What Makes Entertainment Unforgettable at Hard Rock?

You can catch local, national, and international entertainment at both of our unique entertainment venues. We present live music every Friday and Saturday night on a first-come, first-serve seating basis at the Hard Rock Cafe. Cafe patrons can snack on classic eats and cocktails while admiring authentic rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia during shows.
