12 HARD ROCK CAFE LONDON

12 HARD ROCK CAFE LONDON Discover the place known for its authentic dining and world class entertainment when you visit Hard Rock Cafe London. 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. The food inspires locals and tourists alike to visit. Enjoy freshly prepared American entrees and classic favorites like the Legendary® Burger. From flavourful salads, to savoury signature dishes, the chefs use only the freshest ingredients to create culinary perfection for every guest. 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.
