Hard Rock Cafe Returns to Atlantic City

Cafe Set to Reopen in New Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City

The new Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City will open its doors on Atlantic City’s iconic boardwalk this June! The 22,360-square-foot, state-of-the-art cafe, located at 1000 Boardwalk inside of the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City is slated to open on Thursday, June 28 and will highlight Hard Rock’s new design style and latest technology. Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City is the only cafe in New Jersey and has been present in Atlantic City for more than 20 years. 

“The Atlantic City Boardwalk has been home to Hard Rock Cafe for more than two decades and we’re excited to continue serving locals and guests in our newly redesigned location,” said Stephen Judge, President of Cafe Operations for Hard Rock International. “This new location will allow us to welcome more guests in a larger space and is sure to be a Boardwalk fixture for many years to come!”

Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City includes seating for 416 guests with two dining rooms, two stages and a seasonal patio. Floor to ceiling windows in one of the feature dining rooms provides an incredible boardwalk dining experience. Additionally, the new cafe has a separate event space that can seat 120 people and accommodate 300 people standing.

Handpicked pieces of memorabilia from Hard Rock’s iconic collection will be on full display at Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City. Guests can feast their eyes on treasured belongings from legendary and contemporary musicians from around the world, including one of Lady Gaga’s hand embellished outfits, an outfit worn by David Bowie for his last appearance as Ziggy Stardust, boots worn by Michael Jackson during his “Bad” tour and Prince’s multicolored long-sleeve chiffon shirt worn during his “Lovesexy” tour. Additionally, Slash’s showstopping 2007 Harley Davidson VRSCDX Night Rod Special motorcycle will be prominently displayed near the cafe entrance.

Guests visiting the cafe can enjoy fresh, high-quality items from Hard Rock’s world-renowned menu, including a selection of mouthwatering Legendary Burgers, each featuring unique toppings, savory sauces and rich, melted cheeses, and Smokehouse ribs, chicken and pork slowly cooked to juicy, tender perfection. In addition to its food, Hard Rock Cafe’s extensive, award-winning drinks menu includes Hurricanes, Margaritas, signature favorites and Alternative Rock (alcohol-free) beverages, all available in Hard Rock’s souvenir, collectible glassware.

Hard Rock Cafe Atlantic City will also serve as the area’s go-to destination for live music and entertainment events. The cafe will regularly host performances by world renowned artists like Elio Villafranca and Nat Adderly Jr. during jazz brunch on Sundays; a live band karaoke on Sunday nights with Arlene’s World Famous Live Karaoke Band; and blues nights on Mondays with musicians Eric Gales, Samantha Fish and Jeremiah Johnson and more.

In addition, the Atlantic City cafe’s Rock Shop will offer music-inspired items, as well as collectible Hard Rock Cafe merchandise. Fans can acquire exclusive Atlantic City-specific merchandise and much-coveted signature pins at this retail location. The retail store is one of two Rock Shops located inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Atlantic City.

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 Cafe Atlantic City looks forward to continuing this tradition.
