This August, Yelp Elites were treated to an experience fit for a rock star at Cleveland’s iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Located in Downtown Cleveland, the Rock Hall continues to inspire and engage visitors and students from around the world through its educational programming, special events, and museum exhibits.
Yelp Elites arrived ready to rock and explore the innovative updates of Rock Hall 2.0. The evening began with mingling, drinks and mouthwatering bites from the new All Access Cafe. This newly redesigned indoor cafe features a menu developed by Cleveland’s hottest chefs Rocco Whalen, Fabio Salerno, and Jonathan Sawyer. Yelp Elites were even treated to a personal visit from celebrity Chef Rocco Whalen as they sampled salad, quesadilla, grilled cheese, tater tots and more from the diverse menu.Rock Hall docents were also on-hand to provide guided tours throughout the first floor of the museum. Elites explored, played, and of jammed to music while soaking in the exciting collections and exhibitions, including Summer of Love Turns 50 and Rolling Stone: 50 Years. Elites were also invited back in the future to experience the Power of Rock, the Rock Hall’s new signature experience that seats visitors front row for incredible moments from 31 years of induction ceremonies. The new Connor Theater allows visitors to feel every beat and hear every chord with a state-of-the-art immersive experience directed by Academy Award winner Jonathan Demme and produced by BRC Imagination Arts.As Yelp Elite Stef M. wrote, “I haven’t been to the Rock Hall since I was in junior high, so this was almost a completely new experience for me. Lots of great changes have taken place over the last decade. We were especially impressed with our tour guide Bob, who rattled off some really interesting facts along the tour. He really knew his stuff, a true asset to the museum… This was a real treat!”After touring the museum, Elites gathered in the courtyard to enjoy a Summer in the City concert featuring FunkyardX and JPENNELOPE. With the backdrop of a perfect Lake Erie sunset, Elites left the evening dazzled by one of our community’s finest cultural treasures.
