Stateline's Horizon casino is being converted into the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe opening in late 2014 or early 2015.
The Park family acquired the property formerly known as The Horizon in March and announced a partnership with Warner Hospitality.
The new owners say the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe will undergo a $60 million renovation and redesign that will feature music and will also serve as an indoor and outdoor live music venue.
It will have two renovated hotel towers with more 500 rooms, several new restaurants and bars and a 25,000 square-foot casino.
“The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino brand has music infused in its DNA and is known for celebrating individuality and uniqueness, which makes it a perfect fit for South Lake Tahoe,” Jon Park of the Park family said in a statement.
This is the first Hard Rock Hotel project in northern Nevada.
