4455 Paradise Road, Las Vegas
A major thoroughfare between McCarran International Airport and the Las Vegas Strip is being temporarily renamed to honor a hall-of-fame band taking up residency at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
Paradise Road will be temporarily renamed Paradise City Road in recognition of the Guns N’ Roses’ dozen shows from Halloween through Nov. 24 at the Hard Rock’s Joint. "Paradise City" is one of the band’s top-selling tunes.
The name change, endorsed by Clark County, will go into effect Wednesday and change back after band ends its run at the Joint.
The official announcement will come at 2:30 p.m. as band members and officials from the Hard Rock and Clark County celebrate the change during a ceremony in the Hard Rock’s parking lot at the corner of Paradise and East Harmon Avenue.
Arguably one the coolest joints in town, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino houses some of Vegas' best entertainment, restaurants and nightlife.
At Hard Rock, it's all about the music. From the light fixtures made out of drum cymbals and guitar shaped door handles to stage costumes and tools of the trade of legendary musicians displayed on the walls, the hotel screams rock and roll. The Hard Rock's Joint has hosted some the biggest names in music — from The Who to Bob Dylan to hometown heroes, The Killers.Aside from the music venues, the pool at the Hard Rock is one of its biggest attractions. Spread out over 4.7 acres, the pool area features swim-up blackjack, a bar and grill, private cabanas, a bevy of secluded nooks, a waterfall and an extensive live music venue with a dance floor. During the summer, the pool transforms into the Rehab club on Sunday afternoons.
The resident nightclub Body English fuses European elegance with a rock star bachelor pad and it often a hot spot for visiting celebs and popular DJs. Vintage rock memorabilia lines the walls at Wasted Space, Hard Rock's anti-club.
Restaurants at Hard Rock are just as hip as the rest of the casino. Pink Taco serves up Mexican dishes, as well as a Central American and Caribbean menu. Nobu, one of five worldwide Japanese-specialty restaurants from famed Nobu Matsuhisa, satisfies a different taste. For round-the-clock cuisine, Mr. Lucky's 24/7, is sure to ease your appetite even after a Vegas-all-nighter.
