Many of the best nightclubs in Orlando are scattered around the Downtown area near Lake Eola Park, a few blocks away from the historic Church Street (which is more about the quieter bars and restaurants). In terms of what to expect, Orlando packs in a surprisingly long list of clubs; some of focus more on the whole ‘look-at-me’ VIP experience, while others put emphasis on the live music, welcoming some of the world’s biggest DJs and bands on a semi-regular basis.
Just like the rest of the country, Orlando nightclubs have welcomed the global phenomenon that is EDM with open arms, and there are plenty of venues dotted around Orange Avenue where you go for some hands-in-the-air-action almost every night of the week, with doors closing around 02:00. We’ve also included some of the city’s more diverse concert venues, as well as a couple of wildcards for the non-clubbers out there. Do note that these are 21+ only where ID is required, unless otherwise stated. Find our top 10 clubs in Orlando below!

EVE Orlando has a main club room upstairs that goes big on style, both in terms of décor and the crowd it seems to attract. The giant glass chandelier above the dance floor is the focal point, while an LED wall, TV screens, and many VIP booths add to the appeal. There’s a cool 400-sq-ft balcony overlooking the busy Orange Avenue below – one of the most popular nightlife streets in town – while an equally stylish lounge downstairs plays more laid-back house music compared to the dance anthems in the main EVE room.

Attic is one of the many top night spots located around the Church Street and Lake Eola Park area of Downtown. The large club follows the whole 3-in-1 concept of most other places nearby, with a bar area, VIP lounge and main club room. Attic welcomes local DJs and the occasional international name, and one thing you can be certain of is that it’ll be back-to-back EDM anthems all night long. There’s a definite VIP-vibe created throughout, with a young, dressed-up crowd downing bottles of Belvedere on ice, though the interior goes for the more underground, industrial look with a nice mix of exposed brick walls behind the DJ booth and a wooden slate covered dance floor.

Mango's Tropical Café Orlando
With the family and don’t want the fun to stop after the theme parks close? In terms of nightclubs, your options are inevitably limited, but one of the few places that does welcome youngsters every night is the lively Mango’s Tropical Café, just off International Drive. The Caribbean/Latin-inspired club runs live performances, like salsa dancing, elaborate stage shows and reggae and pop bands covering the classics. The main dinner show runs every night from 8pm to 11.30pm, with a minimum spend per person of $60-$75. Children 12+ must be accompanied by an adult and all minors need to leave by 10.30pm.

Vyce Lounge claims to be Orlando’s only boutique nightclub, which we can only guess refers to the fact that it’s small, sleek and a bit pricey. As soon as you’ve stepped off the street and into the club, you’re practically already on the dance floor, which doesn’t normally get jumping until well after midnight. A row of small VIP booths lines the left side, while 2 main bars make up the rest of the venue. Look out for Magic Mike – a big name in Orlando’s clubbing scene – who is the resident DJ playing every Saturday from 10pm.
- Opening Hours: Wednesday–Monday from 10pm to 2am (closed on Tuesdays)

A multi-level nightclub in Downtown Orlando, Independent Bar is one of the older places to make our list of the city’s top clubs. Split over 3 floors, there are 2 main club rooms and a more chilled-out bar. Independent Bar is quite famous for its themed ‘80s night, while other nights you can expect just as eclectic a playlist, with the DJ spinning everything from indie anthems to cheesy ‘90s tunes, top 40 hits and house. They also run 18+ nights, though you’ll still need your ID to get in.
- Opening Hours: Sunday–Thursday from 9pm to 2.30am, Friday–Saturday from 10pm to 2.30am

Proving that nightclubs in Orlando aren't just about EDM, VIP booths, and fancy cocktails, the longstanding Cowboys club near Clear Lake offers a more authentic slice of American after-dark fun. Think live country music, line dancing sessions and no less than 30 TVs so you can catch the game or latest NASCAR action. The venue looks like a bit of a sad affair from the outside, with the chunky container sat in a sorry-looking parking lot off a busy highway. Don’t let that put you off, though, as once you’re inside you’re greeted by friendly wait staff, a vibrant colour scheme and a nice mix of comfortable seating options. Those aged 18 years and over can also take part in the line dancing lessons during the week, though you will need your ID (and need to be over 21) to get served a proper drink.
- Opening Hours: Monday–Wednesday from 7am to 9pm, Thursday–Satuday from 7am to 2am (closed on Sundays)

Cuba Libre Restaurant & Rum Bar Orlando
Located at the highly-recommended Pointe Orlando (basically a purpose-built complex of bars, restaurants and shops), this themed venue goes big on the Latin vibes with classic Havana-inspired décor, a menu of Cuban comfort food and a long list of exotic cocktails. As the name suggests, they tend to be rum-based. Although more of a restaurant in the day time, arrive here after they stop serving food (at 10pm) on the weekend and you’ll find much more of a club vibe. Tables and chairs are cleared out of the way for dancing, with the house DJ spinning a lively Latin party mix until past 2am. Most bottles are under $200, and you can book a table in advance by phone.
- Opening Hours: Sunday–Thursday from 5pm to 10pm, Friday–Saturday from 5pm to 2am
- Location: Pointe Orlando, 9101 International Dr, Orlando, FL 32819, USA
