The Hard Rock Cafe has arrived in Phnom Penh. What can customers expect from a visit to the legendary restaurant and rock ’n’ roll bar?
Since it’s arrival in Siem Reap in 2014, the Hard Rock Cafe has proved to be more than just a cafe. Coffee shop and eatery, bar and live music venue, the establishment even offers a rock shop selling branded items. Now the Hard Rock Cafe is bringing its multipurpose magic from Temple Town all the way to the heart of the Kingdom.
Hard Rock has been serving Phnom Penh since November 2017 from its new location in Exchange Square near the iconic Tonle Sap riverfront. Anibal Fernandez, Vice President of Franchise Operations for Hard Rock International, said “Hard Rock has been looking forward to opening its second location in Cambodia after many successful years of operating in Angkor Siem Reap. We could not have asked for a better location to showcase our unique dining experience as Phnom Penh is a well-known emerging business and leisure destination within South East Asia.”
When it comes to food and drink, customers of Hard Rock are in for a treat. From their extensive menu you can choose from their fan-favorite Legendary Burgers, each offering unique toppings, savory sauces and melted cheeses, or select one of Hard Rock’s Smokehouse offerings which include slowly cooked ribs, chicken and pork cooked to juicy, tender perfection.
The Hard Rock drinks menu offers Hurricanes, Margaritas, signature favorites and Alternative Rock (alcohol-free) beverages, all available in Hard Rock’s souvenir, collectible glassware. The restaurant starts serving from 11am until late, while the bar on first floor opens from 11am until 1am.
In addition to the bar service, Hard Rock also has a Rock Shop that offers music-inspired items as well as collectible Hard Rock Cafe merchandise, including clothes and even musical instruments. Fans of the cafe from all over the world can get their hands on exclusive Phnom Penh-specific merchandise and the much-coveted signature pins at this store.
Not to mention the famous collection of music memorabilia that the Hard Rock Cafe will house, including pieces from international artists such as Katy Perry, Madonna, Jimi Hendrix, Elvis and Maroon Five. Additionally, the cafe will feature memorabilia from local musicians such as Meas Soksophea, Nikki Nikki, Sok Seylalin and Zono to honor the Cambodian music scene for local customers.
The Cafe also provides event services for those that wish to host all kinds of events, from birthday parties to company shindigs. With the great staff and professional event planning experience at Hard Rock, you can expect the perfect evening. Even meetings are accommodated for in the VIP lounge, which holds up to 20 guests with a comfortable dining table plus a 85-inch flat-screen TV for presentations (or karaoke if it’s more of a party mood!).
With venues in 73 countries, including 178 cafes and 24 hotels, Hard Rock is one of the world’s most-recognized companies. Now Phnom Penh has joined the legend to host this epic rock ’n’ roll venue.
