  • Ability to transform venue for boxing, wrestling, mixed martial arts events, corporate functions and trade shows, as well as red carpet movie premieres and advanced screenings.

    The $60 million Joint will be part of the ongoing $750 million expansion at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. The project broke ground in 2007 and is slated for completion in late 2009.
