Downtown Orlando Dining and Entertainment

With a sizable skyline, downtown Orlando is both a vibrant entertainment district and a collection of trendy neighborhoods. What’s more, at just 25 minutes from the heart of International Drive, it’s closer than you might think to Orlando’s theme parks and attractions!

In downtown Orlando, you can dine from an impressive array of global and regional flavors. Choose from gourmet farm-to-table goodness at Artisan’s Table and Soco Restaurant. Opt for upscale dining at The Boheme and DoveCote Restaurant. Go international at Ceviche Tapas Bar & Restaurant, Ember and Le Coq au Vin. Or just feel the need for speed at Ace Cafe Orlando. Whatever you want to taste, you’ll find it downtown.

Food isn’t the only thing sizzling in downtown Orlando, not with the district’s lineup of world-class nightlife. Dance the night away at Revolution Nightclub and Savoy Orlando, or chill in hip nightspots like One80 Skytop Lounge, Stardust Lounge and DTA (Don’t Tell Anyone). You can also party hearty with seven bars at Wall St. Plaza, enjoy a fine smoke at Corona Cigar Company and Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge, or even take in a side-splitting improv show at SAK Comedy Lab while you’re in the area.

Downtown Orlando is also your source for sports and national entertainment, courtesy of venues like the Amway Center, Exploria Stadium, Camping World Stadium and the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

Like the song says, things will be great when you’re downtown. We can’t wait to see you there!
