Iconic nightspot turns 25

WHEN the first Hard Rock Cafe (HRC) in Malaysia opened its doors in Jalan Sultan Ismail, Kuala Lumpur on Nov 9, 1991, someone snapped a picture of the queue lining up to enter, in all its early nineties fashion glory, tucked-in shirts, hair and all.

Fast forward 25 years later, the facade has changed somewhat, with an al fresco section, the long bar has been shifted to another part of the floor while the interior and rock memorabilia were also changed during a 2008 revamp.
