Hard Rock Café Barcelona
Hard Rock Café Barcelona is one of the city’s most popular restaurants, with long waits even on weeknights. Hungry travelers walk in and add their names to the list, or book a 2- or 3-course meal online ahead of time to snag priority seating. Diners can sit inside amid the music collectibles or on the outdoor patio to people watch in Plaça de Catalunya. An on-site store sells Hard Rock Café T-shirts and souvenirs.

How to Get There
The Hard Rock Café is situated on the southeast side of Plaça de Catalunya. It’s within walking distance of just about anywhere in the Old City, or you can take the Barcelona metro (Line 1 or 3) to Pl. Catalunya Station.
When to Get There
The Hard Rock Café restaurant is open daily from 11:30am to 2am. The store opens at 9am. Though there’s almost always a waiting list, the best times to visit for minimal wait times are weekday afternoons for a late lunch or early dinner.
Highlights of the Music Collection
Like any Hard Rock Cafe, the Barcelona location serves as a mini-museum of rock ’n’ roll history. The unique collection here includes a jacket worn by Michael Jackson during The Jacksons’ Victory Tour, a guitar played by Jimi Hendrix, a Whitney Houston gown, and a teddy worn by Madonna.
