The Hard Rock Cafes are global phenomena, with cafes in almost every important city world wide, including Las Vegas, Paris, Florence, Beijing and Bahrain, to name but a few of its 150 cafes in 53 countries. And of course, London is also graced with a small but nonetheless just as exciting cafe just on London's Old Park Lane. It is not a long shot to say the cafe is a classic, still famous for attracting the best rock stars down for a burger and the occasional "jamming session".
The restaurant never fails to attract popular appeal for its first-rate, but moderately priced, casual American menu. The service and staff are warm and friendly but of course its most appealing feature is its omnipresent Rock 'n' Roll music and sensibility.
All the cafes' walls are lined with Rock 'n' Roll memorabilia and the London venue still houses its first ever piece donated to the Hard Rock Cafe, Eric Clapton's Lead II Fender. The guitar-lined walls and constant flow of classic rock hits complement the American dining experience and the cool atmosphere and a merchandise shop just to the side is as popular as the food that is served.
