Red Rock preparing for Durango Casino’s grand opening on November 20, 2023
The opening date of the Durango Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas is not very far as NASDAQ-listed casino operator Red Rock Resorts Inc. is targeting 20th of November as the grand opening date for the new gambling-friendly property. To be opened under the Station Casinos brand, the Durango Hotel & Casino project was commenced last year with an estimated cost of $750 million and it was topped off in October last year.
After the announcement of the scheduled grand opening, the recently tested external lighting & signage at the venue started shining. However, the regulatory approval for the new property is still pending. If it obtains the regulatory approval, the opening will be held a couple of days after the upcoming Formula One Grand Prix. It means that the city will already be jam-packed with tourists.
David Horn, a General Manager (GM) and Vice President (VP) of Durango Hotel & Casino, said in a statement that he and his team members were very excited about the upcoming opening of the property.
The new hotel-casino is situated close to the 215 Beltway. In addition to a spacious casino, the property will offer 200 well-furnished hotel rooms, space for huge conventions and meetings, a swimming pool and space for outdoor social gatherings. Parking facility will be totally free for all guests. It will be the only unrestricted gaming property in a radius of five miles around it in the Las Vegas Valley. Red Rock believes that the new property will be very successful, thanks to its location in an area of Las Vegas that isn’t densely populated with gambling-friendly venues.
A statement released by Red Rock reads, “The state-of-the-art resort will feature over 200 hotel rooms, convention & meeting spaces, a resort pool with cabanas, outdoor social areas, and free parking. Durango will offer locals & visitors a best-in-class resort boasting 15 restaurants, including 4 signature outlets and a food hall set in a dynamic casino environment.”
The gaming floor or casino of the property will span 73,000 square feet, and it will offer 2,000 gaming machines, 40 gaming tables, and a state-of-the-art sportsbook.
A number of market analysts, including Stifel’s Steven Wieczynski, are quite optimistic that the Durango Hotel & Casino will prove to be a catalyst to the local economy by generating new jobs for people in addition to a new stream of tax revenue for the government.
