New in town: Hard Rock Cafe Honolulu

Hard Rock Honolulu

Hard Rock Cafe Honolulu recently opened its new location at the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Beachwalk in Waikiki. Being the music fan I am, I had to drop by to check out the cool memorabilia on display.

The new location is vastly different than the old Hard Rock on Kapiolani Boulevard. While the previous space looked like a dark, Mainland pub, the new location is much more open, bright and reflective of local culture.
