I am a fan of Hard Rock Cafe and their merchandise for many years now. I mainly buy their clothing merchandise which to me has pretty good quality. To me, i feels like I carry a part of the city I traveled to with me.
Since I was travelling to UK, France and Netherlands, I made a point to stop at all the Hard Rock Cafes available in the region of my travel. After doing some tourist stuffs, we went to HRC London for lunch. We were seated almost immediately. I can’t recall our server’s name (a young local girl) but she was very warm and friendly. We ordered and food came pretty fast. As usual, the food presentation, portion and serving are standard worldwide, which is why I love HRC. Friendly service, good portion of food, standard quality everywhere, cool environment. After our lunch, we headed to the Rock shop for our shopping!
Here are some facts about HRC.
‘The first Hard Rock Cafe opened on 14 June 1971, in Piccadilly, London, United Kingdom under the ownership of young Americans Peter Morton and Isaac Tigrett. Hard Rock initially had an eclectic decor but it later started to display memorabilia. Hard Rock has amassed one of the largest collections of rock and roll memorabilia in the world. The chain began to expand worldwide in 1982 with locations in (among others) Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Paris and Berlin Hard Rock Cafe locations in the United States vary from smaller, more tourist driven markets (Biloxi, Destin, Gatlinburg, Key West, etc.) to large metropolises (Houston, Philadelphia, New York, Chicago, Boston, Washington DC, etc.). Hard Rock Cafe typically does not franchise cafe locations in the United States. All US cafes are corporate owned and operated, except for cafes in Tampa and Four Winds casino’.
