The Mirage Hotel & Casino, an icon on the Las Vegas Strip since 1989, will close to make way for the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

The transformation, expected to begin soon after closing, marks a significant shift in the Las Vegas landscape, with an ambitious project that includes a sophisticated guitar-shaped hotel.

The Mirage’s last day of operation will be July 17th, and guests must vacate their rooms by July 15th. Reservations made for later dates will be canceled or modified.

This process is part of the transition to new management under Hard Rock International. The company acquired the property from MGM Resorts International in December 2022 for approximately $1.1 billion.

Hard Rock Hotel Acquisition and Impact

Hard Rock International’s purchase of the Mirage is significant not only because of the value involved, but also because it makes the Mirage the first property on the Strip managed by a Native American tribe.

Hard Rock International belongs to the Seminole tribe of Florida, bringing a new cultural and administrative dimension to the famous Las Vegas boulevard.

Since its opening, Mirage has been a beacon of innovation and entertainment. The artificial volcano on the sidewalk, one of the most iconic attractions, has enchanted visitors for decades.

Furthermore, the resort was famous for the Siegfried & Roy show with white tigers, and more recently, for the Cirque du Soleil show with a Beatles soundtrack, which will end on July 7th after 18 years of success.

Finally, with the transformation into Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, the new resort is expected to bring a wave of modernity and innovation. That’s because the guitar-shaped design will be a new landmark on the Strip, attracting tourists from all over the world.

The new development is expected to reopen in 2027, after extensive renovations.
