It a place where you enjoy loud music, good drinks with friends. The place normally crowded in night with too much sound. But if you like loud noise and enjoy good drinks this is the place to be.

While traveling all over the world I always try to go to the Hard Rock Cafe. Same as the one in Madrid. (More then 20 times already) Always nice always friendly always good! Small minor thing: I always drink the Southern Rock and/or Purple Haze. At the HRC Madrid they didn't know how to mix. There was to much rum... More

We were staying in the hotel in which hrc is located. We had a BA voucher which give us a two course silver menu plus soft drinks. The silver menu was just a selection of 4/5 popular items.

HRC Madrid was not as central as some Hard Rocks but the Metro makes it an easy trip. You have to order the local legendary burger as it was the best burger my husband has ever eaten! Great place for a rocking time.

Good old Hard Rock Cafe atmosphere. Busy and friendly staff; also well trained. Food is... OK. I usually sit at the bar, where beer is slightly cheaper and chat with the bartender, when he has some time(ten secs max). Make sure to book a table if you're visiting after 7:00 pm though. In short, nothing special but fun.

We ate here on Saturday night and it was heaving. We had pre booked a priority booking a few days before we came to Madrid on the Hard Rock website. It doesn't guarantee a table, but it gives you a priority for getting a table when you arrive. We stated our preferred time and printed off the voucher. When we... More

Blame the kids. They started the tradition of visiting HRC wherever available. Initially a trade-off for arts museums and cathedrals - we are now all in agreement. They make good burgers, but that is just part of the deal. For those of us at the right age, the music is almost always a hit, as well as the relics (David... More

Staying in Barrio de Salamanca

Neighbourhood Profile
Barrio de Salamanca
Broad, tree-lined avenues with pretty streetlights frame the neighbourhood of Barrio Salamanca. With beautiful condominium buildings that make up most blocks in this area, this part of town is refined and quiet. It is also host to a few of the city's large shopping avenues, including Calle Serrano and Calle Jose Ortega y Gasset. A walk down these streets will reveal upscale chains, small boutiques, and plenty of opportunities for shopping or checking out the stylish displays. The locals here are polished and fashionable, the atmosphere is leisurely, and the lush Retiro Park on the southern border is yet another opportunity to enjoy the outdoors. A stroll through Barrio Salamanca is all about admiring the beautiful architecture, window-shopping, and people-watching in this upper-crust corner of Madrid.
