Visitors can feel like they traveled across the pond without leaving Orlando when they go to Raglan Road. It is an authentic Irish pub located in Disney Springs.

One of the standout features of Raglan Road is that it regularly features Irish entertainment. So diners can see musicians, dancers, and singers while they eat and drink. There’s a reason that the bar feels so authentic: its parts come completely from Ireland. The Irish spirit is unmistakable in the dark wood of the bar and tables and the warm, welcoming hospitality of the staff.

Señor Frog's is fun at every location. But the Orlando outpost is particularly entertaining. This is thanks to the spirited nature of the Central Florida theme park town. Señor Frog's is on International Drive, right in the heart of Orlando’s theme park and shopping mecca. The bar has a menu of Tex-Mex food for people who want to dine while they party. It also has an entire selection of margaritas for visitors who choose tequila as their go-to drink. This is a bar where people come to party, so it may be a good one to leave the kids home for. Come for a night that can extend into the wee hours of the morning, and a bar where strong drinks and dancing are the highlights.

The Hard Rock Café is a staple across America. The location in Orlando is particularly fun because it is gigantic. It is jam-packed with memorabilia, and it offers regular live music in addition to a menu of delicious bites and beverages. The food menu here has bar classics like burgers and fries. The drink menu is distinctly Caribbean leaning (fitting for the Florida location). It has drinks like a Bahama Mama, a Rum Punch, and a Passion Fruit Mai Tai.

Another one of the best bars in Orlando is in Disney Springs: The Edison. This 1920s-themed eatery and bar is a draw for diners and drinkers who want entertainment while they imbibe. The atmosphere inside the Edison is impressive and eye-catching: it is industrial gothic. This means it pairs soaring archways and dark, cavernous spaces with hard metallic accents. The Edison has a full menu of mocktails, as well as elaborate cocktails. So this is as great a spot for families and non-drinkers as it is for those who like an adult beverage.
