Orlando Bachelor Party

It is always a great feeling being the best man, but do not get too wrapped up in the glory! Along with the duties expected of you at the ceremony itself, it is crucial the groom gets the bachelor party he is dreaming of—and your best bet for an unforgettable night is at Howl at the Moon in Orlando. With top drinks for toasting the groom and the best live band in “The Theme Park Capital of the World”, this is the bachelor party he deserves!

Welcome to the show, and Howl at the Moon has plenty of ways to make it all about the groom! Both our Ultimate Bachelor Party Package and individual Jump the Line will make sure your crew has a great night. Our wonderful servers will get the party started immediately with a Jello Shot on us and a stage call down to rock out with our band.

An individual Jump the Line package also includes a complimentary drink from our cocktail menu or beer list, while opting for the Ultimate Bachelor Party Package gets 4 members of your crew in with guaranteed seating and even a $40 Howl at the Moon gift card so the groom can steer the night in any direction—maybe even towards a signature 86 oz. bucket!

Orlando Bachelor Party

You have your drinks settled and even made an entrance fit for a parade, but this night is not even close to being over! The most important part to keeping the bachelor party moving and the groom full of energy is Howl at the Moon’s live band. Our players love a chance to celebrate and will be calling your groom-to-be down to the stage for the most electric part of his night—a chance to rock with them to his favorite song (we can even do customized songs for your party)! They can play nearly every genre and know hundreds of hits, so picking just the right one to bring his night to the next level will never be a problem.

We will do everything we can to make this bachelor party for the groom as unforgettable as it can be, but it’s up to you to seal the deal. We want to see the entire party howling, just as long as at Howl at the Moon, the groom’s voice is the loudest!

We also love throwing bachelorette parties, birthday parties, holiday parties, corporate events, happy hour parties and more. Book your party today by calling us at 407-354-5999 or by emailing us at orlando@howlatthemoon.com!

Guide to Choosing an Event Venue

Some events are put together haphazardly and sloppily, often focusing too much about what it is you’re trying to do than how much your guests will enjoy it. Whether it’s a celebration like a birthday party or bachelorette party or a professional setting like a business networking event, the setting you are in is the first chance you will have to introduce your guests to your event and set the tone for the evening. This guide will help you make the right decision when it comes to booking space for a special night!

Event Venue Ideas

Room Size
The most important thing to consider is how many people will be attending your event. You do not want to end up wasting a rental on a large hall for a party of six, and alternatively having too many guests in too cramped of a space is even worse! Howl at the Moon’s locations, however, have the right fit for your party. We have private and semi-private booking options available for any event, often with groups as large as 200! Howl’s party space differs in size by location, but table reservations, VIP sections and even our entire venue can be set up to you and your guests’ exact needs!

Entertainment
You don’t want to be the kind of host running around and making sure that every person is enjoying the night. It’s stressful on you, and nobody likes feeling forced into awkward social situations. Instead, why not leave it to the professionals to keep your guests entertained? Bringing in speakers, dancers or musicians adds excitement and anticipation to any event. Even better, Howl at the Moon’s live band is the top in class for entertaining your guests! From background music to a genre-bending, instrument-swapping performance, Howl’s band will play to the exact mood of the evening and have hundreds of hit songs in their setlist.

Customization
Some party halls and event spaces can just be a little too bland for your event. Streamers, balloons can help, but plain white walls and panelling do not make for a most-welcoming aesthetic. A good idea is to choose a venue that has hosted something similar to your event in the past and can set up their space to your needs. All of Howl at the Moon’s locations let you deck out the venue your way, including custom piano banners, photo booths, cocktail stations, catering options and more. We are pros at hosting events of any type and promise to make your night unforgettable for all of your guests.

Drinks
To put a bow on your evening, the last thing you need are drinks! It is not just about putting out the most popular types of liquor and mixers, either. People want to have fun and be excited! Nothing lights up an event like picture-worthy and customized cocktails, shots and fishbowls. Howl at the Moon loves to creating the perfect buzz for your party with specialty named drinks, cocktail stations and drink packages including unlimited beer, liquor and more (ask us about our wine options). Plus, our 86 oz. signature buckets are your best bet for bringing your guests closer together!

Service
The final and most important thing to be on the lookout for when searching for an event venue is the type of service you are getting. It is crucial to know and relay what you and your party’s exact needs are so the venue can determine if they can provide accordingly. The worst kind of situation is being stuck in a venue that would be otherwise perfect, and having to deal with understaffed, rude or bland service. Luckily, Howl at the Moon’s servers are out of this world and are the true stars of our show. More than anything, they want to see you up and moving, enjoying your event to its full potential! You may see them up on stage or dancing in the crowd, but if you need someone to howl with, they’ll be right there singing along with you.

Howl at the Moon is the most exciting place to host your next event, whether it be a birthday bash, bachelor party, bachelorette party, or a corporate outing or meet-up—Howl can handle it all! Book your reservation today!

Top 80’s Songs

New wave, glitter, hair metal bands, leg warmers, rap, DeLoreans, electro-pop—the 1980’s had it all! Howl is celebrating the flashiest decade on September 3rd with 80’s Night, featuring 86 oz. Brass Monkey buckets, drink specials, giveaways and more (varies by location)!  Plus, you can enter to win your very own 80’s Night Happy Hour Party. To get you and your song requests ready for the weekend, here’s our most era-defining hits from a time that turned music on its head!

Olivia Newton-John: “Physical”
Numbers don’t lie, and with Physical’s impressive run of twenty-one straight weeks in the number one slot, Olivia Newton-John is responsible for the most popular song of the 1980’s. Physical starts off exactly as it should, full of sparkle and Newton-John’s steady vocals driving the bass line right up into an emphatic chorus that’s style would become the template for the pop songs of the decade that followed. Though not exactly the top-of-mind song for the era any longer, the majority of what came after has a lot to owe to this song’s success.

Bon Jovi:”Livin On a Prayer”
A working-class, east-coast love ballad, this reverb-drenched anthem launched Bon Jovi onto the scene where they’ve remained for over thirty years. Livin’ On A Prayer shot to number one on the charts and stayed there over four consecutive weeks, but the sound of Richie Sambora’s talk-box guitar and Jon Bon Jovi’s endless showmanship will be cemented in our ears forever. The band’s debut album, Slippery When Wet, has since been certified 12x platinum.

Michael Jackson: “Thriller”
Thriller has the ultimate build up of any pop song. It’s almost as if you can hear the excitement of the room you’re in stirring as the recording’s ambiance rises to its triumphant brass peak. Everything after that point, including all the dancing, is well documented history.

Survivor: “Eye of the Tiger”
Survivor did something that very few artists have been able to accomplish. Writing a song that ends up becoming the pump-up anthem of your era is impressive, but writing something that gets played every day over massive stadium P.A. systems for the world’s stars while also being just as meaningful to a kid with a speaker doing drills in a schoolyard? That simply hasn’t been done since.

Van Halen: “Jump”

Like Thriller, Jump’s introduction has proven unforgettable with time. The feeling that’s conveyed, however, is a little different. Jump cradles you through all of its Roth-era peaks and synth-softened valleys. It’s not quite Survivor’s exclamation of victory, but a powerful belief that anything could happen. It’s the sound of ending a clouded early eighties, and without knowing where to land, making the jump to the last half of the decade (and Sammy Hagar).

Party Venue

Whether you’re taking it back or walking through the era for the first time, 80’s Night at Howl at the Moon is the ultimate way to experience the decade! Look out for these songs and plenty more of your favorite tracks as our band rocks you back in time—we promise to look the look the part if you do too.

Beginners Guide to Planning a Bachelorette Party

Win your very bachelorette giveaway from Howl at the Moon!

So here you are, the maid of honor, spending every minute of your free time researching ideas for your Bride-to-Be BFF’s bachelorette party. It all seemed so simple until you took into account the “what-if’s” of the evening:

What if the bachelorette doesn’t like my plan?
What if everyone can’t attend?
What if the night scene is lame!?

Planning a bachelorette party is easier said than done, and in most cases when a person is assigned this task they are experiencing it for the very first time. There may be others who have been blessed with a second chance to plan a bachelorette party, or maybe even a third, but just because they’ve done this before doesn’t make it any easier. Every bachelorette is different, which means that every planning situation is different – so it all comes down to knowing what ideas the bride-to-be is open to.

To ensure that the bachelorette is comfortable with what you decide, below are a few general questions to ask before you begin planning:

Weekend Getaway or Night on the Town?

Get a general idea from the bachelorette if she would like to travel for a few days or stay local for the night. Make sure she is aware that the size of her bachelorette party will most likely decrease if this becomes a miniature vacation. If the size of her bachelorette party is not important to her, then by all means book the flight!

To Day Drink or not to Day Drink?

There are bachelorettes who begin their day with a mimosa, there are bachelorettes who choose to wait until dinner time, and there are bachelorettes who choose not to drink at all. There is no right or wrong way, as long as you do what she prefers. Always remember, this bachelorette party is about her, so put down your glass of wine if she’s bothered by it (we have faith in you).

Pre-party Events or Wait Until Dinner?

Day-time activities can include petal taverns, sightseeing, attending a sporting event, pole dance lessons or hitting up a local spa for some R&R. You can always play it safe by choosing something the bachelorette would normally do even if it wasn’t for her bachelorette party, per say. If she likes to relax by the pool, then having all her ladies relax with her will only make it the best-day-ever!

Fancy Dinner or Get Food To-go?

You’ll want to make sure the bachelorette eats, especially if alcohol is involved. So find out what her comfort food is, and go with that. If she loves pizza and pasta, go Italian! BBQ? Find a local smokehouse! If she prefers not to waste time at a sit-down dinner, then see what quick stops are in route and have her choose. If your day is full of activities and the night’s plans are just around the corner, some bachelorettes may find it more satisfying to shove their face with a foot long sub in between events. There’s nothing wrong with that- food is food and our bodies need the fuel!

Sit-down Entertainment or Dance the Night Away?

This is the tough part; the night activity is the grand finale, the completed masterpiece, the cherry on top. .. and you must have a plan. There is nothing worse than going to buy tickets at the door to a show, only to find it is sold out. Or planning to attend her favorite night club where you end up waiting in line and never getting a chance to enter. There is also the nightmare of walking into a place that’s completely empty. (If that happens, make the most of it! But if you can avoid it by planning ahead, please do). Just be sure to ask the bride what she is up for – spending the night on her feet dancing across the bar, or enjoying a night of entertainment stationary at a table.

Male Entertainment

This, ladies, is a very important topic. Having a shirtless cop show up at the hotel room because he heard “someone was being naughty” may not seem like a big deal to you, but it might ruin the entire night for the bachelorette. Be sure to ask the question if she is open to the idea of male entertainment, and do take her answer seriously without pressuring her one way or the other.

Bachelorette Party Ideas

-Just a few ideas to help you brainstorm!
-Rent a Party Bus / Limo
-Go on a Pub Crawl
-Go Camping (or should we say, “Glamping”)
-Glamour Photo Shoot
-Museum / Sight Seeing
-Scavenger Hunt
-Pole Dance Classes
-Sky Diving trip
-Paint night
-Visit a Psychic
-Take a Road Trip
-Hit up a local Festival
-Attend a Comedy Club
-Attend a Drag Show / Burlesque Show
-Go to a Concert
-Throw a Yacht Party
-Spend the day by the Pool / Beach
-Private Shopping Spree!
-Visit an Amusement Park
-Gamble at your local Casino (or in Vegas!)
-Old Fashioned Sleep-Over with Game Night, Chick Flick Movie Marathon & Makeovers!
-Karaoke
-Visit a Winery / Brewery
-Host a Lingerie Shower
-Bachelorette Party vs. Bachelor Party “Olympics”
-Have a Spa day
-Take a Dinner Cruise
-Murder Mystery Dinner
-Go Hiking / Exploring!
-Hot Air Balloon or Helicopter Ride

The options are endless and this is a night to celebrate the bride-to-be. It is important to remember that if someone in the group can’t attend or they don’t like the choice in activities, then that’s unfortunate for them. As long as the bachelorette has a good time, nothing else matters!

And last but not least- plan a visit to Howl at the Moon where the bachelorette party can sing and dance the night away to all today’s top songs (we promise to give the bachelorette the attention she deserves!). Please see our locations below:
