Hard Rock Cafe - Seattle
It’s always fun to visit a Hard Rock Cafe, whether to get a feel of the local vibe or to check out the music scene and its history. Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle is no different. I sat down with Erin and we talked about the goodies in our Hard Rock in Seattle.
What is a unique Memorabilia that only exists in Hard Rock Seattle?
Hard Rock Seattle pays tribute to the incredible acts who got their start in or around this city, including memorabilia by Nirvana, Jimi Hendrix, Mudhoney, Heart and more.
One of my particular favorites is our Kurt Cobain acoustic guitar. The Ovation Folklore acoustic belonged to his aunt, and was one of the first professional instruments he ever played. It is a piece that played a significant part in the musical development of one ofSeattle’s and the world’s most beloved artists.
One of the most memorable concerts you had?
A while back we did a two night engagement with Rising West, which was the new incarnation of Queensryche, featuring vocalist Todd La Torre of Crimson Glory. Our venue can hold quite the crowd but still lends itself to an intimate performance. It was great to see a legend like Michael Wilton in that setting.
Why is Seattle such a great place for Music?
Seattle is really incredible for music because it has such a rich music history, but it hasn’t been pigeonholed into one genre. There is room for anything here, from the grunge that made Seattle famous to indie folk groups like The Head and The Heart. We book local songwriters for our Happy Hour 5-7 most Monday-Fridays and there is a never ending pool of talent for both that and our full bill shows on Saturdays.
Favorite Drink from the bar? Food?
We have some great new items on our menu, though my all-time favorite has to be our Local Legendary Burger – The Java Lava. The burger is basted with an espresso rub and then topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, crispy fried onion straws, our jalapeno lava sauce and one giant fried fresh jalapeno on top. It is absolutely incredible, seriously you have to try it. My go-to is one of our great local drafts on tap, but if you have a sweet tooth – try the Twist and Shout milkshake. Guinness, Bacardi, dark cream, chocolate and caramel syrup, whipped cream and topped with BACON. Who doesn’t love bacon?
