Kuro presents a luxe new-style Japanese menu in a chic and stylish setting. The wagyu beef tacos are an absolute must order from a menu that focusses on bold and complex flavors with a unique chef's spin. The imaginative cocktail list shouldn't be overlooked either, with the mezcal based ginger and soy twist MIKAN a particular favorite, worth ordering to witness the impeccable presentation of this cocktail alone.

If there's one sure thing a Hard Rock Resort stay can guarantee, it's that the entertainment options will be vast, unforgettable and always a great time for those seeking it. For a brand built on Music and Entertainment, Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino doesn't fail to deliver in spades with the in resort entertainment offerings. The Headliner has to be the 7,000 capacity Hard Rock Live Entertainment venue that has showcased concerts for incredible performers including Bruno Mars and The Rolling Stones among many more. The venue manages to be both crowd encompassing, while still feeling intimate. A very cool tidbit that the venue can boast about is that the furtherest seat in the venue is only 150 feet away from the front of the stage! Not to name drop, as that's definitely not the Rock Star life think to do - but just last week Colombian superstar Shakira hosted her album launch party at Hard Rock Live and knowing for a fact that any person in that room was never more than 150 feet away from the 'Hips Don't Lie' singer no matter where they were seated in the venue is a pretty cool humble brag!

Fear not for those not wanting the party to end, as the resort is also home to the 44,000 square-foot DAER entertainment complex which houses DAER Nightclub & Dayclub. If you're wanting to keep dancing the night away till the early hours of the morning, DAER is the spot to do it, and the establishment keeps on brand in delivering world class musical acts to take the stage with Tyga and Kaskade just two of the recent big name musical guests to perform at the hotspot. The best part of DAER'S in resort location is if your feet start to feel sore from the all night dancing, tiredness starts setting in and you're ready to call it a night, its just a short stroll through the casino floor and up an elevator, and you're back in the comfort of your hotel bed ready to get a good nights rest, before doing it all over again the next day.

The accessibility and convenience of having all this under the one roof at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood is truly unmatched, with the glow of the lit up frets of the guitar strings on the iconic Guitar Hotel structure lighting up the South Florida skyline, acting as a North star to lead one to a vacation experience they're never going to forget.

For a hotel brand that's centered on entertainment and specifically music as Hard Rock International is, it feels only fitting to end on a music lyric that sums up the experience one will likely have with a stay at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood , or any Hard Rock Hotel in their folio for that matter. As Jay-Z raps in his 'Oliver' inspired hit track Hard Knock Life, '♬ It's the hard knock life for us'♬' , while that aforementioned 'hard knock life' might not be entirely true in Jay-Z's case, after a vacation at Hard Rock, you'll likely be feeling '♬'It's The Hard-Rock Life for us'.♬'.
