Hard Rock International, the gaming brand of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, has announced that it will be bringing its world-class entertainment to the historic city of Deadwood in South Dakota. The Rocksino by Hard Rock Deadwood, a boutique hotel and casino, will have its grand opening on August 8, with Hard Rock International executives, local community members and civic leaders in attendance to celebrate the region’s newest economic driver. The Rocksino by Hard Rock will feature a boutique hotel, a casino with 86 new slot machines, a full-service restaurant, and a bar offering craft cocktails and delicious food, including Deadwood’s most loved pizza.

Mayor of Deadwood, David Ruth, expressed his excitement at the announcement, stating that everyone is thrilled to welcome the “newest, can’t miss property,” Rocksino by Hard Rock. He believes that “the Rocksino by Hard Rock is sure to be an additional gem luring visitors” to the city’s amazing community. Jon Lucas, chief operating officer of Hard Rock International, outlined the company’s pride in being able to provide authentic and memorable experiences embodied by music and rich cultural history. He is thrilled to have the opportunity “to become a part of one of the most celebrated historic places in the US and provide an economic stimulus to the city of Deadwood.”

Guests of Rocksino by Hard Rock Deadwood will be able to enjoy their meals on the Historic Patio featuring a wood fire grill or inside, submerging into the atmosphere of the bar or the VIP mezzanine. Additionally, the Rock Shop Retail Store will present them with an opportunity to shop for custom Rocksino by Hard Rock Deadwood apparel. True to its commitment to supporting local communities, Hard Rock will partner with Tunnel to Towers Foundation to bring relief to the eighth largest Native American Reservation in the US, the Oglala Sioux Tribe, under the tribe’s veterans program.

Hard Rock International recently received recognition from Deloitte and Wall Street Journal by winning the distinction of the best-managed company. The honor is issued on an annual basis to companies that have revenues of at least $250 million.
