The property will have 16 restaurants and 20 bars apart from the hotel and is part of a $2.2 billion project
This one’s for all you music enthusiasts. The world’s first guitar-shaped hotel is all set to open in South Florida this fall. Hard Rock’s four-hundred foot-tall guitar shaped hotel was built with an investment of $1.5 billion. The hotel is part of a $2.2 billion project expanding two Florida Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos and will open on October 24, according to Fox News.
Room reservations at the hotel can be made from July 24. Maroon 5 will headline the inauguration of the hotel in October. The South Florida hotel has floor-to-ceiling glass panes running the length of the building and is designed to look like back-to-back guitars. Bedrooms will start from 515 square feet upwards. The Oasis Tower will have swim-up suites and with many amenities. The pricing of hotel rooms, services or other forms of entertainment is not available at the moment.
Adam Levine and the band will perform at the Seminole Hard Rock in Hollywood for the opening of Hard Rock Live, the new 6,500-seat venue, according to People. The tickets to the headliner musical act are already live.
Anne Hotte, CEO of the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce is excited about the possibilities of the attraction, “It’s just going to put Hollywood on the map. It is our opportunity to be known to the whole world for something absolutely magnificent.”
Jim Allen, chairman of Hard Rock International and CEO of Seminole Gaming revealed the details in a press conference held at New York City’s Hard Rock Cafe. “The Hard Rock brand is stronger today than it ever has been,” said Allen. He said the Hard Rock brand “represents more than food, beverage and a place to stay.”
The draw of the property is without doubt ‘Hard Rock Live’ that will host at least 100 concerts a year. Over $125 million has been spent on the entertainment space alone. The multi-purpose venue will not be limited to just concerts and will also host boxing, theatrical entertainment, and even award shows.
Another highlight of the property will be “The Oculus”, a free show that will include sound, light, water, and choreography. Jim Allen said the property will also include a day pool with club atmosphere to “rival any of Vegas’ pool parties.” Hard Rock’s property will also feature family-friendly spaces including a man-made lake with paddle boats, a lazy river, a 12,000-foot rooftop bar, and lounge area as well as retail stores and large spaces for conventions.
With 16 restaurants and 20 bars, there is something in it for everyone. You can pick and choose the kind of food and ambience that suits your sensibilities at the luxury destination. You can also choose to go for the VIP experience by renting bungalows with private pools. There will be villas submerged in water with their own personal butler service. Once the expansion is completed, the attraction will have comedy theater, 3,000 slot machines, and 228 game tables.
