Food
 
Full menu at patobriens.com. We often grab an appetizer or two while at the bar. The beignets are amazing and the crawfish nachos are definitely worthy of sitting next to a Hurricane!

Atmosphere
 
Once you step into this fine establishment, you'll no longer feel like you're at a theme park in Orlando, but on the streets of New Orleans. Off to the left you'll find the "Local's Bar", a large L shaped full-service bar and a few high-top tables and chairs. A few TVs and the easy-going vibe make this a nice place to sit and stay for a bit. You're welcome to order off the menu right at the bar as well. During the early afternoon this bar is moderately quiet with a few people catching a break from their vaca to relax and watch the game. After 9pm however, not only is there a cover charge, but the atmosphere turns toward the party side.


Across the hall from the "Local's Bar" you'll find the real entertainment - the Dueling Piano Bar. Two shiny baby grand pianos take center stage with several tables & chairs for the guests. The dark oak tables, red candles and low lighting make this a rather intimate bar. Especially between 5pm and 9pm when you will most likely find it to be a "Single" piano bar until the nightly crowds start pouring in around 8pm. Often it's just been us, the pianist and a couple other tables during these hours. Don't take this slow time the wrong way – these are some of the best times to be here. Laid back, lazy, conversation having time - plus your song request will nearly undoubtedly be played because they are basically playing to you! As the bars transform into nightclub setting, the energy of the Piano Bar shoots through the roof as "hurricane happy" revelers begin singing along. A completely different vibe from early afternoon, and a lot of fun. You can seat yourself during the slower period, and there are servers to take your drink order, or you can go to the bar in the back.


Out back behind the bars is an open-air patio for dining, along with a small bar along the back wall.  Often the bar is open at night and you can get a fun seat next to the fire water fountain. Yes. Fire water fountain. It's awesome. The seating is just for those choosing to dine for a late lunch/dinner.




Review
 
One of our top favorite bars in all of Orlando. You can't beat the entertainment with 2 very different bars each with 2 very different vibes throughout the day. Now onto the best part - the Hurricane. Yes, many have tried and many have failed to finish the potent concoction. This fantastic import from Bourbon Street took top honors for Best-bang-for-your-buck in the 2010 & 2011 Best Of The Parks awards. The sweet, fruity rum cocktail packs a mean punch, so enjoy in moderation. It's served in their signature hurricane glass which is yours to keep. They'll even box it up nicely for you when you leave. You can also order them sans signature glass, but you're not saving a penny so just do what we do and re-outfit your entire glassware collection with Pat-O's branded gear. Decided you need to take some Pat's home with you? You're in luck - they sell a variety of specialty cocktail mixes, T-shirts, glassware, and Mardi Gras beads at the gift shop out in front.
