So many options, so much research to do! We have spent many an afternoon enjoying a margarita from the Lone Palm playing the ring game, as well as dancing the night away at the Groove. Now I need to collect some hard facts to finish this page.

In the meantime, just remember these 3 words: Pat O'Brien's Hurricane. You're welcome.

FYI: CityWalk bars open at 4pm & close at 2am. Be sure to hit one of the new Promenade Bars by the lagoon.
You can enjoy your alcoholic beverage while stolling around CityWalk, however they will not allow you into a theme park with an alcoholic beverage purchased in CityWalk.

Antojitos

Built to resemble an old Mexican church, this tie-dyed behemoth of a building is located at the back of CityWalk in the former Latin Quarter spot, but with this brightly colored facade and the roaming mariachi band playing pop music you can't miss it. One of the best features is the VW Bus parked in front that's pouring some mean drinks.

Food 
On the first floor, "Antojitos", you'll find a trendy, street style atmosphere and food to match.
Click here to view their menu.

Upstairs, "Antojitos Up", is a more high-end dinner experience.
Click here to view their menu.

Atmosphere
If you've been to Latin Quarter before, you'll recognize the layout as the basics of the building haven't changed. However, the decor is drastically different. The first floor is meant to resemble the street carts and markets of Mexico City with an urban twist. Everywhere you look there are bright, bold colors mixed with urban modern furniture and fixtures. A few walls have been "tagged" with giant graffiti art that climbs up to the ceiling.  
 
 
 
 

The upstairs is more modern and sleek with an upscale feel.

Atmosphere 
While Emeril's restaurant is a rather upscale dining experience, the bar is much friendlier to those just stopping by inbetween park visits. There's no dress code for the bar area, so come as you are and enjoy these great happy hour offerings. The bar is off to the side of the restaurant, along a full glass window that gives a nice view of CityWalk. The bar has around 15 chairs, and there are a few tables right next to the bar by the window. It's a eclectic mix of people at the bar around this happy hour time, some are waiting for their tables for dinner and others are park-goers that just stopped in for a quick drink.

Review 
After reading about their happy hour offerings and passing by the posters out in CityWalk multiple times, we were excited to see if this happy hour would impress. And it did to the point that I don't know why we haven't been in here before!

The first drink we enjoyed is the Pineapple Upside Down Cake which is delightfully sweet, tangy and almost dessert-like thanks to the caramel vodka addition. Not your typical pineapple tropical drink, the caramel addition takes the flavor to a whole new level. A very unique, slightly savory, cocktail that deserves to be sipped and slowly enjoyed. 






The second drink we enjoyed is the Elderflower Blossom. What an interesting concoction this cocktail is! An exotic tea mixed with Elderflower vodka makes for one intensely flavored drink. Almost like drinking a heavily scented floral perfume, this cocktail is one to be savored slowly. If you're tired of the same old drinks, go give this a try.






We each got one of these beauties, a Cantaloupe Martini by checking in to Foursquare. Made with their latest vodka infusions, it is crisp, lightly sweet and very much like you stuck a straw in a melon! 

Emeril's often has their own vodka infusion in the works at any given time. They've made flavors from cantaloupe to lychee. Watch their facebook page to see what they're cooking up next. And while you're there, Emeril's usually posts specials just for their facebook friends. 











We tried the Ceviche & Tuna Tartare appetizer on a recent visit. The quality and quantity for $8 is a great deal for a high-end appetizer that was plenty for a light snack for two. They are both delicious and we look forward to grabbing this decadent treat again.

Overall, Emeril's Happy Hour offers some high-end cocktails for a great price. Just think - for the same $6 you can get a plain rum & coke at one of the other theme park bars, or you can enjoy a specialty drink here. This, my friends, is what they call a 'no-brainer'. Enjoy!
