When you’re not quite ready to pull the plug on your night out, you’ll need a go-to bar in Orlando that’s open late. Since the city recently passed an ordinance that prevents Orlando bars from serving alcohol past midnight without a special permit, it might be tricky to find a late night spot that will keep your energy going.

Luckily, a handful of bars in Orlando have been granted the special permit and will happily welcome you after midnight with open doors. Most of these bars are nestled downtown, but we’re definitely not counting out other parts of the greater Orlando area. And if you're looking to save a few dollars there are plenty of late night happy hours in Orlando.

Here are some of our favorite Orlando bars that are open late. 

Downtown Orlando Bars 

Casey’s on Central

Address: 50 E Central Blvd Suite E, Orlando, FL 32801

Hours: Monday-Saturday: 4pm-2am 

Sunday: 3pm-2am

Casey’s on Central is located in the heart of downtown and truly carries the heart of Orlando’s local community. This cozy spot has a kitschy, hometown vibe with a lively crowd to match. If you love bars with an authentic, local feel, then Casey’s right up your alley. Plus, they pride themselves on serving the strongest drinks in town that are still affordable. 

Mathers Social Gathering

Address: 3 Phoenix Building, 30 S Magnolia Ave, Orlando, FL 32801

Hours: Tuesday-Saturday: 4pm-2am

Mathers is a swanky cocktail lounge tucked away on the third floor of a historic Downtown Orlando building. From the eclectic antiques and exposed brick walls to the dapper doorman and boutique spirits, you’ll truly feel like you’re lounging in a late 1800s parlor. 

This Orlando bar is a stop worth adding to your late-night rendezvous, but keep in mind there is a dress code. No bright clubwear, flip flops, shorts, ripped jeans, graphic tees, or attire that doesn’t fit the elevated vibe.
