Universal's Aventura Hotel, Rooftop


Even if you aren’t staying at Aventura, you’ll want to visit the hotel just to ride the dedicated elevator to the 17th floor and take in the picture-postcard panorama from the roof. But the carefully balanced craft cocktails and savory small plates of exotic flavors are what will make you want to linger at Bar 17 Bistro long past sunset.

Begin by picking one of the signature cocktails (Seth recommends the Japanese whisky-based Volcano View) or a draft craft beer. Next, order a couple of appetizers—like the Korean-style spicy fried chicken wings and international cheese plate—or a burger from the short selection of entrées.

A word of warning: Bar 17 Bistro’s glorious open-air atmosphere includes complimentary exposure to wind and rain. In case of a severe storm, the entire establishment may temporarily shut down.

Setting and Atmosphere

Located on the roof of the Aventura Hotel, Bar 17 Bistro boasts a better view than any watering hole at Walt Disney World, with 360-degree views of Universal Orlando—including Volcano Bay—and International Drive.

House Specialties

Burgers, salads, fried rice, small plates, and tapas-style appetizers.
