Starting Aug. 1, everything inside the rooms in The Mirage’s towers will be up for grabs. Las Vegas-based liquidator Proximity Capital will clear the property ahead of its three-year metamorphosis into the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and Guitar Hotel Las Vegas.

The furniture and fixtures inside 3,028 Mirage rooms will be offered as entire-room packages only. Prices will range from $1,250 for a one-king or two-queen room, to $2,500 for a 2BR tower suite, a 2BR penthouse suite, or a hospitality suite.

Proximity promises discounts for hotel and Airbnb owners, according to the sale’s website, which went live before the casino resort closes on July 17.

It’s not clear whether Proximity, or another entity, will offer additional public or private sales of items from the casino. These are the sales that collectors want to see. (Neither Proximity nor The Mirage replied to emails seeking comment.)

This will be the second Las Vegas Strip resort liquidation sale in two months. Prior to the current demolition of the Tropicana, Ohio-based International Content Liquidations sold off its contents in April — though that sale also included items from the property’s casino.

End of an Era

The Mirage was opened by casino mogul Steve Wynn in 1989, transforming Las Vegas from a hub for schlocky entertainment and bargain buffets into a destination for superstar residencies and world-class dining — along with prices to match.

Hard Rock International, owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, purchased the operating rights to The Mirage from MGM Resorts International for $1.1B in a cash deal that closed late in 2022.

The Tribe will transform the luxury resort into the next Hard Rock Las Vegas, replacing The Mirage’s volcano with a 36-story guitar-shaped tower.

The first Hard Rock, located off the Strip, was sold to billionaire Richard Branson and has operated as Virgin Hotels Las Vegas since 2021.
