Every month, the Hard Rock Hotel at Universal Orlando features Velvet Sessions, a rockin’ cocktail party held the last Thursday of every month*. Each “session” combines creative cocktails with live music from some of the hottest rock bands. Typically, admission is $29 online, $35 at the door, $50 for VIP** and includes FREE specialty drinks, finger foods and warm-up tunes, starting at 6:30pm; Cash Bars and Band from 8:30pm and onwards.

Right now, thru February 22nd, you can save some money on this event by purchasing a season pass for $250. (Passes ARE transferrable, so that is good news.)
