Sacramento Hard Rock Live

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. Although the space clearly has a rock ’n’ roll & touring venue vibe to it, no compromises were made on the quality of sound, sightlines and show amenities.

The compact and intimate venue is characterized by a large flat floor framed by a level of gallery floors dedicated to VIP guests 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.

Illuminated arches circle the Hard Rock Sacramento performance hall.
