Las Vegas Mirage property to take new shape

Las Vegas Mirage to Take on New Look

One of Las Vegas’ most iconic resort casinos, will soon take on a whole new look. The swanky Mirage will become a Hard Rock property and they plan to change the resort to resemble an electric guitar. It will be renamed Hard Rock Las Vegas. They bought the resort from MGM Resorts for $1.1 billion. The deal is expected to close before the end of the year. The property will operate as The Mirage through 2023 before it’s closed and renovated over the course of a 26-month to 30-month project.

The Mirage will be stripped down to its concrete shell. Much of the surrounding spaces, such as the pool areas and outside grounds along the 77-acre site, will be demolished and reconfigured.

Plans call for the remodeled Hard Rock to have 3,700 rooms and suites, a 174,000-square-foot casino, an additional 50,000 to 85,000 square feet of convention space, 21 restaurants and a new Hard Rock Live entertainment space.
