as the 24 Oxford Showroom which will have room for 650 guests. The capacity numbers are of course maximum which won’t be possible during the current pandemic but for a post pandemic future.

The Virgin Hotel & Casino should do well although I’m not sure how well trying to be healthier in its food options will work in a city known for excess.
