Before the martini, sophisticated imbibing was achievable only by filtering spirits through an evening gown or stirring cocktails with an ascot. Skimp on the dry-cleaning bill with today’s Groupon: for $30, you get $75 worth of martini cocktails or bottle service at Bliss Orlando.
Bliss Orlando nourishes nightlife navigators with one dozen martini varieties ($11–$14 each) at the bar and bottle service ($100+) to 20 VIP tables. VIP patrons ensconced on red velvet couches sip on bottles of bubbly Moët Nectar Imperial champagne ($140), Bombay Sapphire gin ($190), or a smorgasbord of other liquors in their exclusive second-floor hideaway. Alternatively, mixologists at the first-floor bar can swirl together Van Gogh espresso vodka, Bailey’s Irish cream, and espresso syrup to create an espresso martini ($14), whose flavor can leave taste buds buzzing loud as caffeinated bumblebees. Once patrons have slurped down sustenance, they can explore the 8,000-square-foot space, which shimmers with sheer curtains, warm accent lighting, and Italian marble, or take to the dance floor to test out their best hokey-pokey moves.
