The Universal Studios Bistro With Unmissable Rooftop Views
By ELIZABETH BLASI
Universal Orlando is known for great food and beverage options across its three theme parks: Islands of Adventure, Universal Studios, and Volcano Bay. However, there is such a place on Universal Orlando’s property where you can sip on creatively crafted cocktails and nibble on innovative appetizers, all while enjoying an unmissable skyline view.
At Bar 17 Bistro, on the 17th floor at Universal Orlando's Aventura Hotel, you can soak in panoramic views of all three theme parks, the numerous resorts on the property, and the iconic CityWalk from your seat. Welcome to both hotel guests and walk-ins, what makes this spot so popular, in addition to its views, is its daily happy hour that runs from 10pm until closing.
On the menu, you can order creative cocktails, such as the Orlandos & Don'ts — made from gin, sake, lemon, cucumber, and raspberry — or the One in a Melon — crafted with vodka, St-Germain, melon, pear, and lemon. You can pair these libations with bites like Korean fried chicken wings, Mongolian beef, vegetable, pork belly bao buns, or the Bar 17 Steak.
