Hard Rock Cafe opens its door in Kathmandu


Kathmandu, Durbar Marg (October 2021) – Hard Rock Cafe® Kathmandu has opened its doors at Sherpa Mall, Durbar Marg, in the heart of iconic Kathmandu on October 28, 2021, at 7 pm.

Along with memorabilia from some of the music industry’s biggest names, amongst them Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Metallica, the Rolling Stones, and Michael Jackson, it features a US-inspired menu and hand-crafted cocktails. Sited on the first and top floor of the building, the restaurant can take up to 260 covers indoors as well as on an outdoor terrace, looking over the roofs of Durbar Marg. A highlight of the menu is undoubtedly the burgers for which Hard Rock® is famous.

That includes the Legendary Burger with its proprietary blend of buffalo meat, with cheddar cheese, crispy onion ring, leaf lettuce, and vine-ripened tomato served with Hard Rock®’s signature steak sauce.

Elsewhere on the menu, salads come with grilled, fresh, free-range chicken or California-style cobb – chicken with roasted corn, black beans, and imported cheddar cheese, while sandwiches include barbecue pulled chicken or grilled honey mustard chicken all served with seasoned or cheese fries.

One of the stars of the menu is the baby back pork ribs, specifically imported from Denmark for Hard Rock Cafe® in Kathmandu. 750g of ribs, seasoned with a signature spice blend, then glazed with house-made barbecue sauce and grilled to perfection, served with seasoned fries, coleslaw, and ranch-style beans. 

Along with a selection of bottled beers and wines, there will be a range of ‘boozy milkshakes and signature cocktails including Hurricane – a 1940s New Orleans classic comprised of white rum, a blend of orange, mango, pineapple juice, and grenadine, finished with a float dark rum and amaretto.

For those keen to snap up a memento of their visit, there is a Hard Rock® – Rock Shop selling themed merchandise.
