Paris Las Vegas marked the reopening of its doors on Las Vegas Boulevard to the public with a special French-inspired moment featuring can-can dancers, a Monsieur Loyal ringmaster, Caesars Entertainment Regional President Gary Selesner and Paris Las Vegas General Manager Sherri Sosa. After the Monsieur Loyal initially welcomed guests outside with "bienvenue" and led the countdown from "trois, deux, un," Sosa pushed the button to launch blue, white and red confetti over the entrance as the resort officially reopened its doors. Additionally, first casino guest Roy Anderson ceremoniously rolled the first dice at a craps table with Selesner and Sosa cheering him on inside Paris Las Vegas.
"As customer interest in visiting Las Vegas continues to increase this summer, we are pleased to welcome guests back to Paris Las Vegas with the same spirit and sophistication they have come to enjoy at our French-inspired resort," said Tony Rodio, CEO of Caesars Entertainment. "We are also committed to emphasizing our enhanced health and safety protocols while creating memorable experiences for all our guests."
Paris Las Vegas offers renovated guest rooms and suites, a variety of food and beverage amenities, access to the fitness center and outdoor pool, as well as slot machines and table games on the casino floor. The Company intends to comply with all reopening and operating directives from Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak, the Nevada Gaming Control Board, and public health authorities.
The Eiffel Tower at Paris Las Vegas will also display a new, free light show in honor of the reopening of the resort, every half hour from dusk to midnight nightly through June 30.
