Whether you’re planning a fun date or a major milestone celebration, Universal CityWalk offers restaurants, bars, live music, and entertainment that will electrify your night.

Late-Night Dining at CityWalk

After a day of thrills and adventure, a delicious dose of late-night dining may be in order. Let your appetite take center stage on a trip to Hard Rock Café® Orlando, the largest Hard Rock Café in the world! Sink your teeth into their Legendary® Burger, share an order of classic nachos, and when it’s time for an encore, go for one of their rockin’ desserts.

A feast for the senses awaits at the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen™, known for its fanciful steampunk style and elaborate sweets. Indulge in braised short ribs, fettuccine alfredo, classic gnocchi, and more – and be sure to save room for their delectable chocolate treats.

From vanilla chocolate cocktails to chocolate stout chicken wings to triple chocolate bread pudding for dessert, this is the place to be for any serious choco-holic! 

For international flair, try the delizioso Italian cuisine at Vivo Italian Kitchen™, where you can watch the chefs craft pizza and pasta in the expo kitchen.

Searching for something from south of the border? Head on down to Antojitos Authentic Mexican Food™ for made-from-scratch Mexican street fare that’s fun and flavorful (complete with a live Mariachi band playing on select nights).

Conclude this culinary world tour with a new spin on surf and turf at The Cowfish® Sushi Burger Bar. 

Feeling hungry again after a few hours of partying? If so, the Hot Dog Hall of Fame may hit the spot. Get your mitts on a Milwaukee bratwurst, feel the power of a New York sauerkraut dog, and taste why Chicago natives take their hot dogs so seriously.

Best of all, the unique, stadium-style seating makes it feel like you’re enjoying a night game at your favorite ballpark. 

Indulgent Desserts to Sip & Savor

Midnight donuts are on the menu at Voodoo Doughnuts. In fact, there are more than 50 different types available daily, all of which are delightfully different and delicious.

To get refreshed on hot Central Florida nights, stop by Fat Tuesday® and grab their No. 1 flavor 190 Octane or any of their other New Orleans frozen daiquiri-style cocktails.

Be sure to hop in line for a decadent milkshake from Toothsome Foundry located inside The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen™. These shakes are larger than life and topped with cupcakes, cookies, and other confections.

Time to (City) Walk and Roll: Entertainment & Shows

They don’t call this place the Epicenter of Awesome for nothing! Universal CityWalk has just about every kind of entertainment under the sun. Enjoy an ode to island life with live music at Jimmy Buffett’s® Margaritaville® (where you’ll never have to worry about finding your lost shaker of salt). Or slip on down to the Lone Palm Airport for margaritas, frozen drinks, and more under the wings of the Hemisphere Dancer – Jimmy Buffett’s iconic seaplane. 

For a live reggae band that’s sure to make you “get up, stand up” every evening, visit Bob Marley – A Tribute to Freedom℠, a venue inspired by the legendary Jamaican musician’s love of music. Rock hard at Hard Rock Live® Orlando, where some of the biggest names in music and comedy often take the stage. 

And if you want to actually be in the show, head to CityWalk’s Rising Star™ for next-level karaoke complete with a big stage, backup singers and a live band. Ready for your big break? Warm up those pipes and get ready to sing your heart out!
