Located in the heart of downtown Seattle, the Hard Rock Cafe Seattle strikes the perfect balance in a city that boasts one of the most diverse and influential alternative music scenes in the world, a city where Jimi Hendrix performed his first headlining gig, where upscale coffee was perfected and where countless visitors flock each year to see the sights. Designated a LEED certified building as defined by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System, Hard Rock Cafe Seattle mixes in as much of authentic Seattle as possible—from the existing timbers of our Pike Street building to our city-specific memorabilia.
The 14,000-square-foot cafe includes seating for 425, a vibrant bar and a Rock Shop featuring a wide array of Hard Rock’s limited-edition, highly-collectible merchandise. The aesthetic of Hard Rock Cafe Seattle follows a “Rustic Refined” design vision which articulates the energy and vibe of the Hard Rock brand. The Cafe also offers a new and unique memorabilia experience, with hundreds of iconic items commemorating Seattle’s vibrant music history on display, from Eddie Vedder’s acoustic guitar to Jimi Hendrix’s 1969 Fender Stratocaster guitar, from Krist Novoselic’s bass used while on tour with Nirvana to the doorway from Robert Lang Studios signed by many iconic Seattle bands.
