Excursions in Cleveland - OH: All the greatest qualities of American hospitality come to life at the Hard Rock Cafe, where you will enjoy delicious fare in a rockin’ atmosphere. As you feast on your delicious meal, admire a dazzling memorabilia collection that pays homage to global stars and legendary artists such as BB King, Elvis Presley, Tina Turner and Ella Fitzgerald. Pride of place usually goes to a local legend such as James Brown in Atlanta, whose matador trousers are on display, or Diana Ross in Detroit.
Like all great revolutions, the Hard Rock Cafe wasn’t meant to succeed. It was 1971 and as the Swinging Sixties had given way to the Super Seventies, fashions and tastes were changing. Two hungry young Americans were in London and couldn’t find a decent place to eat a decent burger… so they opened up a joint in the English capital. Their landlord didn’t think it would last and gave them just a six-month lease. Four decades later, there almost 200 Hard Rock Cafes in more than 50 countries worldwide.
The first T-shirt hit the streets in ‘74 and the first piece of memorabilia came, fittingly, by chance in ‘79 when Eric Clapton asked to hang his Lead II Fender guitar over his favourite bar stool and thus mark as his spot. Today, the rock 'n' roll collection has more than 74,000 pieces and is the largest of its kind. By 1982, the Hard Rock Cafe had gone global and the rest, as they say, is history (and it’s still being written)!
