The D Las Vegas and Golden Gate Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas have reopened to the public, making the two properties amongst the first casinos to resume gaming operations in Nevada.
“As with the rest of the world, the past few months have presented our city with an unprecedented challenge, and our team has worked around the clock to bring back the Vegas experience our visitors know and love,” said Derek Stevens, owner and CEO of the two properties in a press statement. “We are excited to get our employees back to work and to welcome guests to the entertainment capital of the world.”
The re-openings of the D and Golden Gate come a week after Stevens launched his “Keep America Flying” promotion, which offered 2,000 free Las Vegas-bound flights to travelers across the country. After the first 1,000 flights were booked in less than two hours, Stevens launched phase two of the nationwide giveaway by adding an additional 1,000 flights. The initiative was created to reignite tourism to Las Vegas and support the airline industry.
To make up for lost time, guests who may have missed their birthday celebrations due to the shutdown can request a free bottle of Tito’s Handmade Vodka with a room reservation at the D or Golden Gate through the month of June.
The D Las Vegas offers 629 rooms and suites, as well as a two-story casino. Other features include LONGBAR, a sports hub and the longest bar in Nevada; the only Sigma Derby horse racing game in Las Vegas; the recently debuted Circa Sports book; and new hockey-centric bar, BarCanada.
The Golden Gate Hotel & Casino originally opened in 1906 at One Fremont Street and is Downtown Las Vegas’ most historic hotel. Visitors can retreat to one of Golden Gate’s “Original 10” rooms, which have been maintained for 114 years, or relive the Rat Pack era with a stop at Bar Prohibition!, which is located in the exact same spot where Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. used to drink.
D Grill at the D, as well as bell and valet services for both properties will remain closed until further notice.
