The Mohegan Tribe, which owns and operated the Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut, is the first Native American tribe to operate a casino in Las Vegas. The Sun Casino at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas opened on March 26, 2021.
Virgin Hotels Las Vegas replaces the former Hard Rock Hotel, which operated 1995-2020 on Harmon Avenue east of the Strip. Richard Branson and a group of investors purchased the Hard Rock property in 2018. Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment was contracted as the licensed operator of the casino in September 2019.
Hard Rock was shut down in April 2020. The property was rebranded as Virgin Hotels Las Vegas and a year-long renovation culminated with a new grand opening in March 2021.
