Rock and Roll meets Old World Melaka
Heritage street Jonkers Walk in Melaka Malaysia has a new cool tenant – Hard Rock Malacca!
Hard Rock Cafe is now OPEN to public from October 2011.
The multi-million ringgit Hard Rock Melaka will no doubt add spice to old world Melaka.
The international restaurant chain is famous for its classic American food and live music. Central to the Hard Rock brand is the rock and roll theme. The iconic cafe is characterized by giant guitars and Harley motorbikes.
Many do not know that Hard Rock is a big collector of musical memorabilia. Its musical museum consists of more than 70,000 items and still growing! Some of these items include guitars belonging to Eric Clapton and Jon Bon Jovi; and lyrics hand written by John Lennon.
These memorabilia are displayed on rotation basis at more than 150 Hard Rock premises in over 50 countries.
Melaka is regarded as the birthplace of Malaysia, largely due to its historical achievements along the ancient spice route.
Will this new landmark lure in the visitors? I certainly think so…
