Blending the classic atmosphere of an American diner with the devil–may–care edge of rock ‘n’ roll, the Hard Rock Café is much more than just a café – it’s an international institution, and it was only a matter of time before the legendary restaurant made its way on to Belgian soil. Opening its doors in 2012, the Hard Rock Café Brussels has been enticing locals to swap their French fries and Belgian waffles for some all-American soul food ever since and there are few more atmospheric spots to tuck into a burger.
Taking over a restored 16th-century building in the heart of the capital, fans of the Hard Rock Café will find all their favorites on the Brussels’ menu, from Bar-B-Que Ribs to Wildberry Smoothies, but of course, the Hard Rock Café has always been about more than just the food. Like all Hard Rock Cafés, the Brussels franchise is crammed full of priceless rock memorabilia including items from legends like Bono, The Sex Pistols, Jimi Hendrix and Elvis Presley, as well as a stage costume worn by Madonna and a guitar played by Eric Clapton. Not only that, but there’s a live music area, a late night lounge, a Rock Shop filled with Hard Rock-inspired merchandise and the innovative Rock Wall™ Solo, an interactive touch wall offering a virtual tour of the Hard Rock Café’s 174 venues around the globe.
The Hard Rock Café Brussels is located on the Grand Place in central Brussels and is open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight (1 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights).
