Hard Rock Café New York

1501 Broadway, New York City, New York, 10036

The Basics

With a 700-plus capacity, music videos showing on big screens, and authentic rock ‘n’ roll artifacts, the Hard Rock Cafe is one of Midtown Manhattan’s buzziest dining spots. Open morning till late, the restaurant serves classic American fare: think burgers, ribs, desserts, and a cocktail-heavy bar list. After your meal, admire the exhibits, and browse the Hard Rock merchandise on sale in the on-site store.

Some day trips from cities such as Boston include lunch at the Hard Rock Cafe; other options team dinner with a ticket to a Broadway show or another attraction. Select tours of New York City stop by the restaurant to check out the art deco architecture.

We enjoyed our evening at the Hard Rock Cafe - very lively and fun but were expecting our menu theme Rhythm and Blues to match the atmosphere with similar music but that did not ruin the experience. Service was quick with polite courtesy all round. Out Hard Rock Times Square was busy and vibrant - great experience - definitely highly recommended.
