(via Hard Rock Cafe):
I used to tend bar at the (2) Hard Rock Cafe(s) in Orlando and was a huge fan of the one at Citywalk in Osaka so I'm happy to see they're finally making out here to the birthplace of some great music.
"Hard Rock International today announced it will open a Hard Rock Cafe in the heart of downtown Seattle. Scheduled to open in July 2009, Hard Rock Cafe Seattle will be located on 116 Pike Street, less than one mile away from the Seattle Center Arena, where rock legend Jimi Hendrix performed at his first headlining gig. The Seattle cafe, situated near the famous Pike Place Market, will be one of the city’s premier dining and entertainment destinations, with two floors and more than 14,000-square feet of space, including spacious seating, a unique open-air rooftop deck and Rock Shop featuring Hard Rock’s limited-edition merchandise. In addition to a state-of-the-art facility, the cafe will also feature rock 'n' roll memorabilia from Hard Rock's iconic collection."
