Margaritaville is more than a restaurant, itâ€™s a state of mind as the spirited new venue brings a seaside retreat to Universal CityWalk that continues to resonate as one of L.A.â€™s most influential lifestyle centers. Margaritaville is now open, serving lunch and dinner.
Margaritaville at Universal CityWalk Hollywood invites guests to escape the everyday as they dine in a casual environment amid palm trees, thatched enclaves, island music and surfboard tables and enjoy hand-crafted cocktails, live music and entertainment and signature dishes such as LandShark Lager Fish & Chips, Jimmyâ€™s Jamminâ€™ Jambalaya Â®, Volcano Nachos or a Cheeseburger in Paradise Â®.
The venueâ€™s expansive 5 Oâ€™Clock Somewhere Bar located at the center of the restaurant offers a selection of refreshing specialty drinks, including the Whoâ€™s to BlameÂ® Margarita or the 5 Oâ€™Clock Somewhere boat drink.
For over 20 years, Universal CityWalk has boosted the cityâ€™s rhythm through a foundation built on providing memorable entertainment experiences. Â With a series of dramatic enhancements currently underway from new restaurants, shopping experiences and visually-aesthetic design features to its multi-million dollar Universal Cinema renovation, the spotlight shines brightly on CityWalk as it continues to invest in an ambitious revitalization and remain best in class.
This significant undertaking coincides with Universal Studios Hollywoodâ€™s recent epic transformation in which 75 percent of the world-class theme park was completely reimagined.
Introduced in 1993, CityWalk was constructed in collaboration with visionary architect Jon Jerde as the prototypical one-stop leisure destination that redefined the mall of yesteryear as a vibrant multi-sensory outdoor complex. With grand neon signs and larger-than-life decorative sculptures complimenting the diverse offerings, this whimsical street was reflective of L.A.â€™s eclectic landscape and distinguishing characteristics.
