We were treated to a ‘Hard hat tour’ of the soon to be opened Hard Rock Cafe in Ibiza this morning (28/05/13) On arrival we were each given a bag containing our very own Ibiza Hard Rock Cafe hard hat, a nice touch seeing as the venue was still being worked on in preparation for its opening in early June. Whilst we did not see the cafe in its finished state or see the menu, we were given a guided tour of the extensive memorabilia collection that is displayed in cases and frames on the walls.

The pieces have all been handpicked by Hard Rock’s expert team of memorabilia designers, and comprise articles of clothing, instruments, discs and signed photographs. Highlights from the collection include a customized guitar for Tony Iommi from Black Sabbath; an early album from Bruce Springsteen ‘Darkness on the edge of town'; a bra top worn onstage by Madonna; a jumpsuit, headphones and Vestax turntable from the Beastie Boys ‘DJ Mix Master Mike'; outfits from the Black Eyed Peas; and jackets from John Lennon, Elton John, The Who and Ron Wood from The Rolling Stones.

Also featured are clothes from Janet Jackson, Slash, Joey Kramer from Aerosmith and shoes worn by Eric Clapton and Brian May from Queen. There are also are items from Julio Iglesias, Pat Benetar, Shakira, John 5, Eminem, Tom Petty and Metallica.

Whilst we did not experience the completed environment, the press release tells us that, “in true Ibiza fashion the newly-designed cafe features cutting-edge décor, state-of-the art sound systems and innovative staging for live music. The new cafe also incorporates some of Hard Rock’s newest technology and boasts the Rock WallTM Solo, a 52-inch interactive touch screen that enables guests to virtually explore, access and expand Hard Rock’s famed music memorabilia collection in locations around the globe with a single touch”.

The Hard Rock Cafe is situated in the Paseo Vara de Rey in the heart of Ibiza town, on the corner opposite The Montesol Hotel. It has more than 500 square metres of space, with seating for 130 inside the restaurant, and an additional 98 in the main terrace area outside. It is due to open at the beginning of June 2013.
