Hard Rock Live Sacramento

Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Sacramento at Fire Mountain

Theatre Design • Interior Design • Theatrical Specialized Equipment

In August 2020, Scéno Plus was appointed by Hard Rock International to design the new Hard Rock Live Sacramento, a 2,500-seat transformable venue. The compact and intimate venue features a spacious flat floor complemented by a level of gallery floors dedicated to VIP guests, complete with dropped down balcony areas near the stage. Luminous arches and horizontal lines of light add dynamism to the space and give it a distinctive signature.

No compromises were made on the quality of sound, sightlines and show amenities when it came to complementing this Hard Rock Live's distinct rock 'n' roll and touring venue vibe. Moreover, there is not a single bad seat in the house and the acoustical qualities of the room paired with a cutting-edge L-Acoustics sound system provide unparalleled listening conditions.
