Glasgow should have a Hard Rock Cafe

Postby Darren » Thu Aug 28, 2008 2:47 pm

I've noticed that Edinburgh is the only Scottish city with a Hard Rock Cafe ( i could be wrong) but i'm wondering why Glasgow doesn't have one i think it would look good to have a HRC in Argyle Street or The Merchant City

Don't you think there are enough rip off joints in Glasgow and peddlars of over priced beer in Glasgow already?
238 to 127. All in all a good afternoon's work

Really? I would be delighted to see those kind of places getting the boot.

Trouble is, they're a hard rock to crack.

Aye, I suppose you're between a rock and a hard place with one of those franchises.




I think we've exhausted this.

Welcome to HG Darren ! I do think you have a point most cities in the world have an HRC, I think Glasgow could really benefit from one. As much as I agree with Ony's statement that their are enough rip off joints in Glasgow, there is benefits' especially if you locate it in the Merchant City. The HRC could act as a big magnet removing all the American tourists from all the other restaurants therefore freeing up a table for myself ! :D

However on a real note HRC's do actually do quite well for a cities brand awareness especially with their line of T-Shirts which can be seen all over the world I think Glasgow is fully deserving of being on that map.

As I recall, there was a plan to have one about 10-15 years ago when the proposed Warner multiplex was mooted for the car parks at the back of the St Enoch Centre, a plan which never came to anything.

I think I've still got the Evening Times article in my personal sad bastard archive of cinema shit, I'll have a look.

*EDIT* - although that may have been a Planet Hollywood, my memory ain't what it was....

I misread the title there. I thought a new gay club was opening.

Around 1983. (A little bit political! True though.)
