As a part of our Enchanted Evenings celebration at Waldorf Astoria Orlando, we are offering a Martini Madness party at Sir Harry’s.  Join us every Saturday from 8pm – 11pm (June 2011 to September 2011), for a martini infused evening where you can sample four delicious flavors on our martini buffet!

Guests can enjoy these flavorful martinis for just $20 a person.

Sir Harry’s is Orlando’s little-known secret – a quintessential big-city lounge with a built in pedigree.  Both sexy and stately, this lounge (located off the lobby of the chic Waldorf Astoria Orlando) takes you to the Big Apple and the best lounges in Manhattan.  In fact, the original Sir Harry’s (inside the famed NYC Waldorf=Astoria) is the birthplace of several classic cocktails, including the Manhattan!
