Hard Rock Café Phuket
Tex-Mex Food & Rock n' Roll in Patong Beach0
Opened in November 2009, Hard Rock Café Phuket is the third Thai venue by this famous American brand in Thailand after Hard Rock Hotel Pattaya and Hard Rock Café Bangkok (rumours say that Koh Samui will be next). Located on Rat-U-Thit Rd, the main street in the centre of Patong, Hard Rock Café Phuket delivers great music, Tex-Mex delicacies and a Rock n' Roll merchandising and memorabilia collection with taste and class in a superb two-storey building. Hard Rock Café Phuket is a home from home for all those who love rock music and western food in a classy environment.
The venue is composed of four main areas: a large terrace with an outside stage right under a 12-metre tall electric guitar - trademark and logo of the brand; a huge inside dining room with booth seating on its sides, tables in the centre, a bar and a stage; a boutique where you can purchase T-shirts and other Hard Rock Café Phuket souvenirs; and finally, a dining room upstairs which you can book for private and special parties.
Live Band & Events
The Hard Rock Café Phuket band knows its job. Entertaining the audience with classic rock, hard rock and heavy metal tunes as well as Techno/House music breaks (kids love it as they can dance in front of the stage), their show is well polished. Performing every night from 20:00 till late, the band delivers an impeccable set, and the singers are natural-born entertainers, singing and running around the terrace, climbing on tables with an obvious love of performance.
Hard Rock Café Phuket also organizes special evenings with international, national and local bands.
Food & Drinks
Tex-Mex food rules at Hard Rock Café: from nachos to quesadillas to tupelo chicken tenders (hand-breaded in-house daily) for starters, Legendary burgers with a vast array of toppings (bacon, mushrooms, Cajun seasoning, Blue cheese, you name it...), a choice of smoked meats; sandwiches inspired by their southern roots, salads, and for the sweet mouths a large choice of Häagen-Dazs ice-creams and other delicious pastries and cakes. A kids menu is also available with all children favorites (chicken tenders, hot dogs).
The drink list is also sure to provide something for your taste and quench your thirst: spirits, wines, fruit shakes & smoothies, beers (bottle and draught) are available.
Boutique & Memorabilia Collection
It comes as no surprise to learn that Hard Rock Café owes part of its success to its trademarked merchandising. So the Phuket branch is well-stocked with T-shirts, baseball caps and gadgets.
Another factor of Hard Rock Café's success is its status as a Rock n' Roll museum. Guitars, basses, and clothes from international artists are to be found here: from Axl Rose's white leather jacket (Guns & Roses singer) to Chi Cheng's bass guitar (Deftones bassist) to Kerry King's BC Rich guitar (Slayer's guitarist).
