Transit: The light rail can take you directly downtown to either the Union Station stop in LoDo or the 16th Street Mall stop on California, just blocks from the Hard Rock Cafe! Also, the complimentary Mall Shuttle travels up and down 16th Street Mall between Union Station and Civic Center Station, taking you right to the cafe located on Glenarm.
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.

“Meh!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

We thought the Hard Rock Cafe would be awesome but it wasn't. All the food we ordered was pretty bland. Nothing really had any taste to it. We ordered the chicken club and the hickory BBQ pulled pork.

The service was fairly good. We had a friendly waiter named Stefan. The men's bathroom was closed so they only had one restroom open.

In the gift shop we received very good service. The only issue was the food not tasting decent.

Probably won't return to the Denver location.

Thanks for the review! Feedback from our fans is always appreciated. The renovations have certainly caused a few speedbumps, but soon we'll have a brand new building (and separate restrooms) for our guests to enjoy!

“Not my best hard rock experience!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

A typical hard rock. however they were in the middle of a major renovation that was not posted on the website. Most of the café was closed due to this renovation and the mess was outrageous. For a die hard, Hard Rock Café family that we are, when men and women are sharing a bathroom with an employee setting outside the restroom telling you when you can enter this is a hard rock I'm not excited about. Check before you go on the status of the remodel. ON a good note the staff was very nice. Food was good, and there was good outdoor seating if you were lucky enough to get a table. Our rewards card was a lifesaver to get a table!!

“Not as good as before!”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

We went there not knowing that they were remodeling. We sat outside which is nice, but due to the remodeling, we were unable to order blender drinks AND women had to share the only men's restroom. Not cool at all! They have a new menu that no longer includes items I have preciously enjoyed. I'll probably pass and go to one of the many other restaurants on the 16th St. Mall.

Thanks for the review, Dede! We have attempted to make the remodeling process as smooth as possible, as to not inconvience our guests. By the end of this month, we'll have a brand new updated building for our guests to experience! Hopefully we'll see you again soon!
