The owners of the long-running, popular Pirate’s Dinner Adventure are branching out to bring Orlando what they feel has been lacking, an attraction that isn’t focused on the kids. Construction has started on a new 240-seat theater for Treasure Tavern, a dining experience for adults.
When it opens in late June, the show will feature comedians, acrobats and dancers themed to a Caribbean outpost for rum and good times. Although only adults 18 and up will be admitted, the show will feature mostly PG-13 entertainment. The experience is described as Disney’s Adventurers Club meets Rosie O’Gradys.
Gretta, the tavern’s outlandish bar maven, will escort guests through a two-hour show filled with excitement, entertainment, rum and a three-course dinner. Through the night, guests are treated to acrobats, singers, dancers and comedians. The entertainers will rotate based on seasonal availability of acts.
“There is little in Orlando that offers adult travelers and locals an opportunity to escape the ordinary and go on a dining adventure that’s not focused on entertaining the children,” said Imre Baross, vice president & executive director of entertainment, for Treasure Tavern. “When guests enter our facility, they enter a time gone by, when sailors and travelers would spend hours in exotic ports-of-call.”
The theater will be located next to the current Pirate’s Dinner Adventure off International Drive and will take up a portion of Pirate’s pre-show area. But Treasure Tavern will have its own separate entrance and exit.
Shows will run five nights a week, with two shows on Friday and Saturday. Admission will be $49.95 which includes a three-course dinner, featuring prime rib. Admission is available to the show without dinner for $24.95. Ala cart appetizers will be available as well. Visit treasuretavern.com for more information.
