Hospitality Line

Every group we bring to the Hard Rock is handled with complete professionalism. Great food and great service keeps us coming back.

The Hedrons

It was our 1st Hard Rock Cafe gig and was great to be involved with a company with such an illustrious rock history. It was also great that this was a charity event in aid of the Nordoff-Robbins (a charity we fully support), this made the occasion even more memorable for us. We were treated fantastically by all the staff and we would especially like to thank Amy for all her work looking after us. All in all a "Rockin" gig!

Centre for Cardiovascular Science Edinburgh

As a venue for a private function, the Hard Rock Cafe Edinburgh provided everything that was expected and more. The food was excellent, the staff exceptional, a fantastic time was had by all.

This was my first experience of Edinburgh's Hard Rock Cafe and I was really really impressed. The staff could not have been friendlier if they had tried. The facilities were top class and we were fed and watered to bursting point. I am a huge fan of the Hard Rock Chain and have visited many throughout the world.

Cosmic Rough Riders

Cosmic Rough Riders are always more than happy to support Nordoff-Robbins music therapy, and when the opportunity arose to play for the charity at The Hard Rock Cafe in Edinburgh we jumped at the chance to become involved in this perfect match. A huge thank you to everyone involved for making this such a great event!

Peter Electric Band

Many thanks for having and looking after us. It was a pleasure to deal with such a great team of people. We had a fabulous time and we hope to see you all very soon. Thanks once again.
