The Wellborn Hotel
With Lake Lucerne just a short distance away, a picturesque garden lit with hundreds of lights, and a historic setting, The Wellborn is made for a staycation. Voted “best bar patio”, enjoy hand-crafted cocktails tucked away in the heart of downtown. Conversely, a date night featuring drinks at The Wellborn and dinner at one of the many nearby restaurants would be great if a stay isn't in the plans.

Aloft Orlando Downtown
In the heart of Downtown Orlando you'll find the stylish Aloft, a perfect place to stop for drinks before catching a show at Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.
Happy hour at the hotel's W XYZ Lounge is Half Off Happy Hour every day from 4pm-7pm.
Euphoria Fish House at Margaritaville
Set sail for the Tropics (or just pretend) at Euphoria Fish House. You can't beat their $5 Happy Hour deal, which includes all draft beers, plus domestic bottles or cans, well drinks and house wines. With live music Tuesday – Sundays, you and your love will no doubt experience changes in latitudes and attitudes.
Happy Hour is every Monday – Thursday, from 4 – 6pm.
