One of Las Vegas’ newest properties, The Lucky Dragon Resort, abruptly closed their doors Thursday morning, shutting down their resturant and gaming operations.
While the property’s boutique hotel, with roughly 200 rooms, remains open, how long it will remain open is questionable. A news release late Thursday morning noted the property “is beginning the process of repositioning and, in doing so, will have a reduction in staff.”
The statement also said the closure of the casino and restaurants was temporary, but did not give any indication of how or when the Caisno would reopen.
The company called the process a difficult decision, but one that will pave the way for the hotel-casino to establish new partnerships and enhance the property’s long-term positioning.
They released the following statement:
Effective immediately Lucky Dragon Hotel & Casino is beginning the process of repositioning and, in doing so, will have a reduction in staff while it temporarily closes all gaming and restaurant operations. The hotel and gift shop will remain fully operational including room service, morning tea and coffee. In addition, Cha Garden will remain open, featuring a full bar at night and an expanded food menu. While this is a difficult decision, this repositioning paves the way for Lucky Dragon to establish new partnerships that will enhance the property’s long-term positioning and provide a better guest experience.
We would like to thank our outstanding colleagues for their many contributions, hard work and dedication to the resort. All staff laid off will have the opportunity to rejoin the Lucky Dragon team when gaming and additional restaurant operations resume within six months.
All gaming chip and ticket redemptions can be done through the front desk at the hotel. Any previous gaming, food and beverage promotions or offers will no longer be valid.
We look forward to the future and reuniting with our team members as we implement this repositioning process.
