To give a feel of what working at Hard Rock Cafe London is like, we can offer comment from Rita Gilligan MBE, who has worked at Hard Rock Cafe London since the first day of opening in 1971. Rita says, “I started as a waitress on the very first day of opening Hard Rock Cafe London and have been here ever since. I’m thrilled to see the opening of a brand new Hard Rock Cafe in Piccadilly Circus and seeing our Hard Rock legacy evolve. Watching Hard Rock Cafe grow over the years, It’s the staff who made Hard Rock what it is, our motto is love all, serve all, and that motto is ripe today as it was the day we opened on the 14th June 1971 and it very much applies to anybody that comes in through our doors. We started with 46 people and now we have a staff of 38,000 in 75 countries."
The brand’s newest cafe marks the first Hard Rock location to showcase the brands modern vision, which will include a new design style, the world’s largest Rock Shop, contemporary memorabilia, and a new menu. The iconic location was strategically selected for its position in the heart of Piccadilly Circus, the capital’s entertainment hub. The more than 1,800-square-metre, multi-level state-of-the-art cafe will feature Hard Rock’s one-of-a-kind blend of music, entertainment, iconic merchandise and authentic American food and drink.
Hard Rock Cafe Piccadilly Circus will complement the classic Hyde Park location, the first Hard Rock Cafe in the world. This location has been a pivotal part of London’s music and food history since 1971, when two Americans, Isaac Tigrett and Peter Morton, established the casual burger restaurant for them and their music-loving friends. The first-of-its-kind restaurant, steeped in music history, will remain on Old Park Lane and keep its historic décor elements in homage to Hard Rock’s roots.
