Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa making way for new expansion

April 5, 2018

Demo begins on oldest portion of the current resort destination

TULSA, Okla. – Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is making way for a new expansion by beginning demolition of the resort’s oldest structure on April 12. Over the next month, crews will remove the tent-like structure on the northeast side of the property.

The roughly 18,000-square-foot section of the property was built in 2002 and has served as a country and western themed portion of the casino. A new structure will take its place.

About 275 of the nearly 400 electronic games from the area will be relocated to other parts of the casino during construction, primarily on the second floor in and near the Grand Hall of the Cherokees.

Details on the expansion will be announced at a later date.

Since opening the first casino resort destination in Oklahoma in 2004, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa has gone through many transformations. In that time, two additional hotel towers have been added, along with a 2,700-seat concert venue, multiple restaurants and entertainment venues, a nonsmoking gaming area with a food court and sports bar, 23,000 square feet of convention space, and a parking garage. The newest amenities added just last year include a luxury spa and an adults-only, resort-style swimming pool.

Cherokee Nation Entertainment is the gaming and hospitality company of the Cherokee Nation. The company also operates nine Cherokee Casinos, including a horse racing track; three resort hotels; three golf courses; and other retail operations.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa is located off Interstate 44 at exit 240. To reserve a hotel room, purchase concert tickets, book a visit to The Spa or find out more information about amenities and entertainment, visit www.hardrockcasinotulsa.com.
