A twist to every tale, is what makes it interesting. So it holds true for gastronomy as well. With Gurgaon being the hub for multi cuisines, cafes, restaurants, lounges and streets, what makes one stand out over the other, is… the twist! That is exactly what Hard Rock Cafe entails!
The two levelled cafe in India’s most prominent business district, DLF Cyber City, Hard Rock Cafe Gurgaon, comes with a laid-back alfresco open air area. The place isn’t in need of preeminence, it is in need of true connoisseurs of their all American array. The kink in the decor is what sets the tone of the food experience as well!
Get, Set…… Binge!
With ever-changing food trends in this city, twist is the thing that’s required for grabbing the bull by the horns!
