MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — It seems another Block E business has bit the dust.

Officials say the Hard Rock Cafe, located at 600 Hennepin Ave. S. in Minneapolis, will close its doors on Sept. 30.

Hard Rock International said they are fully committed to the city of Minneapolis and look forward to potential future projects within the city, according to a released statement.

The company also states, “We have run a successful business in Minneapolis, but the current site has created challenges that prevent us from continuing to operate at this location.”

The Hard Rock Cafe opened in 2002.

The Shout House and the AMC Block E Theater remain some of the only businesses left.

“Our strategy over the past year and a half has been to reposition and re-tenant the building. We continue to work towards a revitalized Block E, contribute to a successful Hennepin Avenue and carefully and methodically determine the best possible uses for the site,” said Phillip Jaffe, partner at Alatus LLC, which owns the Block E center.
