The basics

Las Vegas’ first Hard Rock Cafe opened in 1990 and was located at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino; it was demolished in 2019, and the hotel and casino closed its doors in 2020 to be transformed into Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

The second cafe, located in the Showcase Mall, features the same Americana grub and signature decadent dishes that the franchise is known for such as Twisted Mac, Chicken & Cheese and the 24-Karat Gold Leaf Steak Burger, as well as breakfast fare. Purchase a prix-fixe menu option, which comes with a main entree choice, dessert, and tea, coffee, or soda. Or, swing by to simply sip a cocktail and catch local live music.
