And so my USA adventure continues in Atlanta, Georgia. So my best friend of 17 years decided to visit me for the weekend (isn’t she the bestest) and on her first night in Atlanta we decided to have dinner at Hard Rock Café!
HARD ROCK CAFE
Hard Rock Café is a chain of rock and roll music themed restaurants. It was founded in 1971 by Isaac Tigrett and Peter Morton in Piccadilly, London. Hard Rock Café has a tradition of covering its walls with rock and roll memorabilia. Hard Rock was sold to the Seminole Tribe of Florida and as a result its headquarters are in Orlando, Florida. But there approximately 191 Hard Rock Café locations in 59 countries which include approximately 168 cafes, 23 hotels and 11 casinos. Its many locations include Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Paris, Berlin, and ATLANTA (to name just a few).
Hard Rock Café is known for its rock and roll memorabilia which include un-signed Red Fender Lead II guitar from Eric Clapton, and Bedford VAL 6 axle coach used in the 1967 film The Beatles Magical Mystery Tour. The Hard Rock Café in Atlanta even has a store inside the restaurant where you can “take home your own piece of history, including the latest artist-inspired shirts and our classic Hard Rock t-shirts”. The Atlanta Hard Rock was established in 1992 and I was really impressed with the vibe, the food and the incredible service. I have never been to a Hard Rock Café chain before prior to the Atlanta restaurant and all I can say is if this is the standard of all Hard Rock Cafés around the world then Hard Rock has set a high bar in terms of uniqueness and overall experiential dining. I would highly recommend Hard Rock Café Atlanta.
Here are some of my favourite highlights from my Hard Rock Café Atlanta experience:
