Hard Rock Café Madrid
The Hard Rock Café is steeped in music history, packed with authentic memorabilia, and known for slinging some of the best American food outside the US. The Madrid location is no exception. Stop by for an American meal—the burger is tough to beat—or visit for a concert to add a novelty shirt from Spain to your Hard Rock Café collection.
The Americana-infused Hard Rock Café has made its mark on the global theme restaurant scene over four decades. Travelers have been collecting the brand's coveted t-shirts since the first location opened in London. This kitschy eatery—that's also a music venue and museum—is known for serving global travelers classic American dishes, from burgers and fries to milkshakes.
To visit the Madrid location, you can book a table online, or try for same-day seating. If the weather's nice, you should opt for the terrace, or stay inside to admire the rock paraphernalia like a Roy Orbison guitar or a Madonna costume. You can grab refreshments here after exploring Retiro Park, or visiting the National Archaeological Museum.

Visiting Madrid's top art museums
