Hard Rock Cafe Revamped - A Venue of Note
The Hard Rock Cafe at Siam Square in Bangkok has unveiled a radical new look. The entire enterprise has been completely refurbished using recycled materials in line with the chain's "Save The Planet" motto.
Red, black and silver are the predominant colours, and the front of the building has been re-designed to resemble a sound wave. A balcony now gives diners the chance to sample an al fresco setting with views of the vibrant neighbourhood.

Guitars used by Cheap Trick, Van Halen, Kiss, Heart, Motley Crue and The Beatles are now strategically placed around the restaurant, alongside outfits that adorned artists such as Elvis Presley, Elton John, Boy George and Mariah Carey.
The Rock Shop is home to a new range of apparel especially designed to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of The Hard Rock Cafe - the first endeavour was opened in London in 1971.
There are now 133 cafes in 51 countries, all providing a unique atmosphere, serving American fare in a rock n roll environment. Memorabilia varies from place to place, but all are genuine items that celebrate music legends as well as up and coming talent.
