The Hard Rock phenomenon arrived in the city in 2004, and this spacious diner-style cafe - with room for 350 rock rubberneckers - pays homage to Ireland's, and the world's, rich musical heritage. Bono's shades and hand-written lyrics take centre stage in the U2 section, while a shirt worn by Elvis shares wall space with Macca's boots, Madonna's jacket and, of all things, a rug owned by Jimi Hendrix. In between ogling the rock and pop paraphernalia and watching music videos on the plasma screens, get stuck into the all-American menu's smokehouse, burger, hot sandwich and salad selections. Then head to the souvenir shop and bag a ubiquitous HRC Dublin T-shirt to show the folks back home. Look for the big neon guitar shining down on Temple Bar.
