Orlando has an ever expanding bar scene. We welcomed The Woods over the New Year, the Hammered Lamb came to my side of town along with the new Matador and my sports fans can’t wait for Ferg’s on Church. All great spots in their own right but it takes something special to stand the test of time. That’s why I’m glad one of my favorite bars is now open here in town. I’ve followed the bar and it patrons since Junior High and I was so glad to finally visit Moe’s Tavern in the new Duff Gardens at Universal Studios.
Grab a seat at the bar next to Barney and order yourself a Duff beer. For now Moe’s carries three of your favorites: Duff, Duff Lite and Duff Dry. For the beer snobs out there, fear not. Universal Studios has once again tapped our very own Florida Beer Company as the brewer of choice. Some of you might remember them from The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, they also produce Hog’s Head Brew.
As for the ambiance, it’s straight from the Simpson’s. The bar comes complete with Pool tables that double as “table tables”, the “Love Tester” game and all of the little touches that you would expect from Universal. As you could guess I’m a fan.
If you haven’t been to Universal lately this could be your excuse (along with a Transformers ride that has the bugs worked out. I think.) As always, if you have guest passes I’m your girl. Drinks are on me.
