Las Vegas's Most Popular Casinos
No. 16 Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
Known for a hard-rocking atmosphere, musical guests, and the debauched summer Sunday pool party, Rehab, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino has been fine-tuning its glamorous side ever since a $750 million overhaul in 2010. On-site venues attract the likes of Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, Mötley Crüe (currently in residence at The Joint), and The Rolling Stones. The casino’s 18-table poker room qualifies as one of the best off the Strip, and there's a good range of table games, but the coolest reason to check in: swim-up poker in the hotel’s pool.
The Buzz: Hard Rock will soon open a High-Limit Gaming room; an Asian gaming scene, including a restaurant and Asian-style casino with pai gow and baccarat; a new entertainment venue, Vinyl; a gastro-pub, Culinary Dropout; and a new beach, with Tahitian-style cabanas (the swim-up blackjack stays).
