Celebrate Valentine’s Day & Carnival at the Hard Rock Cafe

There is something for the entire family this month at the Hard Rock Cafe in Florence!

Looking for something to do this weekend with the kids for Carnival? Trying to figure out where to head next week for Valentine’s Day? Here are two proposals, both being held at the Hard Rock Cafe in Florence.


Saturday, February 10 – 9:15am-11:15am

Let’s start with the breakfast brunch for the entire family this Saturday, February 10 to celebrate Carnival with “Get Your Party On“!

Starting at 9:15am on Saturday, the Carnival for Kids is a party in costume, with both a savory and sweet buffet breakfast and includes a workshop to create a mask for anyone who doesn’t yet have one! A parade will follow to show off the kids’ their new masks and costumes at 10am. All kids will receive a small gift from Dreoni, the local toy store that is one of the sponsors of the event.

Cost: Kids are €10 (free under 2 years old) and adults €16.

Brunch ends at 11:15am, and spots are limited so make sure to book your family’s spot either online, by email florence.salesmgr@hardrock.com or by phone at 055/277841.

You can check event details on the Hard Rock Cafe website.


Wednesday, February 14 – 7:00pm-11:30pm

The fun continues next week for couples – including mom & dad – with Valentine’s Day just around the corner!

Enjoy a special evening at the Hard Rock on the 14th of February with a special menu and live show. The evening’s entertainment includes a live band where guests will get a chance to book their turn to sing a serenade to their loved one!

The special menu is €40 per person, you can see the details of what’s included below (several delicious favorites from the restaurant):

Florence’s Hard Rock is a TEST KITCHEN where all of the ingredients are locally-sourced and many items on the menu have been added to reflect local Italian cuisine. The menu is no longer solely “American” in this sense. In particular, the tagliere toscano, which includes cold cuts and cheeses, are from Falorni in Greve in Chianti and Il Palagiaccio farm in Mugello. Both produce some of the best high quality ingredients Tuscany can offer and make everything at the restaurant taste delicious. Chef Vanessa Frusco personally scouted many farms across all of Italy to make sure she got the freshest and best ingredients for her kitchen – you’ll be tasting that when you go to the Hard Rock, whether for Valentine’s Day or any other day.

Enjoy the special live dance show with artists from the Greatest Showman Talent Contest sponsored by Hard Rock Cafe during your meal and make sure to add your name to the list to sing a love song to your love as part of the serenade hour :-).
