Pat O'Brien's at Universal CityWalk
Hours of Operation
Pat O’Brien’s at Universal CityWalk opened in 1999 and is an authentic reproduction of the famous New Orleans bar and restaurant. Its claims to fame are numerous and include being the original home of dueling pianos, the “flaming fountain” patio, and Hurricane specialty drink.
The menu is a who’s who of all the best Louisiana Creole dishes, such as crawfish nachos, jambalaya, crawfish étouffée, Cancun shrimp, gumbo, red beans and rice, po’boy sandwiches, beignets and more. There’s also classic favorites like wings, chicken tenders, burgers, macaroni and cheese, chicken sandwiches, strawberry Hurricane cheesecake, bread pudding and more.
Drinks at Pat O’s trace their roots back to the early 1940s, when bar owners were forced to buy large amounts of rum, which was coming to New Orleans from the Caribbean. The Specialty Drinks have since been perfected and include the world-famous Hurricane, Category 5 Margarita, Cyclone, Pat O’s Lemonade and many many more. You can also order a cocktail from the full-liquor bar, beer or wine. Happy Hour is every day from 4-7 p.m. and includes $8 Hurricanes, $3 domestic beers, $5 import beers and $5 appetizers.
The restaurant is warm and friendly, and divided into multiple rooms. First stop is the Main Bar, also known as the Locals Bar, and features TVs playing the latest game and a jukebox. Next is the Piano Bar, with the show starting daily at 5 p.m, and the dueling piano show every night. Past the carriageway entry is the Patio, with its famous flaming fountain as a centerpiece — a unique water fountain with fire emerging from the center. The Patio is where you dine, dance and enjoy your favorite Pat O’s Specialty Drink.
Pat O’s also has a gift shop that sells Mardi Gras and Irish-themed goods, clothing, accessories, drink mixes, beads and more.
Private dining is available, and staff members work with you to customize the room, menu, drinks and entertainment. For the ultimate in people watching, hold your event in the beautiful Briar Suite with a balcony overlooking CityWalk.
Parking is available in the Universal Orlando Resort garage. Regular parking is $16 and preferred is $22; valet is also available. Florida residents park free after 6 p.m. with valid I.D.
Pat O’Brien’s is located on the upper level of Universal CityWalk, next to Fat Tuesday.
