Hard Rock Cafe finally comes to Austria

The first Hard Rock Cafe in Austria is set to open in Vienna's Inner Stadt, according to a statement released by the company on Wednesday.

Hard Rock Cafe is a chain of American style restaurants that was founded in London in 1971 and now operates 140 branches in over 50 countries.

The Austrian restaurant will open this summer in Rotentrumstraße 25 where tricaffe is currently located, although the company has not specified an exact date as of yet.

Further details will be given on 13 May at a press conference, which will also include a performance from Vienna Boys' Choir and a visit from the company's CEO Hamish Dodds.

Rumours over the opening of a Hard Rock Cafe in Vienna first came about as long ago as 2003, when the then vice Chancellor Norbert Steger (FPÖ) said he would bring the restaurant to Austria. For years, it was apparently held up as they waited for money to come from Saudi Sheikh bin Laden - one of the half-siblings of the now dead Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden.

The company have said that this branch is likely to remain the only one here in Austria for a long time.
