The basics

The Hard Rock Café’s dates back to 1971, when its first location opened in London. Shortly after, musicians such as Eric Clapton and The Who’s Pete Townshend began donating their instruments to the venue—and the rest is history. Today, the Hard Rock Café is home to the world’s largest collection of rock collectibles, and the Chicago location features objects once owned by Billy Joel, Jimi Hendrix, and Prince.

Conveniently located in Downtown Chicago—and unmissable with its enormous, illuminated guitar out front—the Hard Rock Café Chicago serves a range of hot food and drinks. Book in advance to guarantee your spot, or purchase a voucher online for an even more seamless experience.
