Las Vegas continues to open up after dealing with the coronavirus pandemic for a year. Capacity in casinos is now up to 50%. Restaurants and bars can now seat up to 50% of the listed capacity. While there’s a limit to how many people can attend large gatherings, venues may submit plans to offer seats for up to 50% capacity. More shows are opening and the Vegas Golden Knights are allowing fans to attend games. Even dayclubs and nightclubs are opening for warmer days and more fun nights. Most importantly, more casinos are reopening operations all day, every day.
Las Vegas isn’t entirely back but it’s getting closer. Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak has May 1 as a target date for the state to announce new restrictions. The next wave of coronavirus capacity limits should be announced by local municipalities. Keep your eyes peeled. Here are some of the most recent reopening announcements
Planet Hollywood and The Linq Reopening For 24/7 Operations
Planet Hollywood is now open for service seven days a week. The Linq Hotel reopened its hotel for seven days a week beginning March 22. Previously, both of these hotels were only open for weekend stays. The casino floors at both properties have been operating 24/7 since the properties reopened late last year.
“We are excited to welcome even more guests back to two of our popular resorts seven days a week,” said Sean McBurney, Regional President of Las Vegas Operations for Caesars Entertainment. “With Governor Sisolak’s recent announcement, we are encouraged Las Vegas will continue to rebound beyond expectations. Spring break, the big college basketball tournament, pool season and more are around the corner, and we can’t wait to see more friendly faces on the casino floor.”
Not everything will be open all day and night at the casinos. Here’s a look at what else is also open seven days a week at Planet Hollywood. The food and beverage options may change over time. Just to be safe, you might want to check the Planet Hollywood website before making plans.

Hakkasan Partial Reopening
Dayclubs and nightclubs are reopening with a different atmosphere. They’re both places to party. However, partying is a bit different. Guests will not be encouraged to mix and mingle. Social distancing doesn’t allow for everyone to get up close with one another. However, groups of people can still enjoy the fun together.
Omnia at Caesars Palace partially reopened in early March. Guests can have a fun and relaxing hang outside on the terrace on Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 p.m. The club says everyone should make reservations before visiting.
Hakkasan at MGM Grand will be slowly reopening on March 26. Only the third level of Omnia is reopening. This space will act as a lounge. There will be a vibe but it won’t be quite the same as a night where Tiesto is performing.
General admission isn’t allowed so everyone must make a reservation in advance. Hakkasan is also only reopening on Friday and Saturday. You can make reservations from 10:30 p.m.
