Happy birthday, Hard Rock!
In 1971, two music lovers from America opened a hamburger restaurant in London. They did it in a former Rolls Royce dealership in front of the celebrated Hyde Park and they called it Hard Rock Cafe.
Over the years, it became popular with well-known rock stars and artists. The first live show was Paul McCartney with The Wings in 1973 and the brand’s first item of memorabilia was a Fender guitar, given by Eric Clapton to mark the restaurant as his favorite place. Today, the franchise has the largest collection of memorabilia from new and legendary musicians around the world.
The first Hard Rock Café arrived in Colombia in 2001. On June 14 of this year, it joined the celebration of the brand’s 48th birthday and a tribute to the Rolling Stones and other rock classics.

The Casa experience also includes art exhibitions, a special Colombian coffee bar and events that energize the city’s creative industry.
