NileGuide Expert Says:
You'll get better and cheaper decent quality burgers elsewhere in London, but hey, there's only one original Hard Rock Cafe, and this rockin' joint is still a London institution.
NileGuide Expert tip:
Run out of pounds sterling? Then pay in U.S. dollars.
There may be a Hard Rock almost wherever you turn up in the world nowadays, but this is the original. Strange to think that before June 1971 no-one had thought to bring good quality reasonably priced burgers across The Pond. Today, a basic HRC burger costs over £9, which is expensive against its many London competitors, but of course no-one comes just for the food. Big names in the rock music business play regularly and the Café's priceless rock' n 'roll memorabilia collection has recently got even better with the reopening of The Vault which houses the most treasured pieces (there's no charge, just drop in). For those of you who have been on a different planet for the last 40 years there is a no-booking policy so, unless you choose a very quiet time, be happy to join the world's most famous dinner queue!
