DEADWOOD — For the safety of employees and guests and growing concerns of the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic, Deadwood Mountain Grand is suspending operations until further notice.

Santana’s Sports Bar and Grill, Six String Restaurant and all casino table games closed at 10 p.m. on Friday. Slots will remain operational through 3 a.m. Sunday, and the hotel will close at 11 a.m. on Monday.

According to a prepared statement by resort officials, they are making the safety of their employees and our guests our top priority and are working with industry partners on recommendations for federal intervention that will help ensure the DMG – and the industry – recover from this crisis and return to provide first class service, entertainment and hospitality as soon as it is safe to do so

“As the Coronavirus Pandemic continues to grow and our concern for our employees and guests, we have made the difficult decision to suspend operations at Deadwood Mountain Grand for the immediate future,” said Deadwood Mountain Grand General Manger Susan Kightlinger. “I cannot thank our staff enough for their strength and dedication during this increasingly difficult time and look forward to welcoming everyone back when the virus subsides.”

“We are closely monitoring the CDC and Federal Government suggestions concerning the virus and apologize for the disruption,” added Kightlinger. Visit for the latest updates as to when the property will reopen.
