The Mirage, long celebrated for its volcanic eruptions and secret gardens, has been the backdrop to Las Vegas' most thrilling poker games and unforgettable entertainment experiences for decades.

In a move that has sent ripples through the community, Mirage team members were informed of the impending closure during a Town Hall meeting, with further details provided in a letter from Mirage President Joe Lupo. "We look forward to the beginning of an exciting journey as Hard Rock Las Vegas will ignite the Strip with entertainment, innovation, and world-class hospitality; changing the landscape of the Las Vegas Strip, just as the Mirage did in 1989," Lupo expressed his optimism for the future.

The transition is not just about the change in skyline; it marks the end of an era for poker aficionados who have long revered the Mirage as a haven for high-stakes games. Though the Mirage poker room closed back in 2020, its legacy endures in the tales of poker legends who graced its tables.

As the Mirage makes way for this next chapter in Las Vegas history, there's a mix of nostalgia for what's being left behind and excitement for what's to come. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Guitar Hotel, standing tall at 700 feet, is set to be a beacon of modernity on the Strip, promising a blend of entertainment, innovation, and hospitality that will redefine the Las Vegas experience.

While the Mirage's closure signifies a poignant farewell to a beloved landmark, the anticipation for the Guitar Hotel's opening in 2027 marks the dawn of a new era. As Las Vegas continues to evolve, the city remains a testament to transformation, resilience, and the relentless pursuit of innovation.
