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.

Reviewed 6 July 2014

First off the service and atmosphere was great, loved the new decore.
However the food was lacking in a big way, "ribs" meat did not come off the bone as advertised with great ease, in fact it was quiet the opposite and for the price you charge, it was disappointing. Steve the waiter did offer to buy me a dessert to make up for it ,but I declined.

“Waste of money”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Typical blah food. My teens haven't ever been to a Hard Rock so when I let them choose dinner, this is where they wanted to go. Go here more for the experience of it. Loud drunks, average at best food and overpriced menu. But the rock and roll memorabilia is cool and the kids got a kick out of the people watching. Almost $100 to feed three teens and a mom and was no better than food you could get at any other boring chain for half the cost.

We apologize that you didn't have the best experience with us at Hard Rock Cafe Denver! Our prices are set by our home office in Orlando, and are comparable with other businesses in the Downtown district. I'm glad you enjoyed checking out our great collection of new memorabilia...Come back soon!

“Always Fun”
Reviewed 25 June 2014 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

The Hard Rock is always a fun place for lunch. We sat next to a window upstairs and enjoyed the view while we enjoyed the food. It was under renovation then so the first floor was closed. it should be done now and very nice. If you go, try to sit in the bar area upstairs for the view of the 16th St. Mall

“Hard Rock Cafe - no suprises!!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

I have been to many Hard Rock Cafes throughout the world and to be honest they are very much the same. You know what you're getting. Food is always good quality, hot and plenty. Service was very good as usual. Toilets upstairs, clean and tidy. An elevator if you need it.
