Hard Rock Detroit

Detroit’s downtown core has few recognizable franchises. I am grateful for the most part for our unique offerings, but a smattering of these franchises is appreciated in terms of national recognition and standard. One international franchise that is prominent is the Hard Rock Café in Campus Martius. I have been to many cities with the franchise but never eaten at one until earlier this week. The presentation and quality of the food at the Detroit location was really nice for a restaurant revolving around the burger. The service was beyond enthusiastic and the flare, sported by wait staff, was plentiful. One can shop from one’s table and add it to the restaurant tab. The space is pleasingly lit, warmly decorated, and an overall nice experience. Like any other franchise, one forgets that they are in any particular city. The only connection I had to Detroit while dining was sitting under Diana Ross’s dress.

    no connection to Detroit? what about the giant stained glass window featuring Detroit/Motown stars? i know it’s a stretch having Kiss portrayed but they did “Detroit Rock City”.

    Maybe if I wasn’t so taken by my tasty quesadilla I may have actually noticed the stained glass. I will look for it next time.

    I think that there is a connection to Detroit at our Hard Rock, but since the day it opened I have wished that it was much stronger. There seems like there would be a plethora of memorabilia connected to Detroit that could be displayed, but I understand that a chain is a chain and can’t always please the home crowd.
