About Orlando, FL Nightlife
Even after theme parks close, Orlando keeps the action going with everything from hotel bars to swinging dance clubs. The four main areas of nighttime activity center on Downtown Disney, Disney's Pleasure Island, Universal Studios CityWalk, and downtown Orlando's Orange Avenue. Disney certainly knows how to throw a party, as visitors will agree after visiting the House of Blues, Cirque du Soleil's La Nouba, and Comedy Warehouse. Universal, too, packs frolickers into nightclubs like Bob Marley and the Latin Quarter. The Social, a live music club, and Tabu, a dance club, shake up downtown Orlando and appeal to professionals, locals, and tourists alike. Plus, downtown's SAK Comedy Club draws rave reviews for its stand-up and improv shows. Many resorts and hotels boast top-notch bars and lounges of their own and make for an ideal night, as proven by glitzy Top of the Palace Lounge on the 27th floor of the Wyndham Palace Resort and Spa. Other hip possibilities include Houston's in Winter Park and Bahama Breeze on famed International Drive.
