The 2,000-room Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will open June 28, following a $500 million, head-to-toe renovation of the former Trump Taj Mahal. Among the reimagined offerings at the Boardwalk property are a casino with 2,200 slots and 120 table games in the "rock-chic" interior, 150,000 square feet of meeting and event space, and a new Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City, which has been relocated from its former Boardwalk location to a new 400-seat venue within the resort. The property also will feature a beach bar, a Rock Spa & Salon with 31 treatment rooms, a Body Rock fitness center and Hard Rock signature amenities like the Sound of Your Stay, which allows guests to play complimentary vinyl records or jam out on a Fender guitar in their rooms.
In addition, the resort has announced a roster of more than 50 entertainment acts for this summer and beyond, including names such as Blake Shelton, Stone Temple Pilots, Counting Crows, Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons, and Amy Schumer.
 
"The grand opening of the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City will set the tone for a new era of entertainment for Atlantic City. Our $500 million newly reimagined property will offer something for everyone, and we're thrilled to welcome our first guests in June," said Jim Allen, Hard Rock International chairman and CEO.
