New Yankee Stadium Getting a Hard Rock Cafe

Posted by jhochstat on June 22, 2008

The NY Post reported on Thursday that the new Yankee Stadium would be getting a Hard Rock Cafe.

Here is part of the article:

The new Yankee Stadium opened its doors and held its first official press conference yesterday, where it was announced the Hard Rock Café will inhabit part of the ground floor of the stadium, along with a new joint-venture steakhouse, NYY Steak.

Both restaurants will be open to ticket-holders and non-ticket-holders alike, and will be located at the end of a 31,000-square-foot glass-enclosed concourse called “the great hall.” The field cannot be viewed from either restaurant, and as for a lot of the new stadium, the great hall’s main purpose is to serve non-baseball events, lined with concession stands and high-definition televisions.

“This whole area is going to be a true high-definition screen,” Yankees COO Lonn Trost said yesterday as he stood and pointed at a 290-foot curving wall. “We’re trying to utilize all the resources we can so the fans can mill about and have the best experience possible.”
