Hard Rock Casino Northern Indiana will be operated by Hard Rock International owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida. The casino owner is Spectacle Entertainment with a minority share owned by Hard Rock International.
In 2019 Indiana passed a new gaming law that authorized construction of a new casino in Gary. Spectacle Entertainment, who had purchased the two Majestic Star casino boats in Buffington Harbor in March 2019, was granted permission to move the Majestic Star casino licenses to a new casino to be constructed on land in Gary, Indiana.
The groundbreaking ceremony was held January 9, 2020. See News Article
The site of Hard Rock Casino Gary is a 27-acre parcel on the southside of the Borman Expressway at Burr Street and 29th Avenue.
Construction of the Hard Rock Casino Gary will have two phases. The first phase will build the 200,000-square-foot casino including a Hard Rock Cafe and Hard Rock Live concert venue. This phase will open in late 2020 or early 2021. A second phase of construction will add a 200-room hotel and parking structure opening 2022-2023.
On Dec 17, 2019 the Indiana Gaming Commission issued a final authorization to Spectacle Entertainment to replace its two Majestic Star Casino boats with a land casino in Gary at 29th Avenue and Burr Street. The commission also approved Hard Rock International as a minority owner.
Groundbreaking was January 9, 2020. The target date for opening is Dec. 31, 2020. Weather delays could push the opening into the first quarter of 2021.
