Pro-level sports simulators, carnival games, a DJ and a dodgeball game with zombies—fun takes center stage at Caribe Royale Orlando’s new sports and dining venue: the all-ages Stadium Club.
Stadium Club will feature pro-level sports simulators, with 12 distinct play types to choose from. Sports enthusiasts can test their skills by driving a golf ball on one of 48 virtual courses or engage in a football quarterback challenge to compare their passing accuracy to the pros. In addition to these classic sports encounters, Stadium Club also offers carnival midway games and a heart-pounding dodgeball game with a twist—facing off against zombies.
The 2-floor venue, which spans over 9,000 sq. ft., also features a 110-ft.-long, ribbon display TV allowing for 360-degree game time viewing as well as a host that will interact with fans during commercial breaks, with everything from birthday spotlights to “kiss cams.” Evenings come with a live DJ.
“We are thrilled to unveil Stadium Club, a one-of-a-kind addition to Orlando’s world-class attractions, entertainment and dining,” said Amaury Piedra, managing director at Caribe Royale Orlando, in a press release statement. “This new venue is not only ideal for hotel visitors and private event groups, but will also appeal to locals. With its versatility, Stadium Club will become the go-to destination for date nights, family outings, friendly get-togethers, and beyond.”
Of course, food is also front and center with a curated dining menu that “elevates typical sports bar fare.” Chefs Janine Booth and Jeff McInnis, both “Top Chef” alumni and the minds behind the celebrated Root & Bone concept, have crafted a menu that includes spicy shrimp tacos made with crispy malanga taco shells, a Key West pink shrimp salad and pickled Fresno chilies, soft steamed bao buns with char siu pork belly or seared tofu, or Caribe Royale’s signature candied orange & rosemary bacon. Also on the menu, guests will find fried chicken & waffles, made with lemon-dusted sweet-tea brined chicken, lil’ waffles, bourbon maple syrup and honey tabasco sauce. Desserts include the Caribe Royale Key Lime Pie Fumble and ice cream from local Orlando-favorite Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream. There’s also a selection of kids’ meals inspired by game-day favorites, including chicken tenders and cheese pizza. They can also enjoy snacks just like at a ball game, including popcorn, cotton candy and Cracker Jacks.
Complementing the dishes is a long list of signature cocktails, such as the End Zone Elixir, made with Empress 1908 gin, elderflower tonic water, lime wheel, juniper berries and a lemon twist. Zero-proof mocktails are also on the menu, such as the Rosemary Watermelonade, with watermelon juice, fresh lemon, honey and rosemary.
Available for private events, Stadium Club offers a range of multi-venue buy-out areas with ample space for gatherings of varying sizes. Among the exclusive options is the SkyBox, which features a dedicated sports simulation suite, adding a unique twist to any event.
