Replacing the space occupied by long-time party nightclub Floyd's, the 17,500-square-foot restaurant features American casual dining in a rock 'n' roll setting. It has some notable twists on its brand: It's the first with gambling and the first with a burger butcher shop, with its signature Ybor City Burger (essentially a mashup of a Cuban sandwich and a burger). The cafe also features the memorabilia that the Hard Rock Cafe is known for, now with an interactive component: You can explore the chain's extensive collection using massive touch-screens.
It will be sixth Hard Rock Cafe in Florida, joining others in Miami, Key West, Orlando, Destin and at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood.
