Bar 17 Bistro at Aventura Hotel – photos, menus, & reviews

Aventura Hotel, one of Universal’s on-site hotels

Drinks are served from 4:00 pm to 2:00 am every night, with snacks and dinner being offered from 5:00 pm to 10:00 pm.

This is the rooftop bar at Aventura – the first that Universal has ever done at any of its theme-park locations around the world.

Two-sentence insider summary
This family-friendly rooftop bar offers some of the best views to be found anywhere at (Universal) Orlando, with a menu of small plates and custom potions to back it up. These urban flavors and spectacular vistas are not to be missed, even if it’s for a brief visit after a long day at the parks (all of which you can see!).

OI fun fact
The “17” in the bar’s name comes from the fact that it sits on the 17th floor of the hotel, otherwise known as the roof.

Small plates at Bar 17 Bistro run from $7 to $18, while drinks go from $6 to $110 (for a bottle of wine).

Online reservations are not available.
