Virgin Reveals Its Rejuvenated Opening

The construction walls are down outside Virgin, and we’ve got a peek at what’s in store when the new resort opens at 6:00 p.m. on March 25, 2021.

The fence came down sans hoopla, now those anxiously awaiting the debut of Virgin can get a clear look at how far the casino has come since it was Hard Rock.

It’s all fun and games until somebody puts an eye out.

Virgin’s signage is going full bore, promoting its new offerings and touting the fact the resort will open with no resort fees.

Virgin no resort fees

One of the greatest phrases ever invented: No resort fees.

Here’s another pic of the shiny new porte-cochere (fancy talk for driveway) at Virgin Las Vegas. Technically, Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Which is awkward, but we’re so excited about having a new casino in Las Vegas, we’ll give it a pass.

Rumor has it spaces in the parking lot won’t be numbered, but lettered. Good luck finding the G spot.

One more shot of the Virgin entrance for posterity. We suspect it’s the last time the surface parking lot will be empty at Virgin.

Fun game: Find the suspicious security guard.

The only other thing we’d add is Virgin Las Vegas is really close to the airport (at the corner of Harmon and Paradise).

The planes fly so close, you can almost reach up and scratch their bellies. Or something.

Just spit-balling here, but Virgin should sell “flight path view” room upgrades for all the aviation nerds.

The opening of Virgin Las Vegas is close at hand, and we can wait to get inside her.

    Why Circa was able to create such an energetic environment appealing to us GenXers while the guys at Virgin just pulled together this clusterfuck of color nonsense? Seriously,so far the hotel looks better on the outside.

    Dude…I love your site, but you do need to spell check your headlines. “Rejuvenated”. Otherwise you blend in with foreign clickbait.

    Your last picture illustrates a feature of Virgin that was the same at Hard Rock. When McCarran is landing West, every now and then a plane goes by–almost at eye level, if you’re in an upper-floor room.

    So glad you included a link to see the interiors, which I somehow missed, before. Interesting that guys, or younger guys, are repelled by the wild sixties interior design. I love it; had enough of the current designs that seem all the same, lack personality. Or maybe because I’m just old enough to remember when wild was In. You mentioned Virgin particularly expects female travelers. So possibly the style was chosen to appeal to women.

      Spot on right there. That place will cater to my parents,both in their mid seventies. I was born in ’73 and that look to me is like when millenials today watch Snoop Dogg and its Compton gasngsta crap. Even outside the place looks like a West Palm Beach/Arizona kind of thing.
      Brits and Europeans will like it tho.
