Orlando, Florida, is the ultimate vacation spot for all ages. From theme parks to thrilling nightlife, there is something that appeals to everyone in this city.
One of my favorite things about Orlando is the food. I love exploring their rooftop restaurants and bars to try new, delicious dishes and soak in the views.
Check out my list below of the best rooftop bars in Orlando.
400 W Church St, Orlando, FL 32805
Sky Lounge Orlando is located on the roof of the Amway Center. The cocktail line-up at Sky Lounge is one of my favorites in Orlando.
My usual go-to’s are the Pomegranate Margarita, Return of the Mac cocktail, and Empress Orlando cocktail.
Sky Lounge’s VIP table and bottle service reservation option is a fun way to celebrate special occasions.
If there is an event at Amway going on, you will need a ticket to be able to access the Sky Lounge. On non-event nights, all are welcome!
Hanson’s Shoe Repair
27 E Pine St, Orlando, FL 32801
Don’t worry, Hanson’s Shoe Repair is much more exciting than it sounds. Located on the rooftop of The Hanson Building is this hidden speakeasy and cocktail bar.
The intimate setting and old-fashioned style make for a unique and exciting experience. Although the drink menu is ever-changing, their selections are always strong and delicious. If you have the opportunity, I’d recommend giving their Rolman holiday cocktail a shot.
You’ll need a password to get into this exclusive bar—you can call them, text them, or check their Twitter for the daily password.
60 N Orange Ave, Orlando, FL 32801
This upbeat rooftop lounge is located in downtown Orlando and is the place to go for a night out with friends.
Their EDM DJs, laser shoes, and gorgeous views of the city make for an unbelievable nightlife experience.
There are plenty of seating options (and plenty of room to dance) in and out of this spacious bar. Aero offers a more traditional club setting, so grab your go-to drink and dance the night away!
6725 Adventure Way, Orlando, FL 32819
Bar 17 Bistro is located in Universal Studios at the Aventura Hotel. The menu features a variety of small bites and alcoholic beverages, including beers, wines, and signature cocktails.
The views at this location are incredible—I am always so impressed by the view of the skyline from Bar 17 Bistro.
This upscale rooftop offers 360-degree views, so you can truly experience Orlando at new heights. Bar 17 Bistro’s Korean Fried Chicken Wings are a must-have.
I also can’t get enough of the fried rice. Take a seat at a table with a delicious bite to eat or a cozy lounge chair and enjoy the views.
10100 Dream Tree Blvd, Lake Buena Vista, FL 32836
Capa is a rooftop steakhouse and bar located on the 17th floor of the Four Seasons Hotel. Take a peek at Walt Disney World through one of Capa’s two luxurious outdoor terraces.
The Berenjenas Con Miel is one of my favorite dishes from Capa.. If you’re feeling extravagant, I recommend indulging in one of their steak dishes.
The Creekstone Filet is served with Piquillo Salsa and is one of the most decadent meat dishes I have ever had.
As for drinks, I prefer the Buena Vista cocktail if I am in the mood for tequila. Capa’s Sangria Roja is also delicious and available by the glass or by the pitcher.
33 W Church St 3rd Floor, Orlando, FL 32801
Orlando’s largest rooftop bar, Latitudes, is a laid-back paradise with all the beach vibes. Latitudes looks over the gorgeous downtown business district and brings a party as thrilling as the views.
The greenery and wooden floors add to the tropical feel, along with their fun bucket beverage option. I love to come here for a casual night out with friends.
Check out their weekly specials to snag some great deals. If you’re looking for a (tropical) good time for a reasonable price, Latitudes is the place to go.
333 S Garland Ave Floor 18, Orlando, FL 32801
AC Sky Bar is located on top of the AC Hotel by Marriot in downtown Orlando. Nothing beats a mimosa with a view—my favorite part about Sky Bar is their delicious brunch.
Although I usually prefer savory breakfast food, I cannot resist the Creme Brule French Toast. Another one of my favorites is their Brunch Flatbread.
If you want to check out the brunch, you can make a reservation online to avoid a wait!
Orlando is home to gorgeous views and exciting fun for the whole family. Walt Disney World is a must-see for all ages. Universal is another thrilling option. However, you can’t forget to fuel up with some food!
When I visit this sunny city, one of my favorite things is to bask in its beauty from a higher level, and any of the listed rooftop bars offer a thrilling experience in that regard and more.
