Pattaya’s Hard Rock Hotel celebrated the 40th anniversary of the first-ever Hard Rock Cafe by inviting students from Ban Amphor School for lunch and cleaning up Pattaya Beach.
Twenty-one students enjoyed a meal and games with cafe staff, then picked up trash on the beach from Central Road to Soi 6. The day wrapped with “Rock Agent” games at the Hard Rock Hotel’s pool.

That evening, the Hard Rock Cafe hosted a party for staff and customers featuring a Hard Rock 40 cake, a show from the “Rock Agent” team, beer-drinking contest, burger-eating contest and music.
The June 14 celebration marks the day of the first Hard Rock Cafe’s opening in 1971 by Peter Morton and Isaac Tigrett. There are 130 branches of the Hard Rock Cafe – three in Thailand – and 10 Hard Rock hotels
