Las Vegas in Nevada is one city in the United States that you can bank on for entertainment at any time of the day. The place is a boon for hardcore betters. Apart from dedicated casinos in the city, almost any hotel in the city, big or small, has a casino on its premises with a horde of games. The Hard Rock Hotel and
Casino in Las Vegas is one such venue you should not fail to visit. The place is owned by Virgin Hotels and is operated by Warner Gaming.
Inception of the hotel and casino
The original building on the premises was a Hard Rock café that began its operations in September 1990. A little less than a year later, the following June, a proposal came up about building a hotel-casino next to the restaurant. A couple of years later in September 1993, Hard Rock announced its partnership with Harvey’s Hotel & Casino and began construction of the Hard Rock hotel-casino. The hotel finally opened its doors in March 1995 as a 11-story hotel with 339 rooms, a 28,000 sqft casino and a 1,200-seat concert hotel. What stood out about the place was the structure of a huge 82-foot tall guitar on the outside of the resort.
In 2010, there were many additions to The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas including two new hotel towers, various bars and restaurants, a spa and health club, high fashion shopping outlets and a nightclub. The swimming pool capacity was also tripled. Today, the hotel’s restaurants boast of a range of cuisines. Following a buyout by Virgin Hotels in March 2018, the premises will close for renovation in
February 2020 for close to eight months. As part of this plan, the original Hard Café was demolished and the guitar was moved to the Neon Museum in November 2019.
Plethora of Entertainment at The Hard Rock Hotel and Casino
A casino is undoubtedly a place you would want to check out and try your luck with five games. These games are Blackjack, PaiGow, Baccarat, Roulette and Craps. While Blackjack is a quintessential game, Craps is the right option for those who want to indulge in an action packed and fast-paced game with a pair of dice. Those who are new to the world of betting and would like to try to test what Lady Luck has in store for them should check out Baccarat. This is a table game that can be learned very easily.
For people who are not interested in betting, the Hard Rock Hotel has other options. The place is known for legendary performances that it has rendered over the past twenty years. Music lovers can soothe their souls with a slew of musical styles while those who want to laugh their lungs out can enjoy some rib-tickling stand-up comedy shows.
If you would like to enjoy drinks and try your luck at a casino at the same time, the hotel understands you well. You can make your dreams come true by stepping into SMASH bar and/or MIDWAY BAR to enjoy poker and drinks at a time. The Hard Rock Hotel ensures that no one who enters its premises goes back disappointed. You can visit the mini shopping complex inside the hotel to check out designer clothing,
elegant watches and luxury jewelry. You can also take home some typical Vegas souvenirs as memorabilia.
When you book your stay with the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, you have everything that
your heart desires for, covered under one roof.
