Hard Rock International (HRI) has announced the opening of Rocksino by Hard Rock Deadwood in Deadwood, South Dakota.

The company stated that Rocksino by Hard Rock Deadwood will provide a boutique hotel and casino experience to guests who have come to know of the Hard Rock brand but on a smaller scale than its integrated resorts in international cities.

The opening of Hard Rock Deadwood was attended by South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem, leaders of the Seminole Tribe of Florida and South Dakota Sioux tribes, music stars and others.

Governor Noem said: “For years, historic Deadwood and the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally have given countless individuals the opportunity to vacation and to enjoy the state of South Dakota.

“This new Rocksino by Hard Rock Deadwood will make those opportunities even better for years to come. In fact, as Governor of South Dakota, I am proclaiming today `Hard Rock Day’ across the entire state of South Dakota.”

The Rocksino by Hard Rock Deadwood features a casino with 86 new slot machines, a full-service restaurant and bar offering craft cocktails, a delicious menu, and music memorabilia.
