The New Hard Rock Cafe Memphis is on the brink of opening July 3, 2014. But before the doors open at the new location at 126 Beale Street, Hard Rock’s Music and Memorabilia Historian Jeff Nolan gave the media a tour of the new location and some of the history that will be on displace in the Hard Rock Cafe. The old Hard Rock Cafe Memphis was located at 315 Beale Street. I have no doubt that this Hard Rock cafe will be exceptionally busy. To cope with being so busy and to enable a more succinct managing of the business, it might prove wise to take advantage of mobile development tools. These can be found at the Salesforce website. The move closer to the Mississippi River has the worldwide establishment on the corner of Beale and Second.
Nolan gave the media members some insight on historic artifacts and offered background on the iconic pieces chosen to grace the walls of this exciting new dining and entertainment venue. Nolan will tell the unique story behind each piece of the cafe’s music museum-like collection, which have been handpicked by Hard Rock’s expert team of memorabilia designers, led by David Holle.
From the Elvin Room to the downstairs gift shop, the new Hard Rock Cafe features Memphis Music history. Part of that history feature one of the outfits worn by Millington’s own Justin Timberlake when he was a part of N’Sync.
Taking residence in the 108-year-old structure at the northwest corner of Second and Beale, the new Hard Rock Cafe Memphis will occupy 13,604 square-feet of space and will seat 178 guests. Hard Rock Cafe Memphis’ relocation leverages the iconic building’s history to showcase the brand’s one-of-a-kind blend of music, entertainment and authentic scratch-based cuisine. The location will feature Hard Rock’s new design style and latest technology. The venue will include the latest in sound capabilities and a larger stage space, which will support an ongoing live music program. Committed to supporting music and musicians around the globe, Hard Rock International hosted more than 26,000 live music events worldwide in 2013.
