Hard Rock Cafe in Hong Kong will close its doors on 24 November as the current economic situation forced it to shut down, affecting about 60 workers in the process. The date of closing coincides the end of its contract lease to its premises in Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui.
This comes after 14 years of operations in Hong Kong. Hard Rock Cafe Hong Kong was established in November 13, 1994.
The decision to shut down its only shop in Hong Kong does not mean we won't see HRC anymore. Its officials are very open to opening its shop once the economy swings back to boom times. Who knows the next time they open, they will occupy a bigger space and hopefully leasing it at lower rates.
At the moment, since the closing of shop is imminent, you can rush to its Tsim Sha Tsui branch to get your Hong Kong-themed shirts and accessories. Nobody knows if the shop will ever open again and the only way to find those Hard Rock Cafe shirts are at Mong Kok's night market or Stanley Market.
