MELAKA, March 30 (Bernama)-- The Hard Rock Cafe Melaka which is expected to

begin operations next September, can attract between 700,000 and one million

patrons monthly.

Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said the new tourism

product would be built at a cost of about RM15 million on a 1,858 sq m (20,000

sq ft) site on Jonker Walk here.

He said the restaurant will be a new landmark for Jonker Walk, a focus of

tourists from all over the world.

"The construction of the Hard Rock Cafe Melaka will certainly boost the

state tourism industry through the presence of more tourists, who want

entertainment, food as well as souvenirs offered by the cafe.

"Its presence is also proof of investor confidence in the rapid growth of

the Melaka tourism industry," he told reporters after witnessing a signing

ceremony between the Historical Melaka City Council(MBMB) and Sovereign

Creations Sdn Bhd in relation to the construction of the project.

At the ceremony, the MBMB was represented by the Mayor, Zainal Abu, and Hard

Rock Cafe Enterprise (M) Sdn Bhd chairman, Tan Sri Syed Yusoff Syed Nassir

signed for Sovereign Creations Sdn Bhd.

Meanwhile, Syed Yusoff said the Hard Rock Cafe Melaka will incorporate

classic architectural features, as its location is within the UNESCO world

heritage site.

"Hard Rock Cafe Melaka is the third cafe opened after Kuala Lumpur and

Penang. We are confident about the future of the Melaka tourism industry,'' he

added.

Syed Yusoff said the Hard Rock Cafe Melaka will have a car park, bikers

corner, local and western food, a corner selling souvenirs and other products

which are part of the global Hard Rock identity.-- BERNAMA
