Part-American diner, part-Rock ‘n’ Roll hall of fame, the iconic Hard Rock Café franchise has branches all over the globe, and the Hard Rock Café Toronto is among the oldest, serving music lovers since 1978. Located right opposite the huge Toronto Eaton Shopping Centre, it’s one of the coolest spots in the city to grab a mouth-watering Hard Rock Bacon Cheeseburger or a cowboy-worthy rack of Hickory Smoked Pork Ribs (don’t worry- there are vegetarian options too!).
There’s everything you’d expect from a Hard Rock Café – slick, dark wood interiors decorated with an eclectic collection of guitars, costumes and music memorabilia, regular live music performances and the always-popular Rock Shop, where you can pick up a unique reminder of your visit. Even the menu is inspired by music genres, with themes including Blue Grass, Hip Hop, Rhythm and Blues and Jazz, and there’s a spacious patio, where you can relax as you work your way through the cocktail list.
The Hard Rock Café Toronto is located on Yonge Street in downtown Toronto and is open daily from 11am-11pm Sun-Tues, 11am-midnight Wed-Thurs, and 11am-1am Fri-Sat.
