What Makes Entertainment Unforgettable at Hard Rock?

Whether you’re taking in a show at the Hard Rock Cafe or the Hard Rock Event Center, there’s never a bad seat in the house. 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.

Events at our Hard Rock Event Center are a little more formal, with tickets required for entry. All shows are 21+ only. Music lovers appreciate our one-of-a-kind event center for the pure acoustics and unobstructed sightlines.

Enjoy an Excellent Meal or Cocktails Before Your Concert

If you’re looking for a stylish spot to grab a drink or meal before your show, Hard Rock Casino Cincinnati features several on-site restaurants, bars, and lounges. Enjoy a spectacular downtown view from the Hard Rock Cafe Terrace or watch all your favorite sports events in our high-energy Hard Rock Center Bar. You won’t find a more impressive selection of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia than at our signature Hard Rock Cafe, which also boasts some of the juiciest burgers in the city. If you want to class up your date night, be sure to break bread at Council Oak Steaks & Seafood, the host of some of Cincy’s best cuts of meat!

Stick Around After the Show for Slots or Live Casino Games

Just because the show is over doesn’t mean you have to call it a night. Extend the fun of date night in our 100,000-square-foot gaming area. Often voted Cincinnati’s best casino, we have over 1,600 slot machines and 100 live tabletop games to give you plenty of opportunities to win big. Membership in our Hard Rock Wild Card Rewards Program is free, giving you even more chances to take home fabulous prizes with our easy points redemption system.
