Universal Orlando offers plenty of excitement at the parks during the day but what about at night? Whether you’re staying on-site at a Universal Hotel or not, you can still enjoy some nighttime entertainment like luaus, bowling, rock concerts and more. Here are the 5 best on-site nighttime experiences at Universal Orlando Hotels:

Galaxy Bowl at Universal’s Cabana Bay Beach Resort
The retro theme at Cabana Bay Beach Resort extends far beyond the resort’s decor and classic cars. Guests can also take their entertainment back in time and enjoy bowling in the 50’s-themed bowling alley.  Galaxy Bowl is the perfect way to extend the family fun into the night.

Velvet Sessions at Hard Rock Hotel
Enjoy a jam session at Hard Rock Hotel during the resort’s award-winning Velvet Sessions. Each month the hotel lobby is transformed into a party featuring live music from legendary acts in rock n’ roll history. Prior to the performances enjoy drinks and finger foods, all of which is included in your Velvet Sessions ticket.

Musica della Notte at Lowes Portofino Bay Hotel
If you’re looking for a little more romance in your evening check out Musica della Notte at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. Every night classically trained opera singers serenade guests at the Harbor Piazza at sunset. If you didn’t already, the Musica della Notte will make you feel like you are in the seaside village of Portofino, Italy.

Bar 17 Bistro at Universal’s Aventura Hotel
Universal’s newest hotel, Aventura Hotel offers gorgeous views from 17 stories up on the rooftop bar Bar 17 Bistro. The bar is fun any time of day but at night you can take in stunning sunsets while enjoying delicious drinks and small plates. From this high up you’ll get to see Universal’s three theme parks, which is the perfect ending to a thrilling day.

Wantilan Luau at Lowes Royal Pacific Resort
Saturday night has never been as exciting as it is at Loews Royal Pacific Resort. The hotel features hula and fire dancers, as well as an all-you-can-eat buffet, complete with pit-roasted pig and live music. You’ll forget you’re even in Orlando at this nighttime event.
