The new casino hotel is expected to open in 2026.

Hard Rock International (HRI) has teamed up with GEK TERNA Group on a construction project for its Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Athens. Both companies announced the partnership at a mutual event and said the new casino is expected to open in 2026.

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Athens will be located in the Athens Riviera. Construction is scheduled to start in early 2023. The two groups anticipate the building project will take about three years to complete.

Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen commented: “We are thrilled to announce the partnership with GEK TERNA Group and further expand Hard Rock’s reach across the globe in the great city of Athens.

“This development will bring over 3,000 jobs to the people of Greece and we look forward to bringing our unique brand of entertainment to provide an unparalleled experience for guests of all ages.”

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Athens will be home to a five-star luxury hotel with more than 1,000 guest rooms, premiere meeting and convention space, as well as a gaming floor with 200 tables and 2,000 gaming machines.

The suites will overlook the Parthenon or waterfront.

GEK TERNA Group Chairman and CEO George Peristeris said: “This development will create a premium tourism spot, expected to offer employment to thousands of people, yield significant revenues to the public sector, and add value to Greece’s brand.

“Along with Hard Rock we are realizing a private investment of over 1 billion euros, reaffirming our trust in Greece's prospects and potential.”

Hard Rock International (HRI) recently concluded celebrating five decades of music and food at its 253 casino, hotel and Rock Shops locations. The first Hard Rock Café opened its doors in London in 1971.
