I thought Hard Rock Cafe was a restaurant, how do you do shows as well?

Hard Rock Cafe Philadelphia consists of two dining rooms and bars. During live music events, the Main Cafe transforms into a music venue while the Philadelphia Room accommodates guests for regular dining with no cover charge. The Philadelphia Room features a separate bar, seating for 100+, and 3 flat screens rockin’ music videos all night long!

So, will there be people eating  dinner while the band is setting up and soundchecking?

Depending on the event, date, and time of soundcheck, there may be people in the cafe during load-in and soundcheck.
