After hanging out at theme parks in the day, choose to wind down or party on with these list of spots to check out the bars. Read on to find out about the top things to do in Orlando at night.
Does everyone in your crew have different tastes in music and atmosphere? Are you looking for the perfect place for you and your friends to party? Can’t stay at just one club? If you have ants in your pants when it comes to clubbing, Orlando has five hot spots where you can club hop without the hassle of having to take a car or walk a long distance. If this piques your interest, take a gander of this list of the 5 best places to bar hop in the city of magic:
1. Disney Springs
Disney Springs is home to Planet Hollywood and Cirque Du Soleil as well as many other attractions geared towards the little people in your life. But there is also a section of Disney Springs, hidden way in the back, that is a hub of adult entertainment hot spots that feature live entertainment and DJ’s. This section of the Springs used to be called Pleasure Island and it has been remodeled to house pubs and clubs. These various venues work as restaurants by day but as night falls these they become restobars.
One of the more famous spots in Disney Springs is the House of Blues. Not just a venue for blues music, this entertainment hot spot often features big-name artists from all across the US, in genres from rock to metal and everything in between. Check out their vast menu of southern favorites including shrimp and grits or St. Louis ribs.
Address: Walt Disney World Resort, 1490 Buena Vista Dr, Orlando, FL 32830

2. Universal's CityWalk
Aside from its daytime attractions, Universal features a nightlife you have to experience at least once in your lifetime. CityWalk is located in Universal Studios and features bars like Bob Marley, Margaritaville and the Hard Rock Cafe. Although many of the clubs in CityWalk double as restaurants, at night they come to life with live bands and DJ’s. Once you are done adventuring through Islands of Adventure and exploring Universal Studios, wind down and have a drink in one of the bars located within CityWalk. Each venue caters to a different culture and scene, so there is something for everyone.

Orlando is a hot spot for many tourist attractions, especially for children. They have big celebrations like Mardi Gras at Universal Studios but if you aren’t planning on coming during this exact time, you will miss out on the fun. A lot of families choose to go to Disney Springs and CityWalk because it is in close proximity to their accommodation but adults who are looking for a night out might not be aware of all there is to see and do. Others, because of the recent nightclub tragedy, might be scared to check out the various nightclubs that Orlando has to offer. But, despite this one tragic event, Orlando is a safe and welcoming city and the people of Orlando are keeping the party going. Bar hopping is a great way to check out a bunch of venues without having to travel far to get from one to another. If you are looking to venture into the downtown area of Orlando and take advantage of all the adjoining clubbing areas, you will not regret it!
