What could be more romantic than a night on the town listening to live music? While much of Orlando’s attractions cater to young families, there are still plenty of opportunities to enjoy a date night in “The City Beautiful” in a few choice locations where strollers are not allowed, including several piano bars that cater to a more adult crowd.
Anyone who has experienced the original Pat O’Brien’s on New Orleans’ world-famous Bourbon Street can get a taste of NOLA at Universal CityWalk in Orlando. Pat O’Brien’s lays claim to being the original home of the dueling pianos, and yes, they also serve the syrupy sweet—and sleep inducing—Hurricane specialty drink (after all, Florida gets the occasional hurricane as well). The piano bar opens at 5:00 p.m. daily and there is dueling piano entertainment every night.
Not to be outdone by Universal CityWalk, the Disney BoardWalk has their own piano bar—Jellyrolls. This is another 21-and-older establishment with dueling pianos, where customers can hear their requests from talented musicians and dance the night away. For Valentine’s Day, birthdays, anniversaries, or any romantic outing, Jellyrolls makes an ideal date night, and Disney’s Boardwalk tends to be less crowded than Downtown Disney.
For couples or singles wanting to celebrate a bachelorette evening, Howl at the Moon on Orlando’s International Drive includes dueling pianos plus an expansive dance floor. This is where date night and a spirited night life come together while revelers party until the wee hours (which in the city of Orlando, would be 2:00 a.m.)
While I-Drive, Universal and Disney draw upon tourist crowds, those who want to have a night on the town with the locals can check out the Church Street bars and Baby Grands Dueling Piano Bar. This downtown Orlando bar not only has live music and libations, but is just a short walk from the Amway Center, which hosts Orlando Magic NBA games and Orlando’s biggest concert acts.
Orlando’s Piano bars offer the unique experience of live music in an intimate setting, whether your night on the town is couples only or a lively outing with a group of old friends. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make a night of dueling pianos one of your most cherished memories of Orlando Florida
