There are currently job openings at the facility that involve Administrative Assistant, Hospitality Manager, Executive Chef, All Department Supervisors involving Food and Beverage, Casino and Kitchen, Public Area Clerks, Housekeeping, Bartenders, Kitchen staff and Retail Sales Associates. Additional details for applicants interested in working for Rocksino by Hard Rock Deadwood will be announced soon.

Additionally, it consists of a casino featuring 86 of the latest slot machines, a full-service restaurant and bar with incredible craft cocktails and a unique new menu that will involve everyone’s favorite pizza in Deadwood made in a brand new contemporary kitchen. Guests can dine on the Historic Patio, which will consist of a wood-burning grill, inside at the bar or VIP mezzanine. They can also shop at the Rock Shop Retail Store for custom Rocksino apparel from Hard Rock Deadwood. As for the rooms, the remodeled deluxe guest rooms are set to open later this year.

In this regard, Jon Lucas, Chief Operating Officer at Hard Rock International, said: “Hard Rock prides itself on being able to provide authentic and memorable experiences for our guests embodied by music and rich cultural history. We are thrilled to become a part of one of the most celebrated historic places in the U.S. and provide an economic stimulus to the city of Deadwood.”
