Brand Announces Relocation Plans for New Orleans Cafe

Orlando, Fla., April 30, 2012 – Hard Rock brings its music, memorabilia and rock 'n' roll flair to Bourbon Street!  Hard Rock International is pleased to announce plans to bring the brand’s one-of-a-kind blend of music, iconic memorabilia, and authentic scratch-based cuisine to the heart of The French Quarter.

The new 10,000-square foot cafe is scheduled to reopen late 2012, at 125 Bourbon St. on the corner of Bourbon and Iberville Streets in New Orleans, in the Chateau Bourbon Hotel. The new location will replace the current Hard Rock Cafe; located at 418 N. Peters St. Hard Rock has been serving New Orleans locals and visitors alike since opening its doors in 1987. The Chateau Bourbon is scheduled for re-branding as the “Hyatt French Quarter” in Mid-May.

04.30: On this day in 1933 William Hugh “Willie” Nelson was born. Holy cow, what a guy. We could go on and on and on about Willie, but we shan't. Instead, we'll just say that Willie is one of the most down-to-earth, vibrant, original and amazing guys ever to command a stage. And he smoked a joint on the roof of the White House. Nuff said. If you can name the president who invited him there, without looking it up, you are a true fan. Happy birthday, Willie! We love you, man!

05.01: On this day in 1967 Elvis Presley married Priscilla Beaulieu in Las Vegas. And they lived happily ever after.

04.24: On this day in 1992 David Bowie married fashion model Iman in Switzerland. And they are still married! This shatters our theory about the unspoken rocker/supermodel marriage rule of "use 'em and lose 'em" (see Billy Joel/Christie Brinkley, Axl Rose/Erin Everly, Rod Stewart/Rachel Hunter, et al). But, in this instance, at least, it's okay because this coupleis probably one of the most stunning creatures ever to wander Earth. They'll probably rule us all one day soon, and we're okay with that. We'll forgive them their transgressions against the unspoken rule.

04.26: On this day in 1982 Rod Stewart was mugged and robbed at gun point in broad daylight on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles. The object of the gunman’s affection? Stewart’s $50,000 Porsche.
