We’re #2! Nice is the site chosen for France’s second Hard Rock Café, the first being in Paris. Situated at 5, Promenade des Anglais, next to the Office de Tourisme, the two floor, 557 square meter café will open in mid-October, 2013, employ around 70 people, and seat 200 clients in the restaurant and 30 on the terrace.
There will also be a bar and and “Rock Shop” boutique, selling iconic tee-shirts and rock inspired articles. Nice’s café will have an interactive wall with technology allowing fans to tactilely view rock memorabilia and virtually visit other Hard Rock Cafés around the world.
A jacket worn by Justin Timberlake, a red accessory item of Rihanna, a 1970 costume worn by James Brown, and a drumstick used by the drummer of Guns & Roses are just a few of the rock ‘n roll iconic items that will be decoratively displayed at the café.
Since 1971, Hard Rock Café has been associated with philanthrophic activities around the world. Hard Rock Café Nice will continue that philosophy, aligned with breast cancer awareness and other causes chosen by the greatest pop rock artists, through their Tee-shirt Signature Series program, as well as supporting local associations.
