Hard Rock Cafe
Started in London by two American fellows Hard Rock Café is famous all around the world with its 138 locations in 42 countries. The memorabilia found in the Hard Rock Cafes is a collection of over 70,000 items that is by far the largest of it’s kind, but it all started with one guitar (a Fender Lead II) from Eric Clapton who was a regular at a hip café in London where the attitude was anything goes. He gave the guitar to the men to hang on the wall and the next week a Gibson Les Paul arrived from Pete Townsend with a note that stated “mine’s as good as his. Love, Pete.” And so the story goes. A beloved Hard Rock Café is now located in Prague, one of the most visited and most beautiful cities in the world. Situated in a four-story building with a colorfully decorated neo Renaissance façade, Hard Rock Café Prague, the largest in Europe, covers three floors and boasts two bars and, of course, iconic Rock and Roll decor including a 5 meter chandelier in the shape of a guitar. The memorabilia showcased at the café includes, among many items, a pair of studded black bell-bottom pants from The King himself, a black shirt embroidered with silver and gold eagles once belonging to the famous Man in Black, Johnny Cash, and a black tuxedo coat, top hat and cane from Madonna’s Virgin Tour of 1985. Hard Rock Café offers American style food including a variety of tasty appetizers, burgers, salads, steaks, and desserts. And of course, you can purchase the traditional Hard Rock Café t-shirts, sweatshirts and mugs.
