I've had some great times at the Hard Rock Cafe since it opened in Glasgow, and I'm over the moon to be asked to DJ at Hogmanay! I can't think of a better place to bring in the New Year! Hard Rock will indeed rock Hogmanay!

We had a great night, thanks! Everything was perfect and your staff were a real credit to the HRC brand. We could not have asked for more – everyone was so friendly and couldn’t do enough to ensure that all our guests had a great time.

I think the party will forever be remembered fondly by everyone who attended and be a source of envy for those that didn’t make it! Most importantly, Jacqui loved it so I think our marriage is safe for the time being at least!

Thanks again for all your help and advice throughout and to Dom and the team on the night. It’s Kimberley’s 30th next May and I think she’s angling for a party at the HRC now!



Nicholas Anderson

Just a quick email to say thank-you very much for everything you done for our Christmas party night. Everyone single one of us had an amazing time, and already we are planning to re-visit next year! J


Would you be able to drop me an email when bookings become available for next year?


Thank-you, and Merry Christmas!

Elspeth McIntyre

I wanted to email and thank you so much for putting on such a fantastic event for us on Friday! I have had so many positive reviews from staff this morning and everyone seems to have enjoyed the food, drinks, dancing and atmosphere. 


In particular, the members of staff supporting the event were absolutely great – friendly and very efficient. They really made the night!


Thank you again: and I hope the Christmas parties through the rest of the season are just as successful for you!


Kind regards,

I hope you are well and gearing up for the next bash of Rock Stars to arrive at this week’s parties!  I wanted to drop you a note to thank you again for hosting our staff Christmas party last Friday.  I don’t remember another time when staff have actually said on the night at the party – let’s do this again!  We had a great time and that was due in no small part to yourself for organising, your staff for their cheery and helpful demeanour, and the band for getting everyone on their feet.  All in all it was a great success for us and I think for HRC as a venue.  If you’re doing it again next year – put me on your list now and let me know what you need to secure a booking.


Can I just say, we all had a great time on Sunday, Food was fabulous (portions size was amazing lol) service was first class, and we will all be back

thank you



On behalf of myself and my colleagues, I just wanted to take the opportunity to say thanks for a great Christmas night on Saturday :-) Was lovely to finally meet you, and you and your staff did a fantastic job (special thanks to our server -  Ryan?).


Everyone enjoyed the food concept (much less stuffy than a traditional set meal), although we felt some of the platters were removed while folks were still eating. The Rockaoke was a great success......even if the only folks that managed to get on stage seemed to be from Sky ;-) (We felt we'd gatecrashed their night out lol). Would love to come back to another Rockaoke night! Great fun! Also, the layout of the hall was good, and nobody felt squashed in, like you sometimes do in other venues.

Breakfast with Santa

A million thank yous to all the staff your breakfast with Santa was brilliant  we had a fantastic time my grandchildren loved it. 

Merry christmas to you all

Thank you I'll be booking for next year and telling everyone I know what fantastic value this was congratulations xxxxx
