Two new attractions at the Pearl River Resort in Neshoba County are now open. Mississippi Choctaw Chief Philip Martin smashed a guitar Friday at the debut of the new Hard Rock Beach Club and a nine-acre private beach known as Clearwater Key.
The Beach Club is a new concept for Hard Rock Cafe International of Orlando, Florida, known for its worldwide chain of restaurants. It features a volleyball area, heated pool with underwater music speakers, open-air porches, tiki bar, live performance stage and full-service restaurant.
The restaurant features many of the Hard Rock Cafe menu items. Resort officials say the eight-acre Clearwater Key includes a man-made white-sand beach, which can accommodate 2,500 guests. The beach has a cafe and souvenir shop.
