Final Las Vegas Strip resort reopens as adults-only property following coronavirus closures

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The last Las Vegas Strip resort — still shuttered by the coronavirus closures — reopened Thursday morning and it will be an adults-only property.

The Cromwell Las Vegas greeted visitors once again when the doors opening at 10 a.m. It had been closed since mid-March.

The reopening also meant that 350 workers got their jobs back. The general manager said more positions will be filled as demand picks up.

The Cromwell is owned by Caesars Entertainment and prior to 2014 was known as Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall. The building was built in 1979 and opened as the Barbary Coast.

Like other Caesars resorts, the Cromwell opened with new safety measures and forced social distancing.

It’s one of the smaller properties on the Strip with only 188 rooms and a 40,000 square foot casino. The property is known for its roof top pool complex and the nightclub Drai’s.    

While gaming properties were allowed to reopen in early June, the Cromwell remained closed. During part of that time, it was used as a home base for the CBS reality dating show Love Island.

Some of the off-Strip resorts such as the Palms and the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino remain closed with no reopening dates posted.
