Following the successful opening in Dubai Festival City, Hard Rock Café opened its second Dubai location, within the Dubai International Airport (DXB) in Terminal 3, Concourse B by Gate 25.

“The opening of Hard Rock Café DXB has been greatly anticipated and we are thrilled to expand our presence in a city that is buzzing with energy,” says Anibal Fernandez, vice president of franchise operations and development for Hard Rock International. “Hard Rock Café DXB not only elevates airport travellers’ dining options, but is also a destination in its own right, offering great food, iconic memorabilia and live performances.”

Spanning more than 5,125 sqft, Hard Rock Café DXB can seat up to 110 guests and features a state-of-the-art bar, intimate live music stage and Rock Shop, which includes a signature DXB collection of pins and shirts, among other city-specific merchandise. The new café also features unique décor and combines Arabic influences with Hard Rock’s globally recognised design, complemented by a selection of original and priceless music memorabilia from international artists. Artists and memorabilia highlighted throughout the café include a Versace shirt once worn by Prince, Jimi Hendrix’s fringed leather vest and Rihanna’s stylized mask worn for Harper’s Bazaar Arabia.

Guests of Hard Rock Cafe DXB can enjoy fresh, high-quality items from Hard Rock’s menu, including a selection of fan-favourite legendary burgers, fajitas, nachos and hot fudge brownies, alongside several new hot and cold items for travellers to grab and go. Early risers can also choose from unique breakfast selections at the new café. In addition to its food, Hard Rock Café’s extensive, award-winning drinks menu includes Hurricanes, Margaritas, signature favourites and Alternative Rock (alcohol-free) beverages, all available in Hard Rock’s souvenir, collectible glassware.

Since it was established in 1971, Hard Rock has been committed to a wide variety of philanthropic causes and activities around the world. In every Hard Rock city, the staff makes it a priority to become a valuable community partner and Hard Rock Café DXB looks forward to continuing this tradition.
