Casinos in Las Vegas are back up and running! That includes the gambling venues in Downtown Las Vegas, where the D Las Vegas is located. News is now beginning to surface that the dress code at D Las Vegas is changing.
Many are happy to see this change being made. Today, we’re going to look at how the dress code inside this hotel-casino is shifting. We’ll also look more into what this massive venue has to offer its guests.
Let’s get into it!
Most Casinos in Downtown Las Vegas Are Now Open
Nowadays, most people think of the Strip when someone mentions Las Vegas. This isn’t much of a surprise. This small area of the city features a huge number of incredible casino-resorts including The Bellagio, Aria, and The Cosmopolitan.
In March, Governor Steve Sisolak ordered all of Nevada’s casinos to close down. This proved devastating to the local economy. The tourism industry in Las Vegas came to a screeching halt and casinos started losing revenue rapidly.
In early June, many of the casinos on the Las Vegas Strip started to reopen. As time has gone on, more casinos in this city began to open back up. Today, nearly all of the gambling venues in Downtown Las Vegas are accepting guests.
Tourism rates are still much lower than they were at the beginning of 2020. The fact that rates of Covid-19 continue to increase certainly isn’t helping. Many are unwilling to visit Las Vegas while the pandemic continues to get worse.
Many casino companies are being forced to lay off their employees. Las Vegas Sands is taking a different route, paying all of their workers through October 31st. Hope is that as time goes on, tourism and gambling revenue will begin to increase again.
One major hotel-casino in the Downtown area of Las Vegas is now changing its stance towards certain guests.
Here’s How the Dress Code at D Las Vegas is Changing
As everyone knows, the city of Las Vegas features some of the most impressive casino-resorts ever built. Nowadays, most of the new properties are built on the Las Vegas Strip. Prior to 2012, it had been many years since a major venue was given a modern renovation in the Downtown area of the city.
Derek and Greg Stevens, two brothers with several casinos in Las Vegas, realized something needed to change. They finally began construction on a brand new casino-resort in Downtown Las Vegas called The D. This new property replaced the Fitzgeralds Hotel-Casino and officially opened to the public in the Fall of 2012.
This new hotel-casino instantly became a major hit. The remodeling helped to bring in a huge number of new guests. Many, however, took issue with the fact that The D prohibited anyone with neck or face tattoos from entering the property.
It was an unusual “dress code” for a casino to implement. This week, casino officials announced that the dress code at D Las Vegas has changed. This popular venue no longer bans those with neck and face tattoos.
The casino released an official statement to the media about the situation.
“Upon reopening, in an effort to keep both our guests and employees safe, we implemented several strict door policies, including ID scanners, extra police officers on property, temperature scanning and a more restrictive dress code. In evaluating our policy, we determined that limiting face and neck tattoos was overreaching and we have since rectified.”
It’s good to see this change being made. The D is looking for whatever revenue it can generate right now. Hopefully, this rule change results in an increase in visitation here.
Circa Las Vegas is Open to the Public
The D Las Vegas may be the most popular hotel-casino in Downtown Las Vegas right now. In many ways, it represents a new wave of casinos in this part of the casino. It’s a true “resort-style” property with one of the most impressive pools in the city.
Much like The D, this venue is owned by Derek and Greg Stevens. These brothers have invested a huge amount of money making Downtown Las Vegas an appealing part of the city for potential visitors.
The opening of this new venue didn’t come at the most ideal time, though. It’s currently unclear when tourism rates in this city will return to normal. That puts many casino companies in a precarious position.
Las Vegas Sands recently revealed that the company’s revenue for 2020’s second-quarter is down 97% compared to 2019. One official told the media that Las Vegas was “in a world of hurt.” Even exciting new venues like Circa may struggle to bring in guests right now.
The new dress code at D Las Vegas is certainly a good move. Will this help the hotel-casino bring in more players? That remains to be seen.
