As guests placed their bets on the Super Bowl at the Bristol Casino’s sportsbook, crews are building up Bristol’s next big attraction. The future Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Bristol is rising from the former Bristol Mall parking lot.

Crews have made significant progress on the construction since breaking ground in December 2022.

At that time, the goal for opening was summer 2024.

“The building is all the way up now, so we have our hotel tower up,” said Casino President Allie Evangelista. “Rooms are being completed. We’ll have 300 rooms by the end of the year, but we’re on target to open the casino floor by July of this year.”
