THE Hard Rock Cafe will open its first restaurant in Malaga capital at the Muelle Uno open-air shopping centre next to the port.
The new restaurant will occupy a large space, or roughly 1,500 square meters, opposite the entrance to the Pompidou Centre, according to local media sources.
It was rumoured that the chain would take the space known as the ‘golden corner’, the largest space in the shopping centre where the Artsenal cultural project is based.
However, executives eventually decided to take over the space where the ‘100 Montaditos’ restaurant is currently located, which will move to a different site in the complex.
The work looks set to take nine months to complete, and the restaurant is scheduled to open in autumn 2018.
The opening will mark the second establishment for the restaurant chain in Malaga province, as they already have a site in Marbella.
The Hard Rock Cafe chain is one of the most renowned restaurants brands in the world, and already has eight restaurants in locations across Spain, including Seville, Barcelona, Valencia and Madrid.
The restaurants are known for featuring memorabilia from pop culture icons, including musicians and film stars.
