The Mirage in Las Vegas will reopen Aug. 27, in time for Labor Day weekend.
Closed because of the pandemic since mid-March, The Mirage will become the latest MGM Resorts property to reopen. Only Park MGM of its Las Vegas portfolio remains closed.
"As we have slowly and thoughtfully reintroduced our properties across the country, we have placed the health and safety of our guests and employees first at all times," said Bill Hornbuckle, MGM Resorts' CEO and president.
In a July 30 earnings call, Hornbuckle said the company's reopened properties are cash-flow positive, with the exception of Mandalay Bay. Occupancy rates are in the 30% range midweek and in the 50% range on weekends, he said.
"We thought it was important to keep the brands alive [by reopening properties] and keep people motivated and excited to come to Las Vegas," Hornbuckle said during the call.
Other major Strip corridor and downtown properties that remain closed with no announced timeline to reopen are: Planet Hollywood, Rio and the Cromwell (owned by Caesars Entertainment); Palms (owned by Red Rock Resorts, parent of Station Casinos) and Main Street Station (owned by Boyd Gaming). Caesars' Linq casino is open, but it is not taking room reservations.
Days and hours of operation at the resort's retail and restaurants will vary, according to a statement about the Mirage's opening. Complimentary self-parking will be available for guests; valet parking will not be operational.
