Virgin Hotels Las Vegas owner Richard “Boz” Bosworth announced Thursday that the highly-anticipated casino and resort will make its debut on Mar. 25. While the development has faced several delays over the past few months, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas appears to be in its home stretch. This news comes in the wake of What Now Las Vegas’s coverage on the delays last week.
“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,” Bosworth said in a press release. “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 130,000 square feet resort will feature the Mohegan Sun Casino, four expansive outdoor pools, several live entertainment venues and an array of popular restaurant concepts. Tourists and locals alike will soon be able to grab dessert from California-based Afters Ice Cream, or dine at Chef Todd English’s restaurant Olives.
Overseeing the hotel’s own culinary concepts will be Chef David Werly, who has previously directed kitchens in Bellagio and Mandarin Oriental. While at Bellagio, Werly received and maintained a Michelin Star for three years.
Virgin Hotels’ new restaurants, including The Kitchen and The Bar at Commons Club, will debut alongside the resort this March. The “reimagined and reconceptualized casino resort,” as the project is described on its website, will open one mile east of the Strip at 4455 Paradise Rd., near the University District.
