Hard Rock Cafe Phuket doesn’t need to be introduced anymore but when it arrived in Patong Beach a few years back, it was a pretty big deal. If you already came here, you already know that Phuket doesn’t lack of live bands. Not all of them are good but people don’t seem to be so picky after few beers anyway. However there are a few place where the live bands can really sing and play.
So was Hard Rock Cafe able to take a ride against the 2 most famous live band venues in Phuket: Red Hot and Rock City? You bet they did! Considering the remote location on the outskirt of patong and the higher prices, it is a challenge. But the talent of the singers and musicians combined with a world famous name worked like a charm. Not to mention the iconic giant guitar. And maybe the fact that Hooters was just next door helped a bit? 😉
The band is talented and will take you away with their voices, sound and songs as soon as you sit down. It’s hard to resists. Hard rock is divided in indoors and outdoors and VIP area upstairs but the outdoors gets full first and that’s where the live band is anyway. (You didn’t travel such a long way to get indoors).
A big draw of course is the food! Some would say “why would you come to Thailand to eat American Ribs?”. Try the BBQ ribs and you will know why… and after a while a bit of comfort food can be welcome. To find where the Hard Rock café is located, just follow the iconic gigantic guitar proudly standing next to the Swissotel Phuket (that used to be Dusit D2). Of course expect to find the ‘Rock Shop’, the Hard Rock Cafe souvenir shop. Here you can buy the legendary ‘Hard Rock Cafe Phuket’ so everyone knows you were there… but I do have one myself.
