The view of Florida wildlife from the lakeview terrace at The Lazy Gator Bar needs
no food or drinks to make it worthwhile. Over buckets of beers and colorful mixed drinks resting on tables, the setting sun casts an orange-pink glow that adds a charming touch to the airboats coming in from a tour. This glow even makes the 8- and 9-foot-long alligators—who soak in a pool at the live gator and bird exhibit adjoining Black Hammock Gift Shop—look friendly. Waiters bring out bar snacks from the restaurant, while guests to linger over drinks as bands play live music on weekends.

Berto Ortega can't even remember the first time he picked up a pencil or paintbrush. By age 8, he was already a portraitist's apprentice while his peers were still working in the medium of macaroni and glitter. When he got older, Ortega bolstered his natural talents with a formal education at the Swain School of Design and Philadelphia's Studio Incamminati. Today, he teaches oil-and-acrylic techniques to painters of all experience levels. Ortega's own portfolio features portraits and landscapes rendered in a variety of styles: impressionist-inspired lilies, shadowy charcoals, and realist portraits in glowing hues.
As Tommy, one of Howl at the Moon’s piano players, explains on the club’s website, “Every night…we try and throw a party, regardless of whether it’s a Tuesday night or a Saturday night.” The bar’s trademark dueling pianos serve as the epicenter of these nightly celebrations; patrons submit their favorite songs on slips of paper for the pianists and backing musicians to recreate. If the website’s playlist is any indication, the bands can handle popular songs from all genres and eras, from Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ on a Prayer” to Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” The performances are spirited: colorful lights splash upon a stage where servers, guests, and chairs that have somehow developed mobility all dance along to the music.
Fueling the celebration is the bar’s indulgent selection of drinks. Servers stand over patrons to plunge jello injectors into their mouths, and revelers grab colorful straws to help drain 86-ounce booze buckets filled with sangria or other fruity libations. Pomegranate liqueur and honey-infused whiskey sweeten specialty cocktails, and local beers add depth to coolers stocked with Stella Artois and Dos Equis.
