US.- Hard Rock International has announced it will open its Virginia temporary casino location, Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Bristol, this summer. The venue is scheduled to open July 8.

The temporary 30,000 square-foot casino will feature nearly 900 gaming slots and 20 tables for a variety of gaming options. As well as the main casino floor, there will be non-smoking and high-limit gaming areas.

It will also offer a restaurant, a grab-and-go food outlet, and a sports bar and lounge with entertainment. The casino will also have a Hard Rock store, as well as non-smoking and high-limit gaming areas on its main floor. Hard Rock said the temporary casino will create 600 new jobs. In November, the company submitted a demolition plan to the City of Bristol.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Bristol president Allie Evangelista said: “I cannot wait to open the doors on July 8 for our temporary casino in Bristol. We continue to hire new team members daily and are working hard to fill remaining positions with hiring events over the next couple of months, including two events next week.

“Visitors will be thrilled to enjoy fantastic gaming and dining opportunities at our new property,” she said. “Bristol Casino — Future Home of Hard Rock will be a major draw to Bristol and the region as we move toward completion of our full-scale resort and casino.”

Allie Evangelista was named president of Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Bristol in February. In her new role, Allie reports to Jon Lucas, chief operating officer of Hard Rock International.

Hard Rock CEO Jon Lucas added: “We are excited to open the casino and welcome guests. As Virginia’s first casino, Bristol Casino — Future Home of Hard Rock will be a wonderful addition to the Hard Rock global portfolio of dining, hotel and entertainment properties.

“I am pleased by the significant progress that Allie Evangelista and her team are making toward a July 8 grand opening celebration for Bristol.”

The permanent $300m casino in Bristol will offer 2,700 slots and 100 table games, multiple restaurants and bars, an outdoor concert venue, convention space and multiple shops. The permanent casino will take another 18 months to two years to construct.
