Microbrews, musicians and a kick-ass sound system combine to make you feel as if you’re in a hippie music nerd’s college apartment, minus the patchouli. With portraits of rock & roll heroes lining the walls, comfy sofas and a collection of live concerts on CDR, this place pulls off what every Hard Rock Cafe aims to do. All 16 beers on tap run through clean, well-maintained lines.
