The property, situated on land owned by the Seminole Tribe of Florida, has a brilliant entrance studded with palm trees which line a lake punctuated in the middle by a fountain. These palms are uplit by hundreds of color-changing Ilumipod 18 IP often programmed to reflect holidays or seasons. They also complement the lighting used in the fountain for coordinated light, music and video shows.
Where the palm trees end, a promenade begins and affords a path for guests to walk lakeside past restaurants and landings which offer vantage points of the expansive grounds. Underneath this walkway, illuminating the retaining walls and the water below, are hundreds of Ilumipanel 48 IP wash lights which work in concert with the uplit trees as well as the fountain. Elsewhere in the entertainment complex, 45 Ilumiline 21 IP and Ilumiline 36 IP exterior wash lights can be found downlighting Café Martorano's, owned by famed restaurateur Steve Martorano. Fifteen Ilumipod 36 IP light up Bongos Cuban Café owned by superstars Gloria and Emilio Estefan.
The faÃ§ade of Hard Rock Live is accented by blocks of red, brick-like structures which project from its main wall and are lined by 40 Ilumiline 21 IP exterior wash lights. The entrance is marked by three sets of doors directly below the distinct Hard Rock Live sign and uplit by four Ilumipod Inground 36 IP wash lights. The outside path leading up to the Hard Rock Live features planters filled with palm trees, foliage and dozens of Ilumipod 18 IP exterior lights.
