Love the Hard Rock Live, it's a great small venue, bartenders are quick and ushers are courteous. Almost never a bad seat. Have been a few times before, just seems like they need to upgrade the sound system or tech. Strange that they have screens,...More

Recently saw Beth Hart and Kenny Wayne Shepard who both put on a great show. The Hard Rock venue was a real drag on the experience. Building has poor sound acoustics and a sound guy that only knows how to make it worse. I must...More

Great show, great acoustics, fast bartenders I wish the screens on either side of the stage worked but really not a big deal. Small venue and you could see great.

It would be a bit insane to go there just to visit another HRC (I have, however, done that), but it is a good place to have something to eat during the concert, and it is a must for HRCs' fans. Food and beverages selection...More

My husband had a blast at the Modest Mouse concert. The show was on 4/20/18, lots of seating. Great sound, plenty of bathrooms & bar areas. Security at the front was nice, felt safe. This was our first won't be our last concert.

An uber fun evening at Hard Rock Live. We were able to get a table seat for this sold out show. The seating is tight by design, more seats for sale in this medium sized venue. The popcorn was greasy, the pretzel was good served...More

Great venue, not a bad seat in the place. Saw George Lopez, great show. Friendly security staff and employees who showed you your seats. Go inside first and access the bar from the back side, lines are shorter. Very friendly bartenders who make amazing drinks.
