CORONAVIRUS/COVID-19: Information on safety and health protocols for Universal Orlando Resort hotels: Learn More
In the words of Bob Dylan, “The times they are a-changin’” and change is exactly what happened inside Hard Rock Hotel Orlando’s Velvet Bar. We knew we wanted to keep the Hotel California vibe in mind when designing the all-new lobby bar and outdoor patio. By incorporating rustic colors, wrought iron and detailed arches we were able to give you that bohemian, rock and roll feel.
Of course, it wouldn’t be the Hard Rock Hotel without new memorabilia for guests to fawn over - and trust us you will - with pieces from David Bowie to John Lennon to Prince. The hotel's Vibe Manager told us the one thing that makes the memorabilia inside Velvet so iconic, is that all the pieces were either stage worn or personally worn by these artists.
Not only did we update the space, but we also rolled out an all new food and drink menu. The menu features delicious hand-crafted cocktails and small plates perfect for sharing. From cheese boards to sliders to flatbreads, you’ll be coming back for an encore every night. While you can still get some of your favorite drinks that we’ve always featured, we hope you’ll take our word for it and try one of the new cocktails. Two new favorites are the Topanga Canyon and Electric Cumberpatch.
Velvet is still THE place to come for cocktails, conversation and the coolest bartenders in town. We hope to see you back soon!
