Hard Rock Cafe to Open in Aruba
Orlando, Fla., December 11, 2008 – Hard Rock International today announced it will open a Hard Rock Cafe in Aruba on Irausquin Boulevard at South Beach Center, Palm Beach. Scheduled to open on December 12th, Hard Rock Cafe Aruba, surrounded by sunny white beaches and unspoiled Caribbean surroundings, promises to be one of the area’s premier dining and entertainment venues. The Aruba cafe will be operated by Harocar Horeca Investments N.V., which boasts extensive experience in the restaurant and hospitality industry, including two existing cafe locations in nearby countries.

The Aruba cafe will be ideally located on the picturesque north side of the island, joining a number of renowned hotels and casinos. The 1,000-square-meter cafe will include both indoor and outdoor dining options, a vibrant bar, live concert area and Rock Shop offering Hard Rock’s limited-edition merchandise. Memorabilia from Hard Rock’s iconic collection will adorn the walls of Hard Rock Cafe Aruba, including items from many of the world’s most beloved and recognizable musicians, such as Prince, KISS, Jimmy Buffett, Shakira and many more.

"Aruba is one of the world’s premiere island destinations, situated in the culturally rich region of the Lesser Antilles," said Hamish Dodds, president and CEO of Hard Rock International. "We look forward to bringing the iconic Hard Rock brand and our unparalleled rock ‘n’ roll experience to this strategic Caribbean locale."

For more than 37 years, Hard Rock has offered guests classic American fare in a rock 'n' roll atmosphere. Hard Rock Cafe Aruba will be the ideal location for the brand’s world-famous cuisine, featuring Hard Rock’s Legendary Burgers and Smokehouse items. In addition to its food, Hard Rock offers unmatched specialty drinks from its award-winning bar menu, from Hurricanes and Margaritas, to its Alternative Rock menu (non-alcoholic beverages), featuring favorites like Wildberry Smoothies and Crushed Velvet "martinis."

Since it was established in 1971, Hard Rock has been committed to a wide variety of philanthropic causes and activities around the world, and Hard Rock Cafe Aruba will carry this causal commitment to the market. In every Hard Rock city, the staff makes it a priority to become a valuable community partner. In the form of funds, food and beverage, merchandise and man hours, Hard Rock Cafe Aruba will give back locally, as well as participate in global corporate philanthropic initiatives, ranging from breast cancer awareness programs, to rock icons' favorite causes through the annual Signature Series program.
