#996 - Hard Rock Cafe, Seattle - 3/4/2010

Being a Hard Rock Cafe, this place is primarily yuppie-ish 20-year-olds mingling among artifacts of the rock icons of 50-year-olds.  There is, of course, the nod to famous locals -- Hendrix, Cobain, etc. --
and among this stuff you'll actually find some items less than 50 years old.  The wood decor and lights are pleasant, the staff were all unusually nice, the bar is serviceable, and the food is fairly good.  It also looks like they're trying to book some bands that are a little more hip than Top Forty homages on the walls (with the friends of the band standing out sharply from the preppy regulars) .  It's not the sort of place I'll go often, but if you react to the term "guitar god" with reverence rather than rolling your eyes, you'll enjoy it.
