Updated: Jun 4, 2023

We are a huge fan of Hard Rock Café. We have been to several hard rock cafés so far but the Hard Rock Cafe, Dubai is my favorite among all.

Hard Rock Cafe Dubai is located in the Dubai Festival City (next to Marks & Spencers), one of the most famous shopping malls in Dubai. It's just 5 km away from Dubai International Airport.

We would highly suggest making a reservation for your table in advance so you don’t have to wait for your turn. Mostly on weekends (Thursday and Friday), it's fully packed with locals and International guests who have an interest in Live Music.

Hard Rock Shop:

The café has 2 story building. The ground floor has a Hard Rock Shop and the cafe is on the 1st & 2nd floor.

When we entered the Hard Rock Café, the store was on the left side and it was quite different than other Hard Rock Cafes we have visited so far. The store has a huge collection of T-shirts, Hoodies and Jeans jackets.

We bought a Jeans Jacket which has Hard Rock Cafe Dubai written on the back and also a white typical Hard Rock white shirt with the logo on the front.

The Ambiance of Hard Rock Cafe:

There's a Red Carpet walkway leading towards the elevator. A Big Stand with small logos of Hard Rock Cafe Dubai provides the best background for the memorable picture. To be honest, this kind of ambiance gave me the feeling of an awards Ceremony.

At the main entrance, we were warmly welcomed by a receptionist who escorted us to the 1st floor through the elevator. OMG!! The Ambiance was just awesome.

Like most of the Hard Rock Cafes, the collection of various Musical Instruments to personal stuff used by various Super Stars was showcased on the walls of the café. We must admit that it's one of the most luxurious Hard Rock Cafe in Asia and Europe.

What to Eat in Hard Rock Cafe:

The music was just according to my choice. The friendly waitress came and gave us the menu. Being a Hard Rock Café fan, we know the entire menu and the food they have. But still, we gave a short look at the menu and ordered our favorite Hickory Barbecue Cheese Burger and Twisted Mac Chicken Cheese. For the drink, we ordered Virgin Mojito.

Live Music Performance in Hard Rock Cafe:

In front of the sitting area, there’s a big stage for the Live performances. On that night, the Underground band from London was performing and playing Rock music. The audience was totally indulged in the Live Music.

The Best Food in Hard Rock Cafe:

Hard Rock Cafe Dubai's hospitality never disappoints me. After a short wait, our mouth-watering order arrived. The Hickory Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger.

My taste buds were enjoying every bite of smoked turkey bacon with hickory barbecue sauce topped with caramelized onions, crispy lettuce, tomato, and Cheddar Cheese and the famous American Mac Chicken and Cheese with a combination of three-cheese sauce with Parmesan Parsley bread crumbs.

Our Food in Hard Rock Dubai

We enjoyed our food and drink with the most energetic music. The crowd went crazy when the band played UPTOWN FUNK by Bruno Mars. This experience was totally on a different level. We highly recommended dining at Hard Rock Cafe, Dubai during your trip to Dubai, UAE.

It was already too late. After enjoying a few more songs, we decided to go back home.

Ending note:

Have you had the chance to visit Hard Rock Cafe Dubai? We would love to hear your thoughts on whether you think it's the best Hard Rock Cafe in Asia and Europe.
