Hard Rock Move and $2.5M Renovation Confirmed

Any doubt that company officials want to move the Hard Rock Cafe west on Beale Street to the Lansky Bros. building were all but erased with a building permit filed Monday.

A $2.5 million permit was pulled from the city of Memphis for renovations and remodeling to the interior and exterior of the building at 126 Beale. The spot is known to most simply as "the Lansky Bros. building" and was last the home of E.P.'s Delta Kitchen & Bar, which closed in 2008.

The permit names Belz Enterprises as the owner of the building and the tenant as Hard Rock Cafe International.

Memphis architects Hnedak Bobo Group will design the new space, according to the permit. W.G. Yates & Sons Construction Co. will build the new restaurant, bar, and rock and roll memorabilia showplace.

News of the move excited the Memphis press two weeks ago. Reporters had confirmed the news through Memphis Mayor A C Wharton's office and through former Beale Street manager John Elkington. Monday's building permit is the first confirmation of the planned move by company officials.

In the end, the slayer was captured after a wild chase by a posse of ordinary citizens. After his arrest, George Howard Putt told reporters, “I’d do it all again.” The murder spree began on the afternoon of August 14, 1969 ...
