Mirage Casino and Volcano in Las Vegas to Make Way for Hard Rock's Guitar-Shaped Hotel Tower

  • 2 months ago
The iconic Mirage casino in Las Vegas will close in July after over three decades, making way for a rebranding under Hard Rock International. Hard Rock will construct a nearly 700-foot tall guitar-shaped hotel tower on the site, similar to their property in Florida. Over 3,000 Mirage employees will lose their jobs due to the closure, with Hard Rock paying $80 million in severance. The new resort will employ over 6,000 when complete. The Mirage's nightly volcano eruptions provided free entertainment on the Strip and inspired attractions at other casinos.
