Hard Rock now in Ohio


Hard Rock International celebrated the official grand opening of Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park in Northeast Ohio on Dec. 18. The first of its kind, Hard Rock Rocksino Northfield Park saw the unveiling of the newest Hard Rock International property and its latest gaming brand, the “Rocksino.”

Guests enjoyed “behind the velvet rope” access to the legendary guitar smash, which marks the opening of every hotel, casino and cafe worldwide, as well as a special performance by the award-winning Joan Jett and The Blackhearts.

True to Cleveland’s roots as the birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll, guests of the Rocksino are immediately greeted by 200,000 square feet of music and a collection of arena rock memorabilia throughout the entire property, including Eddie Van Halen’s treasured red-hot motorcycle in the heart of the Center Bar. In addition to the celebration of the area’s musical history, the Rocksino also serves as the premier entertainment and gaming destination in Northeast Ohio, located on the Northfield Park harness racing grounds, which is centrally located just 20 miles southeast of downtown Cleveland and 20 miles north of Akron, and offers more than 200 live harness races each year.
