Standing on Old Park Lane since 14 June, 1971, and proudly boasting a Mayfair neighbourhood address, Hard Rock London was the first cafe where the classes mingled.

Experience the difference of Hard Rock’s service with an energetic, hardworking staff, ready to provide you with everything you need to enjoy the perfect meal. With more than 40 years as London’s Ambassadors of Rock, Hard Rock Cafe London offers food, entertainment, and culture under one roof. Explore London’s only rock n’ roll museum when you visit The Vault, a treasure trove featuring the most valuable pieces of music memorabilia from across the globe. Tucked away in an old Coutts Bank, The Vault was once used to protect the Queen’s coffers. A visit to Hard Rock Cafe London is an inspired cultural and culinary experience. The story of the Hard Rock memorabilia is now the stuff of legends, but the official story goes something like this: Back in the 70’s, Eric Clapton regularly used to go into the restaurant and one day, he asked the waiters to reserve him a table. Hard Rock’s policy is not to reserve tables and when told this, Eric replied asking if he signed and donated one of his guitars, would they be able to save him his favourite spot at the bar. Hard Rock obliged and placed the guitar on the wall. A week later, they received a case containing another signed guitar with a note saying ‘Mine is as good as his’ and it was signed by Pete Townsend. The rest, as they say, is history. Visit AUGUST AT UNDERBELLY FESTIVAL ON THE SOUTH BANK August may be the month of the Edinburgh Fringe but do not despair, as entertainment, food and drink are all still in full swing on the South Bank in the form of Underbelly Festival. Fun for all the family includes Metta Theatre’s Jungle Book (1-24 August) which melds hip-hop dancing, spoken word and creative design to create a contemporary, urban, politically aware reinterpretation of Kipling’s classic. Iconic: A Brief History of Drag takes a tour through the artform with help from Jessie Wallace and Kerry Ellis before star of Ru Paul’s Drag Race Courtney Act hits the London stage for the first time with The Girl From Oz.

All of this comes set in some of the capital’s finest outdoor drinking spaces with a menu of street food and drinks – the perfect location to enjoy the rest of summer. t h i s i s l o n d o n m a g a z i n e • t h i s i s l o n d o n o n l i n e
