Hard Rock Cafe Venice

Thanks to its unbeatable location behind St Mark’s Square, all canals lead to the Hard Rock Cafe Venice. There is nowhere better to enjoy delicious American fare while enjoying views of those romantic gondolas than the Hard Rock in its brand new location. Munch away while admiring a mesmerising memorabilia collection that features a Shakira dress, handwritten lyrics by Noel Gallagher of Oasis, a Bon Jovi electric guitar and one of Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten’s jackets. Highlights - Come to know just why Hard Rock Cafe finds itself in over 50 countries - Step foot inside a dining experience with a difference as you set your eyes over exclusive rock memorabilia - Choose from many menus and pick what suits your taste buds the best 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 only gave them a six-month lease. Four decades later, there are 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 marked it 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 (that’s still being written). Choose from one of the following menus: Gold Menu Mains Legendary Burger: 8oz Burger topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, a fried onion-ring and served with seasoned fries Veggie Leggie Burger: Veggie patty topped with courgette, butternut squash and roasted red pepper and served with seasoned fries Honey Mustard Chicken Sandwich: Grilled chicken topped with bacon and cheese served on a toasted brioche bun with seasoned fries Chicken Caesar Salad: Romaine lettuce topped with grilled chicken, croutons and shaved parmesan cheese with Caesar dressing Twisted Mac, Chicken and Cheese Pasta: Cavatappi macaroni in a three-cheese sauce with roasted peppers, topped with parmesan parsley breadcrumbs and grilled chicken breast Dessert Lil Brownie: Vanilla ice cream and hot fudge on a chocolate brownie, topped with fresh whipped cream Drinks A coffee, a tea or a soft drink Diamond Menu Starters Lil Feta Salad Lil Wings Mains Legendary Burger: 8oz Burger topped with bacon, cheddar cheese, a fried onion-ring and served with seasoned fries Veggie Leggie Burger: Veggie patty topped with courgette, butternut squash and roasted red pepper and served with seasoned fries Barbeque Combo: Pork BBQ ribs and hickory smoked pulled pork, served with seasoned fries, cowboy beans and citrus coleslaw Herb Grilled Chicken Breast: Grilled herb marinated chicken breast with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables Chicken Caesar Salad: Romaine lettuce topped with grilled chicken, croutons and shaved parmesan cheese with Caesar dressing Twisted Mac, Chicken and Cheese Pasta: Cavatappi macaroni in a three-cheese sauce with roasted peppers, topped with parmesan parsley breadcrumbs and grilled chicken breast Dessert Lil Brownie: Vanilla ice cream and hot fudge on a chocolate brownie, topped with fresh whipped cream Drinks A coffee, a tea or a soft drink
