The Hard Rock

The Hard Rock Cafe, Hotel and Casino are about a mile east of the Aladdin.  If you like Rock 'n' Roll, this is the place for you.  The casino is small compared to the ones on the strip.  But there are lots of exhibits, including clothing, guitars, and even a hand written poem by Jim Morrison.  Carole King was right:  the regulars can't keep away from the Hard Rock Cafe!
