Go for live tunes, blues, and barbecue
Live music venues are available on almost every scale and variety. The House of Blues at Downtown Disney and Hard Rock Live at Universal CityWalk are state-of-the-art venues whose stages showcase a constant lineup of national and international artists. These venues also host events and local concerts. B.B. King’s at Pointe Orlando on International Drive features a mix of live blues and comfort food such as Memphis-inspired barbecue. What’s more, there’s a checkered dance floor where you can really get grooving. Orlando’s local music scene has hailed some popular rock and pop bands. This may give you incentive to visit some of the local downtown venues, such as the Social, Beecham Theater, and Wall Street Plaza.

Barbecue with a Side of Blues
Go to B.B. King's Blues Club at Pointe Orlando for blues and dancing, but stay for the comfort food, such as barbecue. The atmosphere is inviting, with brightly painted wooden picnic tables, an intimate upstairs bar overlooking the stage, and a black-and-white tiled dance floor.
