MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – WMBF News got a sneak peek inside the new Hard Rock Café opening at Celebrity Square at Broadway at the Beach.
An employee at Hard Rock Café said the question everyone is asking is, 'When are you moving?' It is a question they don't have an answer to yet, except it will happen any day now.
Construction on the warehouse façade continues along with work on the new Hard Rock Café in Celebrity Circle.
That Hard Rock Cafe employee said workers have begun moving things into the new restaurant, which is able to seat more than 500 people. However, the opening is tentative due to last-minute work.
Architects at Charleston's LS3P Associates are responsible for the new warehouse facade designs at Broadway at the Beach and the design of the Dave and Buster's, which will go in the area where the Hard Rock Pyramid currently stands.
Lead project designer Brian Wurst said the plan is to demolish the current building as soon as Hard Rock is out. That will make room for Dave & Busters, which is set to open next spring.
Among the items on display at the new Hard Rock are a letter from The Who's Pete Townsend sent in 1977 that mentions Meher Baba, the spiritual advisor behind the Meher Baba Spiritual Center along the Myrtle Beach oceanfront. Learn more about that center here.
