In early February of 2020, the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino closed its doors after 25 years of rocking Vegas; the property will soon become the home of a Virgin Hotel and Casino.
A few months ago, just prior to the closing, our Assistant Editor/Senior Staff Writer Taylor T. Carlson made a series of YouTube videos showing off the property and a quarter century's worth of memories there.
There are five videos, with links to them below. Video One covers the Hard Rock Cafe located outside the hotel/casino, Video Two covers the casino floor, Video Three covers The Joint, which was the larger venue catering to arena-headlining bands, Video Four covers Vinyl, the smaller venue which played host to many bands as well as Raiding the Rock Vault, and Video Five is an "Encore" video with additional pics that didn't make the other videos.
Enjoy, and feel free to share your own memories of the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino as well!
