Atlanta as a city has made innumerable contributions to the soul of American music, and many of the nation’s top musical icons have memorabilia hanging on these walls. Conveniently located in downtown Atlanta right next to the Peachtree Mall, Hard Rock Café Atlanta can not only accommodate 1,200 people, but also houses its own music venue that’s know as the Velvet Underground. Music fans have been dining here since 1992, and the restaurant is located in the Cornerstone building that was built in 1928 at the heart of Atlanta’s downtown. After dining on classic American fare like burgers and hickory smoked BBQ, peruse the collection of memorabilia to learn about dozens of artists, and stay to enjoy an evening of rock, blues, country, or soul.
The Hard Rock Café Atlanta is within walking distance of many major Atlanta attractions. There are multiple parking garages within a block of the restaurant, and the venue tends to be louder at night once the musical acts take the stage.
