In what could be term a match made in heaven, the Hard Rock Cafe has signed a lease in the Faneuil Hall Marketplace, taking over the location of The Rack nightclub and filling the vacant space once occupied by Pizzeria Uno.
According to the Boston Business Journal, “the Orlando, Fla. company said it will occupy the total 16,000-square-foot-building and has plans for a 400-seat-restaurant, a concert area for live music and a retail area for Hard Rock products.”
The Hard Rock Cafe has operated at 131 Clarendon St. in the Back Bay for 17 years, and plans to take over the lease at the new location in February 2007. It will close its Back Bay location when it opens the Clinton Street store in the summer of 2007.
