Mirage Las Vegas Liquidation Sale to Begin in August 

The iconic Mirage Las Vegas is set to close on July 17 to facilitate the site’s transformation into the new casino resort Hard Rock Las Vegas, which will open in 2027.

In the meantime, the Mirage’s fixtures and fittings will be going up for sale from August 1. Nevada-based Proximity Capital posted a listing late last week for the sale.

No word yet from owner Hard Rock International or Proximity Capital if anything from the Mirage’s casino will be available in public auctions. Casino memorabilia collectors will no doubt be very interested in items from the famous Mirage, opened in 1979 by Steve Wynn. 

Hard Rock plans to close the resort in July, before demolishing most of it by the end of the year. The Florida-based operator will build a giant 36-story glass guitar shaped hotel to replace it, as well as renovating and rebranding the casino spaces. 

Suites and Prizes 

Anything from inside the 3,028 rooms across the two Mirage hotel towers will apparently be up for grabs. Prices will be in the range of $1,250 to $3,500 for the contents of any single room or suite, depending on its size.

Proximity has said it will be offering discounts and financial packages to any Nevada hotelier or AirBnB owner who is interested in the clearance sale. 

They will be offering loans of up to 25% of the desired purchase amount based on the financial status of the applicants.

Furniture and fittings will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis from August 1. Proximity initially listed the sale openly on its website on Friday. But it has since been put behind an email signup list for more details. 

The only things currently for sale from the still-operating Mirage are stock from several of its already-closed restaurants and shops.  

That includes thousands of bottles of high-end wine and spirits from the closed Diablo’s, Otoro, and California Pizza Kitchen and Pantry. Clothing outlets Essentials and Heritage also have stock in need of liquidation. 

The Transformation 

Hard Rock purchased the Mirage from MGM Resorts International for $1.1 billion in 2022. It announced the closure of the hotel for redevelopment earlier this year, which is set for July. 

The initial demolition permit applications, including for the iconic street side attraction the Mirage Volcano, were filed in late May. 

Some 3,000 staff at the Mirage are set to be laid off, most with decent severance packages. Hard Rock says when the new Hard Rock Las Vegas Casino Hotel opens, it will employ double that number of people, with 6,000 positions expected to be needed.
