Buys Iconic Hard Rock Hotel in Vegas

Richard Branson can finally get some free room service in Vegas … he just bought the legendary Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.
The billionaire announced the deal Friday at the hotel … which he plans to rebrand as The Virgin Hotel Las Vegas. The hotel will remain open as it undergoes renovations … it’s expected to be completed in 2019.
The deal included other partners … including the LA-based Juniper Capital Partners. It’s unclear how much Branson dropped to add a second hotel to his portfolio. The only other Virgin hotel is in Chicago.
Here’s hoping Branson knows what he’s gotten into … the Hard Rock Hotel’s seen a lot in its 23 years of existence. Especially some brawls.
RIP, Hard Rock.
