Joe Bravo remembers weekends before Rehab.
“You partied at night,” he says. “[Hard Rock] was so ahead of its time. Rehab built the pool industry in Las Vegas.”

Bravo, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino’s director of nightlife and daylife, is busy with “Prehab,” a week of preparation leading up to the grand opening weekend.
“It’s a five-and-a-half-acre complex,” he reminds me. With a roster of about 225 employees on any given day, there is more to do than keep the champagne cool.
