Should you have a hankering to hear good old fashioned Rock and Roll while wolfing down enormous portions of burgers, nachos and other North American favorites, Hard Rock Cafe is the place to do it.
If you've been to a Hard Rock Cafe before you'll know what to expect - musical memorabilia lines the walls, and the staff never miss an opportuntity to try and sell something from the 'Rock Shop' next door. If you do head here, make sure you grab an outside table, where you can enjoy some pretty impressive mountain views.
There are some very lively parties here on Friday and Saturday nights, with the DJs playing a US-inspired selection that is oddly lacking in rock classics.
