The Hard Rock Cafe is staying at Universal’s CityWalk in Orlando for the foreseeable future.
Hard Rock International today announced a lease renewal with Universal Orlando Resort to maintain Hard Rock Cafe’s presence in the Universal CityWalk entertainment complex for another 20 years, keeping the venue open at its current location through 2039.
Hard Rock Cafe Orlando stands in Universal Orlando CityWalk and features a multi-level Cafe, expansive Rock Shop and 3,000-person concert venue. The “Coliseum of Rock” is home to more pieces of music memorabilia than any other Hard Rock Cafe in the world.
The Hard Rock Cafe has been a part of Universal CityWalk since it opened to the public in 1999 as part of the expansion of the Resort. Fans may also remember the original Hard Rock Cafe, known for its guitar-shaped building, that was connected to Universal Studios Florida in the early 90’s.
“Hard Rock has been part of Universal CityWalk from the beginning and we are thrilled it will be with us into the future,” said Ric Florell, Executive Vice President of Resort Revenue Operations for Universal Orlando Resort. “It brings tremendous energy to CityWalk and we are very excited about our continued partnership.”
