Clark County Greenlights Hard Rock’s Guitar-Shaped Tower in Vegas

The iconic guitar, synonymous with the international entertainment brand Hard Rock, will soon be arriving on the Strip in the gambling capital of the world, Las Vegas. Earlier this week, Clark County officials greenlighted the design for the new guitar-shaped tower that is expected to emerge at the Mirage, likely replacing the volcano site.

The guitar-shaped tower will be a hotel offering some 600 rooms for guests. Additionally, the new tower would feature restaurants, gaming space and other amenities, spanning nearly 40 floors in height. The Clark County Commissioners’ vote that greenlighted the guitar-shaped tower happened on Wednesday. The permits for the plan and re-design of the Mirage confirm that the existing tower will remain. However, next to it, a new 660 feet tall guitar-shaped tower would be built.

“Clark County Commissioners just approved permits and designs for the plan on the current site of the Mirage Las Vegas volcano. The existing tower will remain and a new 660 feet tall guitar-shaped tower with 600 suites will be built,“

It was back in December when Hard Rock International (HRI), secured approval for the acquisition of the Mirage from MGM Resorts. The company agreed to acquire the property in a deal for $1.08 billion, which was initially announced late in 2021.

Although HRI hinted at plans to revamp the property, the entertainment giant confirmed that those plans would not impact its operation and it won’t be closed. At the time, the company noted it has “no current plans to cease operation of The Mirage and any reporting to the contrary is inaccurate.”

Still, considering the construction works needed for the revamp of the property, HRI did not rule out a short temporary closure of the property. However, if that happens it may be at some point in 2024 and only given that the construction works require it.
