Cooking Up Experiences in the Music Lab

Cooking Up Experiences in the Music Lab


For music fans, Hard Rock Hotels are it.

This is the place where they can surround themselves with memorabilia, music and A-list everything. Forget pillow menus; these resorts are for those who can’t wait to get their hands on the Fender electric guitar menu (but yes, there is also a pillow menu). And at Hard Rock Hotel Cancun and Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya you can go a step further with the Music Lab.

This new and unique activity is for those who have never picked up a guitar but always wanted to live out rock star fantasy on stage. At the Music Lab, you’re literally in the band. Jam Band is a three-hour experience where a dedicated Rock Star Counselor guides you and up to six other guests through lessons, rehearsal and sound check, right up to a live performance. If you’re more interested in dropping some beats, there’s Spin Session, where you can learn to mix like a nightclub DJ, then spin dance tracks live on stage for your fellow guests.

And when you're done on stage, chill out at the chic bars

For those more interested in the glamour than the music, there’s Rocktube, which lets you star in your own music video. You pick the song; your Hard Rock crew will edit it while you prepare to walk the red carpet for the video’s debut that evening at the resort—and on social media, where you can share it as an awesome “wish you were here” to everyone back home.

For more experienced musicians, Hard Rock Cancun also offers Studio Time, where you can record yourself playing with the band on classic tunes. You’ll get a remastered version of the song to share, to prove you can play along with some of the most famous bands in the world.

The best part is that all of these opportunities are included as part of your all inclusive stay (though there is a cancellation fee for no-shows), and all guests ages 12 and over are welcome to play. Are you ready to rock?
