Own a piece of The Mirage: Las Vegas resort prepares to sell furnishings

Updated June 14, 2024 - 5:06 pm

Liquidators may soon begin to clear rooms at The Mirage.

Proximity Capital, a Las Vegas-based investment and liquidation firm, launched a website to promote the sale of furniture and furnishings for 3,028 hotel rooms and suites at the Strip property closing July 17. Late Friday afternoon the website had been taken down. Proximity Capital didn’t return calls seeking comment.

Hard Rock International officials declined to say if they plan to run a public liquidation sale event. “However, we are still considering the concept of a public sale for some items,” a spokesperson said in a Friday email.

Hard Rock, which acquired the 34-year-old hotel-casino in 2022, will transform it into Hard Rock Las Vegas during a three-year renovation.

Operators said they have also begun a closeout sale for wine bottles sold at several restaurant and retail outlets: Essentials, Heritage, Costa, Diablo’s, Otoro, California Pizza Kitchen and Pantry.

Hard Rock plans to reconceptualize the property responsible for the megaresort boom, developed by Steve Wynn. The company will build a 660-foot tall, all-suite hotel tower shaped like a guitar, along with other sweeping renovations inside the main building.

A different resort closure in the spring brought liquidators to the Strip. In preparation for the demolition of the Tropicana, a Rat Pack-era property, International Content Liquidation Inc. ran several public and private sales. The site is being cleared so the Oakland Athletics can begin construction on its planned $1.5 billion, 33,000-seat ballpark.

This story has been updated to reflect that the liquidation website has been taken down.
