In an impressive and iconic building on Adrianou Street, just a few steps away from Monastiraki Square and the eponymous station of the metro-suburban railway, Hard Rock has appeared again in Athens since July 2015 –currently the only operating area is the one with the moveable roof, which brings to mind a patio– after several years of absence. Get ready, then, to experience the most Hard Rock experiences with rock 'n' roll music, authentic Hard Rock cocktails and tasty dishes that you will never forget.
Here, you will enjoy award-winning Hard Rock cocktails such as Hurricane, Margarita, Fruitapalooza and non-alcoholic proposals, served in collectible-souvenir glasses (you can buy them at an additional charge) and made from fresh raw ingredients.
Hard Rock, however, is famous for its classic American cuisine, whose creations will surely satisfy even the most demanding. The stars of the menu are the juicy and mouth-watering burgers with ground beef of excellent quality of which the Original Legendary Burger (smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, fried onion rings, crispy lettuce and tomato) and the Hickory Barbeque Bacon Chesseburger (with homemade hickory barbeque sauce, caramelized onions, cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, crispy lettuce and tomato) are the difference-makers.
Its best sellers also include the Jumbo Combo for group of friends (platter with the most popular appetizers such as chicken wings, onion rings, chicken fillet, potato skins and spring rolls accompanied with honey-mustard sauce, hickory barbeque sauce and blue cheese sauce), the Chicken Caesar salad (lettuce, croutons, chicken breast and parmesan peel with homemade Caesar dressing) and the classic Club Sandwich. The menu also features suggestions for vegetarians like the Veggie Leggie (burger with roasted portobello mushroom, zucchini, yellow squash, roasted red peppers in buns with mayo, lettuce, tomato slice and baked, sweet onions).
Those of you who choose it for a relaxed coffee (authentic, Greek coffee is served exclusively in this Hard Rock cafe), be sure to accompany it with one of its delicious pastries like Hot Fudge Brownie (with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge, grated walnut, chocolate sprinkles, fresh whipped cream and cherry) that makes the best impression.
The music ranges from classic rock sounds to mainstream choices, without this meaning that it doesn't follow the original rock 'n' roll scene, around which revolves the philosophy of Hard Rock Cafe. Striking is also the fact that on its site you will be able to see up close important musical memorabilia (collectibles) from the Hard Rock collection, such as the acoustic guitar signed by Chris Martin of Coldplay, the black bass with nails belonging to the American rocker, Gene Simmons, the vintage costume that Katy Perry wore on the "Hellen Show" in January 2012, etc.
Rock Shop, the retailer of clothes and accessories of Hard Rock Cafe, also operates in the building, where you will find a collection (women's, men's and children's collection) inspired by the rock 'n' roll culture as well Hard Rock Cafe collectibles that are designed exclusively for the store in Athens. Those that stand out include the classic t-shirts with the name of Athens (in Greek and English) and the City t-shirt with a strong Greek element, depicting the Acropolis and other popular places in Greece.
