I don't know if anyone saw this but a sale happened and it has some pretty interesting timing. I would imagine the plan is to have it be up and running in time for the Super Bowl in 2024 so they will have to get things going right away. 

Last month’s announcement that Hard Rock Entertainment and MGM Resorts International have reached a deal that will transform the Mirage into a new Hard Rock Las Vegas hotel and casino may have flown below the radar a bit. The Super Bowl is coming to Las Vegas in 2024, which was announced at approximately the same time, and another COVID surge during the holiday season was obviously making big news, too.

Hard Rock is acquiring the operations of the Mirage for $1.075 billion in one of the most significant Strip transactions in years. Seminole Gaming owns the Hard Rock resort brand, and this endeavor will mark the first time a tribal gaming company will run a casino resort on the Strip.

The deal is expected to close in the second half of 2022, and then all eyes will be on the historic property between Caesars Palace and Treasure Island, waiting to watch this evolution take shape.

I could have sworn they sold this hotel 2 years ago??? Maybe I was seeing something about deals being talked about. I am not sure they will be able to get it done in less than 2 years. I would be really surprised.

Are there any plans as to how this building will look? I am curious cause I have seen some pretty dull buildings under the Hardrock name in the last decade.

I am sure this will likely get a bunch more traffic to the spot. A lot of people from other countries love visiting themed casinos and hotels. I am shocked they don't have even more than they do in Vegas. It seems like they pulled away from them since the late '90s.

^ I agree

I love themed places and hotels and I am not sure why they cut back on them. I guess they must have lost business? Or maybe they were just considered outdated. Who knows!

Yeah you were likely thinking about reading over the deal. A lot of times these deals are talked about years in advance before anything even gets started with them.

I found some information on the design. Apparently, it is going to be a giant purple guitar shape. I mean, that is pretty cool. I do like some really heavily themed hotels and spots.
