Red Rock Resorts is gearing up to launch the Durango Casino & Resort in Las Vegas, pending regulatory approval. The much-anticipated grand opening is scheduled for November 20th, and excitement is building. Station Casinos, a subsidiary of Red Rock, will manage this new development.
Located near the 215 Beltway on South Durango Drive, the resort promises to offer a top-tier experience for both tourists and locals. With a $780 million investment, the Durango Resort will be the sole unrestricted gaming property within a five-mile radius in one of Las Vegas Valley’s fastest-growing regions.

Visitors will enjoy 200 luxurious hotel rooms, a spacious convention area, a resort pool complete with cabanas, and free parking. Furthermore, 15 restaurants will cater to a variety of tastes, including four signature dining outlets and an inviting food hall.
In a statement, Red Rock Resorts officials have expressed their eagerness to provide “an exceptional gaming experience, personalized hospitality, premier restaurants, and convenient access along the I-215.”
Lorenzo Fertitta, the Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors, assured a grand opening in a call with investors. “When we open properties, every aspect of the property is open, ready to go,” he said. “We’ll open the doors and let her rip for the customers.”
Preparations for the opening are in full swing. On Thursday night, the company showcased Durango’s 130-foot-tall LED marquee, announcing the launch to passing drivers on the 215. Additionally, Red Rock Resorts has initiated an internal recruitment campaign and will start external hiring on August 14th. Approximately 1,500 jobs are available at the resort.
Fertitta also confirmed that a phase two expansion is on the cards. This would likely include additional gaming and entertainment facilities. However, the timing of this expansion will depend on the company’s financial situation at that time.
