Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa

Summary

Spending all day at a theme park doesn’t leave most people feeling fresh. If, after a day of lines, crowds, and rides has worn you down, and an uptown spot for a nightcap is what the doctor ordered, you may want to try out Mizner’s Lounge (and a new doctor).

This swank lounge is located in the classiest of resorts, the Grand Floridian, and is found just off the lobby, behind the Grand Floridian Society Orchestra. Much like the hotel, the lounge recalls the Florida of the early 20th century. Although lovely, Mizner’s Lounge does not carry the same grand scale of the lobby, so the result simply a pleasant, if slightly boring, room.

The lounge itself is named for Addison Mizner, the developer of Boca Raton, Florida and a very popular architect in the 1920s. His mixture of Victorian, Mediterranean, and Spanish Colonial styles is still seen many places in South Florida, and the Grand Floridian was designed to mimic the architectural style he championed. While the decor of the lounge is a bit muted, the setting is quite wonderful. Sitting near the window in one of the many high-backed armchairs affords a view of the pretty, manicured, tree-lined grounds of the Grand Floridian. When the orchestra is playing, the beautiful classical music is the perfect accompaniment to a snifter of sherry and a cigar...and you can buy both at Mizner’s.

Yes, it is true, cigars are sold (at slightly...okay, heavily increased prices) at Mizner’s Lounge, although it is unclear why since they cannot be lit inside the lounge and the nearest outdoor space is nowhere near the lounge. Of course, high-end liquors such as sherry, scotch, and cognac are all available as are the general selections from the Disney standard bar menu.

Although not original, one of the fun things to do at Mizner’s is complete the trip through time by ordering one of the old-fashioned cocktails on the menu. Classic favorites such as a Manhattan (bourbon and sweet vermouth), Rusty Nail (Drambuie and scotch), and Sidecar (cognac, Cointreau, and sweet and sour) are all sold here and can really enhance the atmosphere...as long as you can handle the alcohol and the prices (about $10 each).
