This half-a-century old resto-bar is a brand that is synonymous with music, great food, and entertainment. Its global appeal is second to none in the restaurant business, with crowd-pulling venues peppered all over the world. Although Hard Rock Cafe is known primarily for its ode to music, classic American platters, and pioneering the exhibition of historic rock and roll memorabilia, it also boasts of its large-scale social responsibilities. Bringing its own vibe to different societies and engaging in the exchange of cultural traits, Hard Rock Cafe is proud of its community-driven outlook.
Building upon its all-embracing attitude and inclusive growth, the Kolkata outlet of Hard Rock Cafe is doing something exceptiornal this month of love. The themed restaurant’s tryst with Kolkata has turned out to be a charming affair. The city of connoisseurs and bon vivants lapped up the sophisticated overtones of this classic restaurant chain. Hard Rock Cafe’s policy of giving back to the community has won many a heart, and its latest initiative reveals the percipient and broad-minded nature of the renowned global restaurant chain.
“Love All Serve All.” The City of Joy’s outlet proudly parades this message on the wall near the entrance. Love knows no bounds! Its firm belief in inclusivity and the endless possibilities of love has manifested in two novel items in its menu that will be available on the 13th, 14th, and 15th of February. The Rainbow Cake and All American Daiquiri will celebrate love in all forms and kinds. There’s more to it. Ten percent of proceeds from such sales will go to the community outreach program belonging to the LGBTQ, the Kolkata Pride.
All American Daiquiri This cocktail has red, blue, and white layers that have an amalgamation of white rum and Blue Curaçao, topped with a variety of additional sweet ingredients like grenadine and cream of coconut, topped with whipped cream and cherry.
Rainbow Cake This multi-coloured marvel of moist sponge layers and the lightly whipped white frosting is no illusion. The exquisite layers of moist, colourful sponge are sandwiched with a lightly whipped icing. This vibrant, six-tiered rainbow creation will leave you yearning for more.
According to the Director of Hard Rock Cafe, Kolkata, Ms. Vanita Bajoria, “Kolkata has always welcomed such initiatives with open arms, and Hard Rock Cafe has always been an advocate of social causes. Our forward-thinking initiatives will inspire people to make a change and create a place for one and all. That’s what Hard Rock Cafe thrives to attain.”
