Mirage Las Vegas Announces Closing Date

Mirage Las Vegas Announces Closing Date

 May 16, 2024

Well, we knew it was coming but it still hurts. The era of the Mirage Las Vegas will come to and end this summer, ushering in new ownership with a new look on The Strip, as Hard Rock International finally steps into a prime time location. This despite a previous announcement that the resort would remain in place through 2025.

The announcement came late yesterday, and a July 17th closing date for Mirage Las Vegas was made official. The iconic volcano attraction will not survive the changes, but will be replaced by a 660-foot guitar-shaped hotel.The 3,000 plus employees will be out of work… at least for now.

Your last chance to stay at the Mirage will be July 14th. The rebranded property is scheduled to reopen in the spring of 2027. It was quite a run from the opening of the property in November of 1989 as Steve Wynn’s first project on Las Vegas Boulevard. Wynn sold Mirage to MGM in 2000.

In a press release, Hard Rock CEO Jim Allen stated that the company would “…like to thank the Las Vegas community and team members for warmly welcoming Hard Rock after 34 years at the Mirage.” This change to the Vegas skyline is the most recent, after the city welcomed the Sphere not long ago, and recently said goodbye to Tropicana.

Hard Rock purchased the property and took ownership of Mirage Las Vegas in late 2021, becoming the first Strip property to be owned by Tribal Gaming via the Florida Seminoles. The new guitar shaped hotel building will stand 37 floors high with about 600 guest rooms, while the existing Mirage hotel tower will remain with its 31 floors.
