Hard Rock Cafe Cleveland Closes; Crews Remove Giant Guitar from Outer Facade

After 20 years, the Hard Rock Cafe Cleveland is officially no more. This morning crews were seen removing all signs of the former downtown staple after it closed Sunday. (There is still the Hard Rock Cafe at Northfield Park and Hard Rock Rocksino, of course, for all your Hard Rockin' needs.)

But the giant guitar, a staple of the riverfront for years, was on its way down and by end of the day will be gone forever.
