Movies aren’t the only places where music enhances the moment. Real life comes with a soundtrack, too, and CityWalk® can host these special moments and deliver enhancement with live performances every night. From bands that rock the house to DJs who spin the beat, CityWalk®’s got the right sound for whatever the night holds. Just pick your performers and don’t be afraid to dance.

Nightly Street Performers

Female Playing guitar and singing

Los Angeles is where performers who love to perform come. And CityWalk’s “street performers” feature some of the best singer/songwriters in town. Every night, the vibrancy of CityWalk® comes to life with talented artists, their instruments, their tunes, and their passion. All they need is an audience comprised of the shoppers, diners, and night-lifers at CityWalk®… including you.

5 Towers DJs

The 5 Towers outdoor concert stage, named for the glowing structures around it, stands by the newly renovated Universal Cinema, beneath an enormous screen, and in front of a plaza just waiting for an audience to gather. Sounds like a suitably dramatic platform for the Spin Committee, CityWalk®’s team of DJs who take turns at the turntables throughout the year and lay out high-octane tracks to get heads bopping and people moving. Any time is a good time for an impromptu dance break, so take a couple minutes and move to the music.


Margaritaville® Bands

There’s a margarita for every type of person, as we discuss in our guide to the signature drinks at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville®. And everyone loves their late-night libations served with a twist of music. The Sandbar Stage behind the 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar® hosts live bands every weekend, ready to get you raising your glass and dancing in your seats… or on the dance floor.

Dueling Pianos at Howl at the Moon

Female singing at a piano bar

If you’ve never been to a piano bar, you’re in luck: Howl at the Moon has, not one, but two pianos, so you’ll make up for lost time. Request a song you’re dying to hear from one of the two piano players who take turns tickling the ivories and playing top 40 hits. Couple that with drinks from the bar and spirited company galore, and you won’t be able to help but sing along to that special song… or the next one… or the one after that. “Howl at the moon” is more than a name… it’s an aspiration.

Dinner and a Dance

CityWalk®’s got table service restaurants for every taste… including a taste for entertainment to pair with your meal. Along with Margaritaville, Samba Brazilian Steakhouse diners can feast their eyes, too: dancers take the floor to liven up dinner time with moves that sizzle as much as the entrees do.
