As the end of 2020 approaches, many families and businesses are looking for ways to celebrate in a safe yet festive manner. Home to the largest ballroom in downtown Las Vegas and the award-winning Oscar’s steakhouse, the Plaza Hotel & Casino is offering holiday luncheon and dinner options for small groups in line with its #MaskOnMeetOn Initiative that outlines enhanced health and safety protocols for meetings and events as directed by federal, state and local health agencies.
“The holiday season is upon us, and people deserve the opportunity to celebrate in a safe, relaxed manner,” said Jonathan Jossel, CEO of the Plaza Hotel & Casino. “The Plaza and Oscar’s can provide a beautiful space and a delicious menu, prepared and served by our expert culinary staff, while observing all mandated health and safety protocols, to allow small groups of friends and family the chance to celebrate the holidays and toast the end of 2020.”
To ensure social distancing, this holiday season Oscar’s steakhouse can accommodate a total of 165 guests spread out over the main dining room under the glass dome (79), the lounge (32) and private dining room (54). Oscar’s offers various group dining menus and packages, including a selection of hors d’oeuvres and 3- or 4-course plated dinners.
The Plaza’s 30,000 sq. ft. of convention space can accommodate groups less than 250 people (per current state standards) and be transformed into smaller spaces with floor-to-ceiling sound buffering air walls to separate groups. In addition to three standalone meeting rooms, the 19,000 sq. ft. Sierra Ballroom can be divided into 10 rooms.
Inside the convention space, the Plaza’s professional event planning and catering team can develop customized menus, including a plated holiday luncheon starting at $25 per person and a plated dinner starting at $30 per person. Catered dinners will include a complimentary holiday toast to send off 2020. A winter wonderland photo opportunity background can also be set up upon request for selfies during the event.
The Plaza’s #MaskOnMeetOn Initiative outlines numerous protocols for event planning and execution to help ensure the health and safety of attendees, including mandatory face coverings and social distancing. The Plaza also offers customized technology solutions, such as live web streaming and engaging social media interaction for all attendees, onsite and remotely.
Other #MaskOnMeetOn protocols include the continual sanitization of frequently touched surfaces such as door handles, tables and chairs; no shared culinary services such as buffets or water stations; numerous hand sanitizer stations; and a mandatory wellness check point with a temperature screening for all guests. Air quality automation system in all meeting and conference spaces has also been adjusted to provide 100 percent fresh air 24 hours a day to achieve 14-16 air exchanges per hour.
