Detroit’s Hard Rock Cafe Will Close This Weekend
You've got a few days left to stop in before the restaurant closes for good.
It was announced last year, around Thanksgiving, that the infamous Hard Rock Cafe in downtown Detroit was going to close when their lease ran out. Now, we have an official date: this Saturday, January 26th.
It opened back in 2003 across from Campus Martius Park and houses memorabilia from some of Detroit's most famous singers and musicians, including Eminem, Diana Ross, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations, and Madonna. It also had items from artists like Jimi Hendrix and The Eagles.
No word on what will take its place, but Hard Rock International released this statement:
Since opening the doors of Hard Rock Cafe Detroit in 2003, Hard Rock International has appreciated the opportunity to serve the city’s locals and guests. In January 2019, the lease for Hard Rock Cafe Detroit, located on Monroe Street across from Campus Martius Park, will expire. The location will close on Saturday, January 26, 2019, as a result. The brand remains committed to the city and is open to having another location within the market, if the right space can be identified.
