I'm proud to say these numbers mean top 5 worldwide.

My first Hard Rock visit was the renegade Amsterdam Cafe back in 1995.
Soon after I've visited my first corporate cafe in Dallas, a beautiful temple of rock.
I was hooked and started collecting Hard Rock Cafe t-shirts and shot glasses.
Today I'm a proud owner of more than 400 Hard Rock t-shirts and 1000 shot glasses.
Only in recent years I've thinned out a bit my shot glass collection. My cabinets are full.

Amongst my favourite Hard Rock Cafes are/were Montego Bay, Key West, Skydome Toronto and Dubai.

 The internet made trading and connecting with fellow collectors a big thing.
 Many great friendships evolved, going beyond this hobby. Social media keeps us well connected.
Since 2002 I've attended several collector meetings in the USA and worldwide.

My goal is to visit all Hard Rock locations. Many great trips to places unknown followed up till today.
I treasure my memories here on my website's picture pages. Check'em out!
