Hard Rock International and a group of investors have made a $500 million deal to acquire and renovate the Taj Mahal casino property. Set on 17-acres against the legendary Atlantic City Boardwalk, the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will amp up entertainment in world-class style.

Guestrooms and suites, with views of the city and the Atlantic Ocean, will undergo a complete renovation and redesign offering lavishly appointed rooms. Meeting space will be updated to accommodate both large conventions and smaller events.

The property will offer a range of gaming opportunities with plans calling for 2400 slots and 130 table games. Additionally, the casino will boast an entirely redesigned interior, new first-class food and beverage concepts headlined by Council Oak Steak & Seafood. The property’s Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City will be upgraded to a 400-seat venue, including a new stage and central location within the property.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will become the go-to entertainment destination with live music, sporting events, conferences and shows at two separate arenas, seating up to 7,000+ people.

The property’s design will showcase the world’s largest and priceless music memorabilia collection presented in museum-like displays adorning the walls throughout the property.

The Hard Rock Casino Hotel project is expected to generate 1,000 construction jobs and 3,000 permanent jobs with a projected opening date of Memorial Day 2018.
