From rock ‘n roll and country to comedians and dancers, Orlando's after-hours entertainment scene features a variety of live performances and everlasting memories.
Once the sun goes down, Orlando's after-hours experiences begin to heat up - especially when it comes to live entertainment. In the heart of International Drive in an industrial dive bar is DRIP, an explosion of color and movement, backed by a live rock band. Known for its highly visual innovative and messy performance, DRIP creates a sensory environment with colored sand, raining paint, and flying water - not to mention beer available in a rainbow of orange, yellow, red and blue. Just a few steps away at Pointe Orlando is The Orlando Improv Comedy Club & Dinner Theatre, the career launching pad for dozens of familiar faces of TV and film and a great place to share some laughs.
Another great location to see top-touring stand-up comics, as well as nationally known and up-and-coming music acts, is Hard Rock LIVE Orlando at Universal CityWalk. Featuring the latest in sound and lighting technology, Orlando's "Coliseum of Rock" seats up to 3,000 and features a full bar and concession area. Within the Downtown Disney entertainment complex are another two great venues for live entertainment - the House of Blues Orlando, featuring live music and dining, and La Nouba by Cirque du Soleil, an extraordinary avant-garde spectacle with more than 65 artists performing improbable feats of incredible strength and breathtaking beauty.
