Hard Rock Cafe just completed a soup-to-nuts renovation of Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia, located in the heart of the Convention Center District. And in late spring, Hard Rock Cafe will open its first outpost in the Last Frontier.
The Philly project includes all new decor (other than the rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia), new outdoor seating, an expanded bar and lounge area, and a new private event area with a private bar.
The restaurant also unveiled the new Philadelphia Room designed to reflect the train shed theme of the Reading Terminal Head House the cafe is housed in. The space has two massive retractable windows and repro old school lighting in the arched ceiling, with room for 120 seated or 200 for receptions.
In the main bar area, you can organize sit-down meals for 150 or parties for 400, with a permanent stage for entertainment and presentations. Or, it’s a great place to just go hang out with colleagues after your meetings, because the venue schedules over 150 live shows yearly.
In Alaska, the new 13,600-sf, 275-seat Hard Rock Cafe Anchorage will feature the most advanced tech ever for Hard Rock Cafe, with things like the “Rock Wall Solo” video screen. The monitor will provide a virtual exploration of the world’s most famous rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia.
Pre-opening, the restaurant/bar held a content among locals to create artwork for clothing and jewelry sold in the Hard Rock Cafe store. The new Hard Rock will be located in the heart of downtown Anchorage.
