The Rock N Roll McDonald's (formerly The Original Rock 'N Roll McDonald's) was a flagship McDonald's restaurant located in Chicago, Illinois. It is one of the most famous McDonald's locations in the world and was once the busiest in the United States. The 1983 and 2005 strucutres on the site, located in the River North neighborhood of Chicago, a few city blocks west of the Magnificent Mile, had been tourist attraction since it opened in 1983. The 2018 redesign has no Rock and Roll themes, but is still the Flagship McDonalds location in Chicago, the city where the corporate headquarters moved in 2018.After demolition of the original building, building opened in 2005 and originally had a maximum occupancy of 300, which is about three times the standard McDonald's patron seating capacity. The original 1983 building and the first design of the rebuilt 2005 structure site held a rock and roll exhibit in a building adjacent to the restaurant and a small upstairs McDonald's museum display. The building featured the first two-lane McDonald's drive-through, relatively luxurious decor, a café, flat panel televisions and a green roof. In 2017, a redesign of the restaurant and adjacent building began to relinquish the Rock N Roll theme. The building was mostly demolished apart from the kitchen; the updated restaurant was designed to be eco-friendly by Ross Barney Architects with interiors by Landini Associates. Even though the re-designed restaurant will have no rock ‘n’ roll theme, McDonald’s insiders still refer to the location as “the Rock”.
