Mirage Prepares For Closure To Replace The Volcano With A Guitar Hotel
In one of the most recent checkers moves on the Las Vegas Strip MGM traded the Mirage for Cosmopolitan, which it bought about the same time.
MGM sold the Mirage to Hard Rock International. The sale has not officially closed, but when it does, you can expect major changes at the property. The Hard Rock, which is the gaming arm of the Seminole Tribe, will become the first Native American tribe to operate a casino on the Las Vegas Strip. The Hard Rock has the right to use the Mirage name for up to three years royalty free. It's expected that the property will be rebranded Hard Rock Las Vegas once renovation construction is complete. The company has not confirmed any plans to close the resort or remove the Volcano but it will happen. The Mirage Volcano will eventually be closed to make way for a Guitar Hotel, like Hard Rock's signature property in the Fort Lauderdale area. The company has been vague about its plans for the Mirage towers. It's likely, but not confirmed by Hard Rock, that Mirage could close for an extended period during the renovation. MGM sold the Mirage to Hard Rock International in late 2021. That transaction has not officially closed, but when it does, you can expect major changes at the property. Another legendary Casino name will pass into history and, while something new will rise at the site, it's possible that the property could remain closed for a long period of time.
