Hard Rock Cafe in A Friend in Deed

Towards the end of the episode, specifically when the cops are at the bar to arrest Arte Jessup, there is clearly a building in the background that says "Hard Rock Cafe". Most interesting. It has to be a different place than the ones we know today because there was no Hard Rock in LA during the 1970s. Did anyone else notice this? (Now I just gave everyone an excuse to dust off the old VCR tape and watch the episode again!!)

The Doors put out an LP in 1970 MORRISON HOTEL, that had one side entitled HRC.
They even did a photo session there!

It's NOT the same as the famous version that has restaurants in many cities.
