The Hard Rock Cafe
The cafe is newly renovated cafe last year and displayed some memorabilias. The setting is cozy for the diner while enjoying the food and the music.
The story of the birth of Hard Rock International’s memorabilia collection is itself a part of music history. The collection was started when Eric Clapton, a regular customer at the original Hard Rock Cafe London, asked the staff if he could hang his guitar on the wall to mark his favourite bar stool as “his spot.”
