Dome Bar

The restored Dome Bar at Hotel Paso del Norte, 10 Henry Trost Court.

A grand opening event at Downtown’s newly opened Hotel Paso del Norte was postponed last week.

Officials with the hotel said Thursday’s event was postponed due to El Paso’s spike in coronavirus cases.

The event will be rescheduled at a later date.

“For more than 100 years, the cultural tapestry of our city has been woven in, through and around the Hotel Paso del Norte,” officials said in a news release. “With a century-long legacy, there’s no reason to rush a large celebration. As we’ve always been, we’ll be here and ready to celebrate together when the time is right.”

The hotel and restaurants remain open for guests, with local health safety protocols in place. Rooms are available for reservation at

On Friday, El Paso County reported its highest-ever daily number of new COVID-19 cases, 838. Public health officials last week also rolled back dine-in hours for restaurants, limited group gatherings and have kept bars closed.

The Hotel Paso del Norte, part of the Marriott Autograph Collection, opened after years of renovations on Oct. 8.
