Another Hard Rock Cafe is set to open in the summer of 2009 near the MGM Grand casino hotel. It will be a 41,000 square foot facility with the restaurant, gift shop, and a 370-seat concert venue.
The key location on the Strip is intended to boost the traffic and sales. The original location will continue to draw a crowd but the Strip location will make the cafe a flagship.
There are 123 cafes and 8 casino-hotels in the Hard Rock name around the world.
