Visited Hard Rock Cafe while attending a convention this past January. It was your typical Hard Rock Cafe with its decor of music and movie memorabilia. I was alone so I sat at a small table by the bar. The restaurant had a great vibe. Staff were very friendly and offered suggestions for "must do-see things" while I was in... More

Visited Denver on business for a few days and arrived Sunday afternoon. Taking a stroll downtown I spotted the Hard Rock on the corner and had to drop in as it's always reliable and does what it does well. Unfortunately for me, the Denver branch didn't do so well as the experiences I've had elsewhere. I chose to take a... More

An evening meal with a few drinks amongst friends and this HRC as per most, hit the spot. A great setting, interesting memorobilia throughout and the usual compliment of good service, quality food and a great drinks selection. Always feels comfortable when dining at HRC as the brand and consistency works well.

I had lunch at Hard Rock in downtown Denver during a sales conference, and ordered up the Hickory Barbeque Bacon cheeseburger. It was good, came out in a reasonable time, and served hot. Our server was attentive, and made sure our drinks were filled and cold. The manager came by for a visit to check on us as well.

You just can't beat going to a HRC in any city in the world. It's nice to have the consistency in good food and drinks. I'm a guitar pin collector and now I get to add Denver to my lanyard.

Food is pretty good and standard Hard Rock fare. Menu doesn't change Boucher between the establishments. There was lots of seating , but it was 11deg F outside. Staff was very friendly and talkative.

Located on one of the major corners in the middle of the 16th St Mall, is a great and convenient location; also near several hotels. The food was good, service was good, the Manager was fantastic!

Good service, drinks are overpriced. Had the southwestern salad and it was surprisingly good, would return, other diners had the flat bread and a burger. Would be 4 stars if it wasn't for the drinks

Description
Denver was founded in 1858, the first spot where gold was discovered in Colorado during the heyday of the Gold Rush. While still firmly rooted in its Western past, modern-day Denver spotlights sharp skyscrapers, clean streets and literally dozens of parks that give it a much younger and more progressive feel in the new millennium. Although nicknamed the "Mile High City," Denver doesn't lie in the mountains at all. The city itself is completely flat, sitting on high plains with the Rocky Mountains as a majestic backdrop. Stop by the Hard Rock Cafe Denver the next time you're visiting the "Mile High City"! Located in Denver Pavilions, this two-story walking mall on 16th Street was recently rated Denver's #1 tourist attraction, but that doesn't mean locals don't hang out here, too! We're the #1 spot for everyone, and as always, the Hard Rock Cafe is easy for everyone to find. Just look for the 20-foot neon guitar and spread the word that there's still gold to be found inside our doors! (Gold-album recording artist memorabilia, that is.) So if dry mountain air has left you parched, unhitch your wagon and have a seat at our handcrafted oak bar for the tastiest drinks and the best grub this side of the Mississippi. No horses inside though, please, just the occasional pony keg.
