The original location of the Hard Rock Cafe was adjacent to the Universal Studios park, and guests could enter the Cafe directly from within the park. The building when seen from above had the shape of a guitar. This photo was taken April 29, 2011. The yellow arrow here points to how the bridge of the guitar used to cross two roads at Universal to the Cafe’s parking lot. The restaurant itself was in the tall building on the body of the guitar. Part of what is now the Hard Rock Hotel is seen here – until 1998, this area was only a parking lot.
