2 Florida Hard Rocks to debut 20+ new F&B concepts

The 1,271-room Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood (Fla.) and the 798-room Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa (Fla.) will finish $2.2 billion of expansions this October. When work finishes, the two hotels will reopen with more than 20 new culinary offerings.

The Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, which includes a new guitar-shaped, 450-foot, 638-guestroom tower, is expected to wrap up its $1.5 billion expansion this fall. Once work is complete, it will offer 19 dining options and 20 bars and lounges. New venues will include:

  • Cipresso: An Italian American restaurant, it will mix family-style banquettes and bar-top seating and serve “creative interpretations” of handmade pastas and pizzas, as well as composed specialty dishes.
  • Fresh Harvest: The Fresh Harvest buffet will consist of five main stations, each featuring chefs cooking food to order.
  • Rise Kitchen & Deli: Located at the base of the guitar-shaped tower, this 24-hour American diner/deli will overlook the property’s pool lagoon. It will offer all-day breakfast, salads, burgers, sandwiches and New York City-style deli offerings. It will also feature a juice bar.
