Wasted Space. Co-created by Action Sports Super Star, Carey Hart, Wasted Space will officially open July 19 with a private VIP party and a special acoustic rock set from Gavin Rossdale.
The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is opening the rock lounge as part of its $800 million expansion and renovation. Wasted Space is co-owned by Hart, Yankees baseball player Jason Giambi, and the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Rockers Benji and Joel Madden of Good Charlotte are partners. Hard Rock’s Cory McCormack will act as Managing Partner.
Wasted Space represents the ultimate depiction of the decadent rock n’ roll lifestyle. The first anti-club of its kind, Wasted Space melds the high-end rock n’ roll culture with fashion, art and design creating a one of a kind atmosphere and nightlife experience.
“I wanted a place where my friends and I could hang out and listen to some great rock music with a cool atmosphere…there were no options in Vegas, so I made my own,” said Hart. “Wasted Space will feature the top rock artists weekly, in addition to the hottest DJ’s in the country.”
The venue will host two signature drinks
Hart Attack – named after Carey Hart’s famous record-breaking mid-air handstand on a 250cc motorcycle, the drink will consist of Jameson, Red Bull, cranberry and a float of Jagermeister. “Sunday Bloody Sunday” – named after legendary U2 song, this will be the venue’s signature Bloody Mary concoction.
The 5,000 square-foot nightclub will hold 400-500 people, has 17 tables/booths in the club itself, and five more in the 24-hour Wasted Lounge. The unique sound system offers a full nightclub sound package and the ability for live performers to rock the house every night of the week.
Wasted Space will be open Wednesday through Sunday from 9 p.m. to 4 a.m. with live music two nights/week and DJ’s spinning the other nights. Cover charges will vary based on talent from about $10 to $30.
