New portrayal to the history and spirit of classic and contemporary rock ‘n roll were added to this project. The 140,000-SF building houses the Hard Rock Live concert venue and the world’s largest Hard Rock Cafe. Before entering the building, guests promenade across a unique guitar-shaped staircase entrance, a retro interpretation of the Roman Coliseum. The restaurant accommodates 800 for dining (650 indoors and 150 outdoors) with three themed function rooms contributing to the atmosphere. Design Development was design architect on this project.
