You won't get the autographed guitar on the wall that you've been staring at all evening, not unless you shell out the big bucks. Still, however, that doesn't mean that you'll leave Cancun without a souvenir.
If there's any venue in Cancun that is obligatory to visit in order to complete the refrain "been there, done that…" it's here at the Hard Rock Café in Cancun. True to its international theme, the Hard Rock Café is a 1950's style diner that is themed around the music that helped to make the United States one of the most prominent cultural icons throughout the latter half of the past century. Patrons to the Hard Rock Café in Cancun will be hard pressed not to notice the Rock 'n Roll memorabilia displayed all around the dining room - autographed guitars, T-Shirts, Juke Boxes and more. Pick up a T-Shirt on your way out... you almost have to.
But enough about the merchandise; where's the real thing? Fortunately for vacationers who come from halfway around the world to visit the Hard Rock Café in Cancun, the management here does a great job in delivering the live music to the customers. All weekend long - from Thursday night through to Tuesday night - a live band comes and plays here. Usually, the music isn't half bad. Starting at 10:30 in the evening, these live performances are usually a great stop of the pub and club crawl throughout Cancun.
And when they play recorded favorites, the music here is bound to be good. That's a major factor which contributes to the good vibes that abound here. Also, the friendly service and the great food make this one of the more enjoyable restaurants in Cancun. The food itself is far from punishing. In fact, it even incorporates the zesty flavors of Mexico, making the Hard Rock - of all places - a culturally sensitive place for pretty good cuisine. Alongside the typical United States style burgers, cheeseburgers, French fries and malt shakes, the Hard Rock Café in Cancún also features spicy Mexican dishes.
Eat lunch here, or dinner - the place opens up at 11 o'clock in the morning and stays open until two in the morning. These extended hours help to make it the bustling scene that it is. Tourists come here for their burger and fries fix at just about any old time of day while young hipsters come to check out the weekend Rock 'n Roll shows that start peaking around midnight. While the later hours might intimidate smaller children, the Hard Rock Café is definitely a family friendly place for lunch and relatively early dinner.
