What is The Thirsty Fish?

The Thirsty Fish is a casual waterfront bar located on the Harbor Piazza at Loews Portofino Bay Hotel. Here, you’ll find a variety of drinks, including champagne, beer, and cocktails, along with small bites, including caprese salad or a cheese plate. Indoor and outdoor seating is available — although we recommend the latter for a lovely view of the harbor, especially at sunset. Be sure to stop by on a Friday or Saturday evening to enjoy live music under the stars.

Where is The Thirsty Fish located?

At Loews Portofino Bay Hotel, one of Universal Orlando Resort’s hotels.
