Live Music & Restaurant in Seattle
Hard Rock Cafe Seattle
Est. February 10, 2010
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 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, our Hard Rock Cafe mixes in as much of authentic Seattle as possible, from the existing timbers of our Pike Street building to our city-specific memorabilia.
Experience Seattle’s Vibrant Music Scene
Our 14,000-square-foot cafe in Seattle 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 brand. The cafe also offers a unique memorabilia experience, with hundreds of iconic items commemorating Seattle’s vibrant music history on display, such as Eddie Vedder’s acoustic guitar and the doorway from Robert Lang Studios signed by many iconic Seattle bands.
Seattle’s Music Destination
Hard Rock Cafe Seattle’s best-kept secret is the second-floor music venue dubbed Cavern Club, an homage to the iconic Liverpool basement rock club where The Beatles forged their musical identity in the early 60s. Cavern Club is a destination for local original acts and national touring acts, with room for 450, top-of-the-line audio systems, and a prime downtown location with adjacent rooftop terrace overlooking Pike Place Market.
