For more than 20 years, our Hard Rock Cafe has been one of the hottest event venues in Orlando. From business meetings to CD release parties, we’ve done it all. See what our special event guests have to say about their Hard Rock experience by reading the following testimonials.

Orange County Arts Education Center

"Hard Rock Live hosted the Orange County Arts Education Center’s Fifth Annual Principals Appreciation Breakfast, celebrating Orange County Public Schools’ Administrators commitment to arts in the schools. Hard Rock Live and its staff made the event exceptional, taking care of every detail from the red carpet welcome to an amazing breakfast to a professional presentation on stage. When we found our event bumped from its scheduled home, Hard Rock Live welcomed us and worked closely with us in planning the event in a short time frame. When we arrived on the day of the event, everything was in place and a helpful staff made our event comes to life. Hard Rock Live's technical staff made our series of performances, videos and speeches seamless. The catering crew presented a beautiful breakfast served by their wonderful service staff that made all of our guests feel welcome. In our follow up with our guests, we had so many compliments about the event, and we owe much of that praise to Hard Rock Live. As event presenters, we have planned many events in many different venues, but Hard Rock Live was the most successful because of the planning and pleasant attitude of its staff. Thank you."

Interop Technologies

"I have received several emails from our guests, and they are all raving about what a great time they had. I hope that we have the chance to work together in the future. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second in recommending Hard Rock Live Orlando to any of my friends or colleagues. You all are a class act!"

Holiday Inn Club Vacations

"What were we waiting for? We have been to other venues and have held our event with top named acts and have never worked with such a professional, accommodating staff. Even in the heat of the moment as the bands were running through sound check, production was loading in the furniture, our teams rehearsed and emotions ran high--- the Hard Rock crew never skipped a beat or lost their cool! They were ready, willing and certainly able to accommodate our every need...we will surely be back!"

Florida Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Contractors Assoc.

"Your staff was excellent and our Board members and spouses told me repeatedly how much they enjoyed the Hard Rock experience. It was fun, the food was great, the docent (the self-proclaimed ‘resident geek’) was entertaining and knowledgeable - a nice addition to the evening. We appreciate your staff's work and accommodation and I hope to have the opportunity to work with you and your team again in the future!"

Winter Springs High School

"We have had our Prom at Hard Rock Live for the past 6 years. Before Hard Rock, we tried several different venues. Now we don't even look anywhere else. The food is amazing, the service is incredible, and the dance floor is huge. It's a unique atmosphere that just can't be beat. We had our Prom 2 days ago and I'm already putting down a deposit for next year"
