Are you ready to Rock Sydney! Located in Sydney, NSW, on the East Coast of Australia, Hard Rock Cafe Sydney is at Harbourside, Darling Harbour. Close to the central business district, Darling Harbour is a favourite waterfront destination for leisure, entertainment, dining, and shopping.

With its spectacular Harbour setting, Darling Harbour has many of Australia's key tourist attractions including IMAX, Sydney Aquarium and Sydney Convention Centre. It is also a favourite place for Sydneysiders to spend their time relaxing and celebrating.



Is the event menu only burgers? Hardly. Our standard fare features classic Hard Rock tupelo chicken tenders, fajitas and chilli beef. We can create kick-ass menus for even the most discerning tastes. Guests of Hard Rock Cafe Sydney can enjoy fresh, high-quality items from Hard Rock's made-from-scratch menu.


In addition to its food, Hard Rock Cafe's extensive, award-winning drinks menu includes Hurricanes, Margaritas, signature favorites and Alternative Rock (alcohol-free) beverage all available in Hard Rock Cafe souvenir collectible glassware. Hard Rock's cocktails are handcrafted, just like its cuisine, and as authentic as the memorabilia on the walls.
