Universal Orlando offers 3 onsite hotels (with a 4th opening in 2014) each resort offers a little something extra each month for guests and locals alike. On the last Thursday of every month (except Nov & Dec), Hard Rock Resort offers something they call Velvet Sessions. Simply put, the hotel lobby is literally transformed into a live entertainment venue. Yes the lobby! This event has been named Orlando’s only rock and roll cocktail party.
Velvet Sessions feature a different band each month and includes complimentary cocktails (limited selection), butler-served hors d’oeuvres and warm-up music starting at 6:30 pm. At 8:30 pm, the featured band starts and a cash bar is available. Complimentary valet parking is available.
Prices: $29 online, $35 at the door, VIP $50 available online only. Prices also vary in September and October
