After a day of sunbathing and swimming or surfing in the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica, satisfy your hunger at Hard Rock Cafe San Jose. Our cafe is easy to find; just look for the giant Hard Rock Cafe guitar outside the building. We're located directly in front of Route 1, the most important highway in Costa Rica, across from the soon-to-be-completed Costa Rica Convention Center, and just 7 kilometers south of Juan Santamaria International Airport. Our location in the center of one of most important hotel districts of San Jose ensures quick and easy access to delicious food any time you desire. Hard Rock with Costa Rican Flair At our cafe in San Jose, you'll enjoy a classic Hard Rock experience with a little taste of Costa Rica. The capital of Costa Rica, San Jose is located in the middle of the Central Valley area, which is surrounded by lush, majestic mountains. You can see these beauties from any seat in our cafe, especially those near our 360-degree stage that "imitates" the surrounding area to offer a perfect view of the outside. For even better views of the mountains around our cafe, venture outside to our two large terraces, which feature fire pits for cool, windy nights. We also have an exclusive VIP room that can be used for corporate meetings and social celebrations with up to 60 people.
