Hard Rock International buying The Mirage operation in Vegas


Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Hard Rock International says it wants to see how a guitar-shaped hotel will play at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip. MGM Resorts’ sale of The Mirage marks the end of an era for a property credited for helping to transform Las Vegas from a gambling hub into an ultra-luxury resort destination. The cash deal is worth nearly $1.1 billion and is expected to close next year. Hard Rock Chairman Jim Allen said Monday that the Florida-based hospitality and entertainment company plans to build a guitar-shaped hotel. It’s not immediately clear if the Mirage’s iconic volcano fountain and Polynesian theme will remain at the site.
