Party With A Rock Star Velvet Sessions Orlando

All year round, Hard Rock helps you party like a rock star. But once a month, Hard Rock Orlando Velvet Sessions offers you the chance to party with a rock star. Velvet Sessions is Orlando’s only rock’n’roll cocktail party, and one all-inclusive ticket gives you a selection of complimentary themed cocktails, tapas, and access to an exclusive rock show with a world-renowned musician. Hosted on the last Thursday of the month, each session showcases a different theme and legendary performers like Joan Jett, The Go-Go’s, or Foreigner.
