Hard Rock International has teamed up with GEK TERNA Group to build and manage Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Athens. It is scheduled to open in 2026.
Yesterday was a joint event between the groups. A casino and integrated resort will be constructed in Athens Riviera’s iconic region.
It will include a 5-star hotel with a gaming area, an event space and meeting room. There will also be a menu and high-end shopping promenade.
“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,” said Hard Rock International Chairman Jim Allen.
“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.”
There will be 200 gaming tables, 2,000 machines and an observation tower. The venue will also include more than 1,000 rooms and suites with views of the Parthenon or waterfront.
Construction is anticipated to start in 2023. It will be completed within three years.
GEK TERNA Group Chairman and CEO George Peristeris commented: “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 realising a private investment of over 1 billion euros, reaffirming our trust in Greece’s prospects and potential.”
