Iconic Mirage Casino Closing After 34 Years

The iconic Mirage Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip is closing down after 34 years.

Hard Rock said that The Mirage Hotel & Casino is scheduled to cease operations on July 17, 2024. It will then undergo an extensive transformation to then reopen as the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Guitar Hotel Las Vegas. Reopening date is set for 2027.

The Mirage opened with a Polynesian theme as the first megaresort on the Strip in 1989, spurring a building boom on the famous Las Vegas boulevard. Its volcano fountain was one of the first sidewalk attractions. The casino is also known for hosting the famous Siegfried and Roy’s white tigers show and a Cirque du Soleil show set to Beatles music.

MGM Resorts bought the Mirage Hotel and Casino from Wynn in 2000 and then sold it in 2022 for more than $1 billion to Hard Rock International.

Hard Rock International said Wednesday that more than 3,000 employees will be laid off and it expects to pay out $80 million in severance. The Culinary Workers Union, which represents about half of the Mirage’s employees, said in a statement that affected workers will get $2,000 for each year of employment with the option of returning when the hotel reopens.

Mirage reservations beyond July 14, 2024 will be cancelled and refunds will be issued. Casino chip must be used by that date at the Mirage but can also be redeemed at neighboring Treasure Island for another 120 days.
