Nothing is final, but it’s being reported that a deal is in the works to sell the Hard Rock to a buyer group that includes Richard Branson’s Virgin Hotels.
No other details, including the purchase price, have been disclosed, except that the sale could be concluded “this quarter.”
It appears that the resort will switch to the Virgin brand, ending the Hard Rock’s casino presence in Las Vegas, although a casino-less Hard Rock Cafe still operates on the south end of the strip.
The opening of Luxor’s Esports Arena Las Vegas has been announced as March 18.
The first dedicated esports venue on the strip will immediately begin hosting a series of tournaments and events.

The Official Saw Escape Experience was created by the developer of Circus Circus’ Fright Dome.
The Strip’s first all-in-Spanish show, “Ilusión Mental,” has opened at Planet Hollywood.
The all-ages production plays at 5:30 p.m. Saturdays to Mondays and Thursdays; tickets are $66 and $79.
Last year the number of weddings in Las Vegas hit its lowest point since 1991, falling 3.9 percent to 78,186.
