Are you ready to rock? That’s the question they asked as they swung open the doors to one of the newest and hippest entertainment facilities in town. The new Hard Rock Casino Vancouver, formerly known as the Boulevard Casino and Red Robinson Theatre, has been given a major facelift. There’s new bars, restaurants, gaming areas and more. The trip alone is worth it just to see the impressive collection of music and movie memorabilia which decorate the walls everywhere. At the opening night gala party, invited guests and VIPs walked the red carpet as a guitar player cranked out riffs suspended from the ceiling. As a long lined formed outside, guests were entertained with a guitar flash mob, fireworks and then two opening night concerts featuring Hedley and 54-40. Lots of North Shore faces and VIPs made the trip to help celebrate.
