The music industry is collapsing, brought to its knees by arrogance, mismanagement and a profound failure to deal with 21st-century challenges. But stepping through the doors of the Hard Rock Café, you’d think the old business was in the rudest of health. You’d also think it was 1983: the walls are lined with gold records (remember records?), and glass-fronted cabinets proudly display such consecrated treasures as a bass guitar once cradled by Felix Pappalardi of Mountain. Only the prices bring you back to the future. The relative absence of British accents tells its own story. The food is exactly as you might expect: garish cocktails; mammoth plates of nachos; and burgers, which are actually pretty good. The relentlessly enthusiastic staff aren’t shy about directing you to the shop over the road, where yet more rock relics sit alongside dazzlingly expensive T-shirts and other take-home ephemera.

Did a bit of a Hard Rock immersive last night that involved dining in the restaurant, a visit to the vaults and then onto Hard Rock Rising downstairs. I am more used to the bohemian , grungy surroundings of some of London's smaller rock and roll bars. Hard Rock felt perhaps a little too clean - corporate and sterile at first. However, the evening grew on me. The food in the restaurant was excellent (I had the rib eye steak and mash) . The Vaults is an interesting collection of memorabilia, below the retail store. Hard Rock Rising saw three young bands play their hearts out for a place in the finals and a gig in Rome. By the time I jumped The Piccadilly Line, I was totally won over. The Hard Rock Cafe did what it said on the tin. It fed me well and ROCKED !

Just discovered The Back Room Bar - Part of The Hard Rock Cafe on Old Park Lane. 

Love the place. Feels exactly like the sort of pub most of the bands featured in The Hard Rock would like to drink and play at. Good sounds, delicious great-value Pizza and friendly bar team. This place is a winner.

Family meal for 2 adults and 1 child 23.04.14

Very poor, overpriced and overhyped. Barmaid did not know the difference between bitter and lager, meal arrived (burger) and the meat in the middle was raw and i dont mean rare i mean raw ,this was sent back un eaten and the manager came over and said he would nt charge me for it, well thanks alot. then they played adelle, now i'm not anti adelle but its not really hard rock is it.

Get a grip HRC if your charging loads for burgers at least do a good job of it.

My advice is to give it a miss.

The shop is also overpriced but the basement memorobillia studio is worth a look. 

go to byrons instead and get a better meal and save a load of money.


Fui a cenar la semana pasada con dos amigas. La decoración no esta del todo mal (aunque esperaba mucho mas para ser el primer HRC del mundo). Pero tengo que decir que la comida es bastante mala en relación calidad precio. (Hay hamburguesas por 1pound mucho mas buenas que estas que valen 15 veces mas). Dejando esto a un lado, el problema llegó a la hora de pagar. La camarera se llevo mi tarjeta de crédito para proceder al pago, sin cotejar el nombre con mi DNI y sin pedirme el pin de la tarjeta. Es la primera vez desde que estoy en Londres que me sudece algo asi, pues siempre tengo que poner mi contraseña. De hecho he trabajado como camarera y siempre teniamos que proceder al pago delante del cliente, nunca hacerlo a distancia,( y menos sin comprobar que el que paga es el dueño de esa tarjeta). Mi sorpresa fue a los dias, cuando vi que me habían cobrado dos cuentas distintas (la mia, y otra con una cantidad superior, probablemente de otra mesa). Por suerte vivo en Londres y pude ir a reclamar en persona (si hubiese sido turista, que son los que suelen ir a comer a este tipo de sitios, me hubiese resultado super complicado reclamar mi dinero), y tambien por suerte aun conservaba el ticket. Cuando llegué alli me atendió la manager, quien a su vez llamó a la contable. Me dijeron que solo tenían constancia de uno de los pagos, pero que de todos modos iban a comprobar con su banco la otra operación, para anularla en el caso de que hubiese sido efectuada (y ya digo yo que si se habia efectuado, porque el dinero lo habian descontado de mi cuenta). Poco despues me llegó un correo diciendo que habian ordenado a su banco cancelar la operación y que en unos dias me devolverían el dinero (con lo que me confirmaban que si me habian cobrado el dinero de otra cuenta, cuando me dijeron que no les constaba). Unos dias despues me devolvieron el dinero, pero después de pasar por esta situacion embarazosa. Es cierto que un error lo puede tener cualquiera, pero lo que no puedo llegar a entender es que una institución tan popular y antigua como esta utilice un sistema de pago que no garantiza para nada la seguridad de los clientes, y que da rienda suelta a cualquier tipo de fraude, ya que no se comprueba la identidad al efectuar pagos sin tarjeta.


OK it's not mind blowing but there's usually a good atmosphere, the service is polished and they play pretty decent rock music. I'd argue they do one of the best burgers in London, too. Ig's not fine dining but if you like this kind of music and food, you'd struggle not to enjoy it.
