The Hard Rock Café in Lyon

This is the essential new address in Lyon, inaugurated in November 2016 in the very heart of the Presqu’île. At the origin of the project are Mathieu Cochard and Thibault Salvat, two enthusiasts based in Lyon…

Mathieu Cochard and Thibault Salvat, can you tell us about yourselves?

Mathieu :
As the son of a restaurateur, I've always been passionate about cooking. I studied at Vatel Lyon, and as soon as I had pocketed by MBA, I was appointed Sales Manager at the Brasserie Georges for 4 years, prior to accepting numerous positions abroad: in Washington DC, Chad, and in Switzerland, in Geneva and Lausanne. 
Thibault :
After successfully completing a Bachelor's Degree at Vatel, I was put in charge of purchases at the Warwick Reine Astrid hotel in Lyon before working in Belgium, Australia and Switzerland. Like Mathieu, I'm an enthusiastic cook.

Why a Hard Rock Café in Lyon?

Tourism in Lyon is booming, making this a great time to launch a project. And we really wanted to create a living space such as a Hard Rock Café, magnificently located along the banks of the Rhône, in the very centre of Lyon in the Haussmann-style Grolée district. This area is currently being renovated and has a promising future.
And of course, the Hard Rock Café concept, which is both off-the-wall and trendy, is perfectly in line with our choice of a location that combines authenticity, creativity, a rock 'n' roll attitude and refinement.

What are the specific characteristics of the Hard Rock Café in Lyon?

Although the Hard Rock Café in Lyon obviously has all the characteristics of the brand, it also has its own identity: a kitchen that opens out onto the restaurant, the wish to offer, at any time of day, classic Hard Rock Café dishes prepared using local and seasonal products, provided by such partners as Sicaba, Pralus, Chantal Plasse, Histoire des Glaces, Victor et Compagnie, Le Boulanger de Saint-Just... And a form of gastronomy that is able to embrace new trends such as veggie meals, platters of pork meats and cheeses, not forgetting Lyon's famous quenelles.

What's more, we have also equipped our Café with seminar areas and a wine-tasting cellar… both of which give it real character. And of course the Rock Shop store sells the brand's essentials items, as well as specific new articles sporting our own logo, such as Hard Rock Café Lyon beers and wines.

The programme: will be 100 % Rock?

We'll be holding 2 or 3 concerts a week.
We've opted for a rather eclectic programme, with musical styles that will appeal to a wide range of people: rock, blues, DJs, and music to suit all tastes. And we'll be welcoming regional and international musicians. Plus a few One Man shows, sports matches and theme-based evening events.

What about the Hard Rock Café in Lyon and business tourism?

It is possible to privatize all or part of the 700 m² location. The two restaurants with seating for 240 people, the scenic area, the 2 bars, the sitting room, the lounge areas, the wine-tasting cellar, and the 50 m2 seminar room with its outdoor terrace are so many exceptional areas in the very centre of Lyon, for customized professional or private events that should leave a lasting impression on everyone's minds.
