NEW BUFFALO — Four Winds announced Monday it has partnered with Hard Rock International to bring a Hard Rock Cafe to Four Winds New Buffalo next summer.
Hard Rock Cafe Four Winds complements a previously announced expansion at Four Winds New Buffalo that will also be completed in the summer of 2012, including a new 1,600-seat, multi-use event center and a nine-story 250- room hotel tower.
With 172 venues in 51 countries, including 135 cafes and 15 hotels and casinos, Hard Rock International is one of the world’s most recognized brands.
The 12,000-square-feet Hard Rock Cafe Four Winds will be located adjacent to the gaming floor and will span two levels with seating for more than 275 and a performance stage.
The new Hard Rock Cafe Four Winds will feature rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia.
Hard Rock’s menu has something for all appetites, including classic American food made from scratch, such as legendary burgers, Smokehouse favorites and sandwiches and salads.
“Hard Rock is an internationally renowned brand that we are proud to add to our already outstanding mix of dining and entertainment options at Four Winds New Buffalo,” said Matt Harkness, general manager of Four Winds Casinos.
“Guests will enjoy Hard Rock’s unique ambiance of live music and famous pieces of music history while dining on all-American cuisine. We are very excited to be adding Hard Rock Cafe in conjunction with the event center and new hotel tower in the summer of next year.”
Four Winds News Buffalo’s nine-story hotel tower will contain a mix of suites and standard rooms furnished in the same style as its existing 165 hotel rooms.
The multi-use event center will be located next to the casino floor and can be configured for concerts, conferences and special events.
