Friendships, fun and Hard Rock Cafe, Pune

Abhik has already guest blogged for us once and it makes me really happy everytime my friends come back to become a part of TTL. His posts are short and precise, just what we all want to know and this boy sure does know his food and football.

Being from a city where there is no “Hard Rock Café’s “ (Editor’s note: He is from Calcutta or Kolkata), I was excited about visiting this particular place. So here I was with my junior & high school buddies, for my 1st ever visit to a Hard Rock Café in Pune.

The location is a bit away from the city’s main center, so one either needs to come by a car or need to walk about 10 mins from the main road to reach the place. Once you enter the place, you won’t complain about the fact that it is located on the outskirts.


The place is a heaven on earth, if you are a classic rock fan, the ambiance makes you feel that you have entered into the museum of rockstars. They mostly played Bob Dylan, Alice Cooper, Coldplay, the playlist was perfect. We happen to go during the Fifa World Cup, & there was this giant TV, where one can enjoy the match, with the booze & the food. They mostly decorated like with different guitars, & outfits of legendary classic rock and pop singers. There is this elevated stage with musical instruments, where live concerts are being held, only on Thursdays. (unfortunately we didn’t go on a Thursday)


What makes hard rock café out of the box from other pubs may be is the food. I was told the burgers are the specialty there, & is a must try. We ordered a tower of beer, and a jumbo combo snacks along with it. It had fried chickens, egg rolls, fried bacons, potato wedges, smashed potatoes, and salads. The food is probably among the most delicious appetizer I had, a perfect combination to go with your tower of beer. The other most popular appetizer there is the fish and chips.


Overall it was an amazing experience at the hard rock café in Pune, if you happen to be in Pune do give Hard Rock Café a chance, you won’t be disappointed. Please try to attend on a Thursday if you are interested in the concerts.

I would rate a 9/10.

Thank you so much for the review Abhik, there is another HRC post lined up for you guys and I don’t think my love for the place needs a mention 😉
