The new Margaritaville, which is now open serving lunch and dinner, is a sister property to the popular restaurant at Universal Orlando Resort, brings a “seaside retreat” to Universal CityWalk Hollywood. Guests dine in a casual environment amid palm trees, thatched enclaves, island music and surfboard tables and enjoy hand-crafted cocktails, live music and entertainment and signature dishes such as LandShark Lager Fish & Chips, Jimmy’s Jammin’ Jambalaya, Volcano Nachos or a Cheeseburger in Paradise.
The venue’s expansive 5 O’Clock Somewhere Bar located at the center of the restaurant offers a selection of specialty drinks, including the Who’s to Blame Margarita or the 5 O’Clock Somewhere boat drink.
Here is a video preview of the new Universal Studios Hollywood Margaritaville, followed by a look inside the one in Florida.
