Hard Rock Cafe Gears Up To Start Its Temporary Casino in Bristol




Hard Rock Cafe

Hard Rock Cafe a Florida-based Casino and Hospitality operator is soon to launch a temporary casino in Virginia City, Bristol. 

According to the recent news, Hard Rock International Gaming and Hospitality is soon to obtain a license for starting a temporary casino in Bristol’s Virginia City. This news comes at a time when the proposed Hard Rock Cafe’s main gaming resort is still under construction. Under the name of Hard Rock Bristol, the future casino-hotel is still being constructed in the former Bristol Mall where incidentally, the new temporary casino will be located. 

Late last month, the Bristol City Council chose the Florida-based casino and hospitality operator, Hard Rock Cafe, as its developer of choice for the construction of the very first Las Vegas-style gaming center in Bristol. Immediately after that, the news of Hard Rock Cafe applying for a temporary gaming license started floating in the market. 

It is believed that the selection process which took place in the last month was merely a formality as Hard Rock Cafe was the sole responder to the casino proposal submitted by Bristol. As soon as the proposal was first submitted some months ago, the leaders in the city took no time in expressing their consent for the Hard Rock’s development proposition. 

Despite the Bristol City Council’s approval, Bristol still has a lot of work to do before it gets the wheels of its gambling venue running. This is why the details of the temporary casino in Bristol are still waiting for their release until the processes of approval are complete. 

Officials in the Bristol’s City Council have forwarded the Hard Rock Cafe’s proposal to the Virginia Lottery Board for further evaluation and consent. After this, the City Council will authorize a resolution requesting the Circuit Court to order a casino referendum in November. 

It will be only after November 3rd that the fate of the Bristol’s planned casino will be revealed in a citywide referendum. Earlier, a public hearing took place in May where the proposal received a substantial amount of positive reviews.
