Opened in autumn 2012, the Hard Rock Cafe branch in Finland’s capital Helsinki has closed its doors yesterday (3 January 2023). Currently, only one Google post about Hard Rock Cafe Helsinki and its closure can be found on the world wide web, published on the day of the closure. The official profiles of Hard Rock Cafe Helsinki on facebook and on Instagram seemed to have been deleted also on the day of the closure, if not earlier.
“Since opening the doors of Hard Rock Cafe® Helsinki in 2012, we have enjoyed playing a role in the city’s dining culture. On 3rd of January 2023, Hard Rock Cafe Helsinki located at Aleksanterinkatu 21, 00100 Helsinki, Finland will close.”– Hard Rock Cafe
In said post, it is also stated that the operations of the Rock Shop, located downstairs of Hard Rock Cafe Helsinki, will be continued:
“The Rock Shop will remain open. Helsinki remains an important market for Hard Rock international, and we are exploring the possibility of alternate locations within the city. Employees of Hard Rock Cafe Helsinki will have the ability to transfer to another location, should they choose to continue their careers with Hard Rock. For additional information on Hard Rock International, including other locations, please visit www.hardrock.com.”– Hard Rock Cafe
