Hard Rock Cafe
Hard Rock Cafe Orlando at Universal CityWalk

What is Hard Rock Cafe Orlando?

The largest Hard Rock Cafe in the world has, as one might expect, all the standard trappings of its franchise brethren – classic American cuisine supplemented by a full bar and copious amounts of rock ‘n roll memorabilia. But this being Universal Orlando, the chain takes it to the nth degree, offering the biggest collection of musical artifacts (including entire Elvis, Beatles, and John Lennon rooms that need to be seen to be believed). There’s also the attached Hard Rock Live next-door, which is a 3,000-person concert venue (and the only one of its Hard Rock kind in the world).

Where is Hard Rock Cafe Orlando located?

At Universal CityWalk Orlando.

Hard Rock Cafe Orlando – insider tip

Ask for the free guided tours to see such legendary items as Jimi Hendrix’s Red Fender Mustang, pieces of a suite worn by Elvis Presley in the movie Viva Las Vegas, and a jacket James Brown donned multiple times at the Apollo Theater. Then, if you’re still feeling in the rockin’ mood, be sure to check out Hard Rock Hotel, one of Universal’s three premier hotels, which contains even more memorabilia.
