Hard Rock Casino Coming to Sioux City, Iowa

Hard Rock Casino Coming to Sioux City, Iowa

The $118.5 million Iowa casino, which will be located in downtown Sioux City and will incorporate the historic Battery Building, will replace the Argosy Sioux City gambling boat, owned by Penn National Gaming.

Penn National, along with two other casino operators, also entered bids for the land-based Iowa casino but lost out to the Hard Rock project. Penn National is now the first Iowa casino operator forced out of a market through competitive since 1989.

The new casino is expected to open in summer 2014.
