Venue Description

Hard Rock Cafe Louisville is located downtown in the 4th Street Live! complex between Liberty Street and Muhammad Ali Boulevard. The cafe is within walking distance of the Kentucky International Convention Center and just minutes from the city's performing arts theaters. HRC Louisville features memorabilia from local artists Tantric and Flaw, and Muhammad Ali with the Beatles. Rock n' roll classics featured throughout the cafe include items from Madonna, Elton John, Rod Stewart, and "the King" himself. We also feature an outdoor Aerosmith display, the first of its kind in a Hard Rock Cafe.
