In June, a select group of Yelp Elites and their plus ones were able to take part in an exclusive Yelp Elite Event at Hard Rock Cafe in Seattle. Hard Rock Cafe has multiple floors with event spaces, but the Elite Event took place on their rooftop with views of Pike Place Market and the water. This was a treat for most of the guests, as this rooftop space is almost kept secret amongst tourists and locals alike.
To build around the theme of the venue overall, guests were encouraged to come dressed in their favorite band tees – and our Elites definitely delivered! The crowd was a sea of ACDC, Rolling Stones, Nirvana, and many other iconic band tees.
On top of being able to enjoy the stellar views, Hard Rock Cafe gave everybody two drink tickets to try any drink of choice from the private bar, and also supplied bites throughout the evening. The menu consisted of assorted flatbreads, a build-your-own taco bar, and buffalo fries.
“This was my second YES event and my first time at Hard Rock. I have to say, I wasn’t expecting such an immaculate rooftop view. Really great vibes all around–so much so that I forgot to take pictures!! Loved learning about what this Hard Rock location has planned and how dedicated the manager was. That’s what Yelp is all about: finding new spots and rediscovering the old!” – Yelper Steven Z.
