Budapest Hard Rock Cafe (HRC Budapest for short), is in downtown Budapest, on the historical Vorosmarty Square. The iconic American style cafe opened in Dec 2011 in Budapest with great success.
Besides the 30 HD TV screens, or the playlist featuring Slash, the Rolling Stones or Motorhead, you can expect the classic quality and prices of Hard Rock Cafes in the world: genuine American cuisine, music memorabilia of the world famous icons, and a healthy mix of locals and foreigners. The four-level Hard Rock Cafe is huge, with 1097 square metres (11 808.0097 sq feet): the Rock Shop is on the ground floor, while the first floor is the cafe, restaurant and the main stage.
Out of the 220 seats, the 60 seats on the top floor has good views over the atmospheric Vorosmarty Square and the Vaci street. On the walls of Hard Rock Cafe, you can see precious items of super stars in the world of rock music: the purse of Janis Joplin, the stilettos of Tina Turner, the handwritten mail of Madonna, the suit of John Lennon and Mick Jagger, the guitars of Lenny Kravitz and George Michael, etc.
What to taste at HRC Budapest?
You could start your American gastro tour with sampling the Legendary Experience foods, like the Legendary Burger (ten ounce), or the Hickory Bar-B-Que Rib and Chicken. If you like spicy things, try the classic hot chicken wings. Portions are huge, good for splitting. Don’t forget to drink something in a souvenir HRC cup to take home something Hard Rock with you. The alcohol free Alternative Rock is nice, or you can try any of the Margharitas.

How to get to Budapest Hard Rock Cafe?
The most convenient way to get to HRC is to take the public transport or walk, as the cafe is pretty much in the center, right near the corner of a pedestrian only shopping street (Vaci street). Take the M1 yellow metro line to Vorosmarty Square (Vörösmarty tér) metro station, which is the terminal of the M1 metro line, aka the historical and fun Millennial Underground.
M2, M3 – as all metro lines cross on Deak Square, the heart of the city, and Deak is only 3-5 min on foot from Vorosmarty Square, you can also take a nice short walk to Hard Rock Cafe Budapest.
If you wish to get to the center by car you just have to follow the Centrum sign and look for parking place, then walk for 5-15 minutes to get to Hard Rock Cafe Budapest.
Many local buses have stops around the center within walking distance to Vörösmarty Square. Just to mention some of them: number 7 , 7E , 9, 16, 16A , 173 , 173E .
Liszt Ferenc International airport is located approximately 24 kms from Vörösmarty Square. Taxi fare from the airport is approximately HUF 5,000-7,000.
Parking Information: There are a few parking centers around Vörösmarty and Deák Square. Price is approximately HUF 400 / hour. You can try to park on the streets, but parking spaces on the streets are very limited.
