Orlando Nightlife

What to Do and Where to Go at Night in Orlando

Although nightlife in Orlando might not be the first thing that comes to mind when planning your vacation to ‘the theme park capital of the world’, the Downtown core, outer suburbs and tourist epicenters such as Disney and Orlando all promise an exciting mix of after dark fun.  

Orlando’s Downtown area really comes alive at night, with plenty of local-style taverns, modern bars, rooftops, and throbbing nightclubs, while bustling entertainment hubs like Wall Street Plaza and Pointe Orlando offer lively spots for bar-hopping (especially if you arrive during happy hour). For those booked into a hotel in or around the major parks, Universal’s lively CityWalk hosts plenty of bars, restaurants and live shows, while catching the Disney’s famous Wishes Nighttime firework display over Cinderella’s Castle every night is simply a must. Below is a roundup of all our favorite nightlife in Orlando, including the best bars, clubs and rooftops.
