Tulsa’s New Joint

There’s a $20 million room coming to Tulsa, Okla., where the Cherokee Nation’s Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is gearing up to open The Joint Tulsa this fall.

The 2,700-capacity venue will feature theatre seating, VIP suites and a lounge.

Venue programming will include concerts, boxing, mixed martial arts and comedy shows, Cherokee Nation Entertainment CEO David Stewart told Tulsa World.

“You can’t have Hard Rock without music,” he said. “We feel it’s an important addition to the property, to give the whole Hard Rock experience to the customer.”

Stewart added that the Joint could fill a niche for the city.

“We think this will provide a more intimate setting and something that is unique to Tulsa,” Stewart added. “We think it’s going to be a regional draw. There isn’t a facility like this in the region.”

The initial performances are expected to be announced in the coming months.
