Located at Beach Walk along the shopping belt of Waikiki. Level 1 – shop front with all Hard Rock’s merchandise. Level 2 – restaurant that serve breakfast, lunch and dinner. Cool place to hang out! Enjoy!

History and a name are really what this restaurant has going for it. The history of being surrounded by Johnny Cash's suit and John Lennon's 12 string. That's what the Hard Rock Cafe name promises you. The food, however, was not great.

Not sure but l would think it’s very likely to have a live band playing. I’d ring and double check. See if you can book because it can get very busy.

They do have live music but I'm not sure which days they have them. One of the days that we were there, they had kids playing instruments and singing. It was amazing! As for dress code Id suggest near casual.

Our open-aired Hawaiian design includes a stage for the best bands on the island performing classic and current pop and rock hits from 5-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Enjoy happy hour specials from 3pm-7pm and 9pm-close everyday. Our island specialites include fresh fish tacos, Legendary Hawaiian cheeseburgers, and award winning tropical cocktails. And don't forget to pick up one of our Honolulu classic Hard Rock T-shirt or sweatshirt. We are located at the corner of Kalakaua Avenue and Beach Walk Avenue in the heart of Waikiki.
