Located on the second floor of the DFS Galleria, announced by a 24-foot-tall guitar at the entrance, the Saipan Hard Rock Café has been designed to flow together with the international retail store.  At 14,400 square feet, the restaurant is one of the largest restaurants within the global franchise, seating 370 diners.  Featuring hardwood floors, oak wainscoting, checkered tablecloths, and various rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia; this dining experience provides a casual Americana appeal.

A unique feature is the café’s circular design. Everything centers around an octagon-shaped bar centered under a domed ceiling that features a trompe l’oeil mural of sky and clouds with Hard Rock’s famous “Globe of the World” chandelier suspended from the middle. Designed to double as a nightclub, the raised seating area converts easily to a performance stage.
