Hard Rock Lake Tahoe is bringing the music—and the style—to already chic Lake Tahoe scene. Brought to South Lake Tahoe by the same team behind the Hard Rock Las Vegas, the $60 million resort transformed the former Horizon Resort in Stateline, Nevada. The Park family, local businessmen in the Lake Tahoe area, wanted to transform the property from top to bottom. They teamed with Warner Hospitality, experts in the casino management company to make the resort a top destination in the region.
The reborn resort is easy to reach from many cities in Nevada and California, just an hour away from Reno and two from Sacramento. No matter where guests begin their journeys, they'll find a resort that's designed to be fun and relaxing. With live music at its core, Hard Rock really lives up to its name. Besides its multiple live music venues, there's more than 500 guestrooms, a casino, and gourmet restaurants to go along with genuine music memorabilia.
