The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City is set to open on June 28 on the iconic Atlantic City boardwalk.

Hard Rock International, owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, purchased the hotel in March 2017 from real estate magnate Carl Icahn and began its massive renovation.

A group of investors including Edgewood Properties CEO Jack Morris and Joseph Jingoli & Son CEO Joe Jingoli have poured $500 million into the project, which is expected to generate more than 3,000 jobs.

The property will boast a rock-chic interior and feature 2,000 hotel rooms, 2,200 slots, 125 game tables and 20 restaurants.

Hard Rock serves as curator of one of the largest, and most valuable, music memorabilia collections and the property will boast a rock-chic interior paying homage to musical greats throughout. Memorabilia will be hand-selected and locally-focused on contemporary musicians and artists with ties to New Jersey.

The hotel has already booked a full lineup of entertainment, sporting events and conferences. More than 150,000 square feet of event space will accommodate large conventions, smaller events and tradeshows and, will include two performance arenas with 7,000 seats.

The 17-acre resort property is formerly the home of the Trump Taj Mahal, which was purchased by Icahn Enterprises in 2014 but ultimately shuttered in 2016 after its casino workers went on strike.
