Best Places to have Birthday Parties in Orlando

Kobe Japanese Steakhouse (multiple locations)
Boasting more than 7 locations in the Greater Orlando area, it’s hard not to find a location that works for you. Invite your friends out to a fun evening featuring a Hibachi Grill performance along with a lot of Japanese food. If it’s your birthday, you’ll get a free piece of cake, free hat, and a free song. Contact them in advance and make a reservation for your party and check to see if they offer any other specials when calling. For a slightly cheaper option, try Ginza on Colonial Drive, same quality of food and experience for a couple bucks less per person.
Sak Comedy Club Orange Avenue
Sak Comedy Lab
29 S. Orange Ave Orlando, FL 32801
Sak Comedy Lab has been entertaining Orlando residents with improvisation since the late 1990’s. It’s great for birthdays because you can bring in a large party, everyone can have some drinks, some snacks, and some laughs. It’s low key, but still in the upbeat Downtown Orlando area if you and your party want to go out to eat or hit the bars before or after the performance. Reservations recommended and if you ask the staff ahead of the show, the performances many times will typically base one of their skits on the birthday person and give them a shout out.

We have a ton of bowling alleys in the area. You can bring a ton of people to celebrate with you, everyone can socialize, bring food, drink beer, and at the same time watch other friends bowl. Bowling has a way of bringing people to a more even level playing ground so it’s always a great informal birthday atmosphere. Many of the lesser known, but more established bowling alleys offer extremely cheap specials on certain nights of the week including Saturdays. Bowl America, Colonial Lanes, Aloma Bowl are all popular venues along with Firkin & Kegler, Boardwalk Bowl and ofcourse the AMF bowling centers.

Orlando Grand Prix Birthday Party Orlando
Orlando Grand Prix
9550 Parksouth Ct #400 Orlando, FL 32837
If your crowd is into speed, try the Orlando Grand Prix where you can go indoor go kart racing until your heart is content. It’s a 75,000 square foot air-conditioned facility. Race your friends and get print outs at the end of every race to check out everyone’s performance. Expect to spend about $20 to $60 per person depending on how many races you want to go.

Dave and Buster’s
8986 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819
Dave and Buster’s is actually a fun place for both kids and adults to have a birthday party. Invite everyone out, sit down for some food, even bring your own birthday cake if you want and unleash havoc and let around start gaming. There are all kinds of video games, simulation games, but even old school games such as basketball and Skee ball. It’s relatively low key and best of all, it doesn’t take whole lot of effort to organize a birthday event there. If you want a package deal, expect to spend about $22 to $25 a person. (but for a birthday, you might just have everyone pay their own way)

Taverna Opa This restaurant was practically created for group events including birthdays. There’s a lot of food, a lot of entertainment, and a lot of action. Don’t be surprised by thousands of napkins being thrown around the restaurant, along with people dancing on the tables and dancing throughout the restaurant.

Cafe Tu Tu Tango
8625 International Dr Orlando, FL 32819
Cafe Tu Tu Tango is another option for those that want to meet their friends and family out for a large and entertaining dinner party. This restaurant can accommodate both large and small parties and everyone can order all sorts of tapas ranging from salads, to flat breads, to grilled meats. The food is great and the atmosphere lets you know you’re in a trendy, artsy, truly unique spot. During your meal don’t be surprised to hear classic Spanish music in the background with dancers to follow. Parking can be a pain when it’s crowded so you might want to valet your car to avoid the hassle.


Hollerbach’s Willow Tree Cafe
205 East 1st Street Sanford, FL 32771
For a fun party atmosphere with lots of drinking and eating, try Hollerbach’s Will Tree Cafe.  They can accommodate larger parties of 10 to 20 people if asked for in advance and you can enjoy live German drinking music throughout your meal.  The beer is great and continues to flow and you have an unreal amount of options.  Located in the Downtown Sanford area, it is a great place if you want to stay in your seat and relax, but still enjoy a celebratory atmosphere with food and drinks.

Orlando Paintball World

Wekiva Island
1014 Miami Springs Drive
Longwood, FL 32779-2214
Wekiva Island is just up the stream from Wekiwa Springs, and its only a small 15 to 20 minute drive North of Orlando. Its a great place where you can get a bunch of friends, go swimming and go canoeing in fresh water springs.  There is also a bar and restaurant on location along with seating on the water with couches and cabanas where visitors can hang out and order food and drinks as well.  Its a great place for both the summer and winter months. Then again its Orlando, so even our Winter months feel like summer months to some of our friends from up North. This is a great option for those that want a more inexpensive and at the same time an outdoor activity to enjoy one of those great weather days.

Karaoke Bars
Take the whole gang out for some Karaoke.  Some of the best places include Big Daddy’s Bar off of Corrine Drive.  It’s located in the center of the city and they host Karaoke 7 nights a week after 9:30.   At Q Karaoke and Billiards you and your friends can rent your own private room for Karaoke for up to 30 people if you’re looking for a fun experience with no performing in front of strangers.  For a truly unique Karaoke experience you can try going to Rising Star at Universal which allows Karaoke singers to perform along side a live band and back up singers.  You can find more options on Unlock Orlando’s Top 10 Karaoke Bar list.

125 W Church St
Orlando, FL 32801
321- 281-8140
Totally fun atmosphere in an old school church street building located downtown.  Entrees are almost expected to be shared and variety is all over the menu.  Large parties at this restaurant are never a problem to accommodate and they even live music performing on stage different nights of the week.

All Fired Up, Inc.
229 W Fairbanks Ave
Winter Park FL 32789
While it may not be the ideal place for a lot of guys, pottery and painting pottery can be a fun activity for everyone.  It’s a social activity that allows to everyone to have fun, relax, and be social without having to go out to the bar or food scene.  All Fired Up is centrally located in town in the Winter Park area by Park Avenue off of Fairbanks.

Texas De Brazil
5259 International Drive
Orlando, FL 32819
It doesn’t have to be something that just the tourists enjoy, locals from the Orlando area use this venue to celebrate special events like birthdays all the time. Sure there are a few other Brazilian Steakhouses in town that you could go to (for example: Nelore on Park Avenue), but these guys are the most well known for it in town. To avoid paying the tourist prices, check online for discounts, specials, and coupons. Buffet pros will tell you that the key to getting your best bang for the buck is to avoid the extremely attractive salad bar and focus on eating the meat.
