Hard Rock Café Orlando Secret Tour

Do you want to go on a secret tour at Hard Rock Café in Orlando?

You heard that right, a secret tour through back rooms, down memorabilia filled hallways and away from the hustle and bustle of the main dining and drinking area.

If you play your cards right you could end up with one heck of an experience with this behind the scenes tour like at the largest Hard Rock in the world.

How to Get A Tour

Most people don’t know that this opportunity even exists.

When you arrive at Hard Rock Café ask the reservationist about the VIP tour.

There are a number of special ‘VIBE’ hosts that are available at various times to give you the ultimate rock star experience.

If a host is available you will get a confirmation on a tour time.

Someone like Randy Rock will meet you at the reservation booth just before the scheduled time before you head off to explore some of the lesser known treasures inside Hard Rock Café Orlando.

What Will You See?

I know you are asking yourself, “What’s so special about a tour at Hard Rock Café Orlando when you see all the memorabilia on the around when you’re dining?”

Well there is a lot of stuff right in front of your face that you didn’t even know was there.

At the start of the tour you will head to the second floor and into the Woodstock Room.

Check out the cool items on the walls and get a unique story about many of the items.

Before you leave the room look for the gold circle on the floor in the middle of the room.

If you stand on it and speak with a bit of volume you will hear your echo –the room is perfectly acoustic.

Just outside the room you may notice a brick façade. 

These bricks actually came from the famous Cavern Club, where the Beatles played over 200 concerts.

The John Lennon Room

The next stop on your tour will take you down hallways that have a few interesting pieces of memorabilia, but the real surprise is at the end of the hallway.

Inside The John Lennon Room you will find that white is the dominate color and the space is filled with a number of items that were donated by Yoko Ono –in addition to items that Hard Rock has purchased over the years.

Here you will find a love seat that John Lennon wrote many Beatles and solo songs and a replica of the white piano that John used.

This replica has over 50 keys that have been signed by well-known pianists including: Alicia Keys, Billy Joel, Elton John and Paul McCartney.

Outside on the balcony you may notice that the view is reminiscent of The Eagles’ Hotel California album cover.

This space is available to rent.

Head to The Attic

To get to the Attic you’ve got to head down a few hallways, passing even more memorabilia, to get to the elevator that will get you to the attic.

Once there you will be met by a number of interesting items.

Signatures and messages from Alice Cooper, Carlos Santana and other cover the walls while the space is a hodgepodge of items.

You can step in the actual booth that Elvis Presley recorded his first tune.

The Voice-O-Graph booth charged 35 cents for his firs recording on vinyl.

The tour is great and worth the extra time being spent at Hard Rock Café Orlando before or after your meal.

You should expect to spend anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour on the tour.

If you have any time constraints let your host know so they can try their best to accommodate you.

The best time to take the tour is before the Happy Hour and dinner rush during the week.
