Las Vegas: What’s Open and Closed Amid Coronavirus

Most Las Vegas resorts and restaurants, including pools and the city’s most popular chill spots, are open. However, the bars will remain closed indefinitely to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Although they don’t serve alcohol, Minus5 bars on the Skywalk between Luxor and Mandalay Bay, Venetian and Linq Promenade offer a quick respite from outside temperatures, which are expected to hit 113 this week. Bars will still be ice cold, but alcohol will be frozen for the time being according to current mandates.
