Hard Rock Cafe & Hard Rock Live! Orlando

Good food surrounded by priceless memorabilia

Save to my Account

The Hard Rock Cafe at Universal Orlando CityWalk was the world’s first Hard Rock Cafe and it still is the largest. Generous portions of good food and lots of drink choices are why the multi-level Hard Rock Cafe remains popular since opening in 1990.

And it has an amazing collection of rock memorabilia once owned by some of the the most famous names in contemporary music. Orlando’s Hard Rock Cafe is a combination storehouse and musical shrine containing an amazing 7,000 authentic items once owned, used by or associated with the biggest names of rock music. Having more memorabilia than any other Hard Rock Cafe, the Hard Rock staff refer to it as the Roman Coliseum of rock.

Treasured artifacts include the suit Elvis wore in the film Viva Las Vegas!,  Buddy Holly’s famous black glasses taken from the plane crash that killed him, the synthesizer that John Lennon composed on, guitars strummed by Bo Diddley and Pete Townshend, a hand-painted poster for a Beatles 1960 concert in Hamburg, Germany, and the suit worn by Freddie Mercury during Queen’s 1978 US “Jazz” Tour.

Visit at anytime and don’t worry about waiting because of large crowds. Go online and get priority seating. It also is on Open Table.

The live rock concerts are not held in the dining area but in the section of the cafe called Hard Rock Live!  With seating for 3,000,  check the Hard Rock Live concert schedule here.
