The impressive project will seat approximately three hundred people and as standard, will include a bar along with ‘Rock Shop’ offering limited-edition merchandise and not forgetting to mention, an impressive open-air terrace.
The president and CEO, Hamish Dodds, of the franchise was quoted to say, “Marbella is one of Europe’s premiere and most exclusive Mediterranean destinations situated on the scenic Costa del Sol.”
He added, “With its rich Andalusian history and diverse cultural offerings, we are proud to call Marbella home to Spain’s newest Hard Rock Cafe.”
