The Best Places to Find Cougars in Orlando
Orlando's bars are loaded with women almost all days of the week. Still, you need some experience to pick out the perfect cougar bar because, unfortunately, cougars don't hang out everywhere for different reasons - laziness, responsibility, age..etc. And that's why you need expert advice.
So, to start it off, we're going to share a few of our favorite Orlando cougar venues now, and then many more ones further down. These are a few of our absolute favorites:
Blue Martini for a cougar who’s trendy and classy
Blue Martini is a chic, upscale lounge with a welcoming atmosphere. Don’t be intimidated as it’s also notorious for being a cougar den. This location offers live music nightly, as well as 42 signature martinis and fine wines.
Go here during their happy hours (4 to 8 p.m.). The venue swarms with Orlando cougars taking advantage of the after-work discounts. You’ll find plenty of older women chatting and drinking to relax after work.
Pro-tip: There is a dress code at Blue Martini, so dress to impress. Most cougars won't think of you as a potential, long-term, partner if you're dressed like a college boy on a Tuesday morning.
Dating apps are also really good for meeting cougars in Orlando (at least a couple of them)
Yes, cougars too use online dating apps. And why not? Some of them are still steamingly hot and know that men like them. You can find cougars everywhere from Tinder to Hinge and Bumble, but not in great capacity. We found that many cougars also use these two dating apps; AFF and eHarmony.
If you're just looking for something casual or physical AFF is the best option (try it free)
Many cougars prefer to cut to the chase. They don’t want to be wined and dined, and they don’t want to date a guy for the long haul. Some cougars just want a hot night with a guy who will fulfill their fantasies. And if you think you can fulfill a cougar’s wildest fantasies, head over to AFF (with their great free trial).
Make no mistake--AFF isn’t for finding romance. It’s a site made to connect people for sex. So if you’re tired of using the same old sites where the women mistake your sexy pickup line for an invitation to a date, AFF is where you’ll find the cougar who knows what’s up. They also get plus points for cougar hunters because a huge portion of AFF’s users are over 30.
AFF has been connecting people for short-term engagements since 2006. They do their job so well that even average-looking guys end up finding their perfect cougar match.
Give AFF a try and we promise you that you’ll find all the feistiest cougars in Orlando.
If you're interested in a relationship eHarmony is the easiest way to meet cougars
All the amusement parks in Orlando might make you think that it’s a city filled with youngsters, but that’s absolutely not the case. In Orlando, you’ll find some of the hottest, most beautiful cougars in Florida. But if you haven’t encountered them in your usual night outs, it’s probably because you’re looking in the wrong spots.
Take your search for Orlando cougars online by trying out eHarmony if you actually want a relationship. eHarmony is the premier app for meeting cougars in Orlando if you want more than casual fun. You may not find the older women you’re looking for in bars and other spots because they all prefer to find men online. After all, lots of older women are busy with their careers, their families and their hobbies. Many of them don’t have time to hang around at a bar hoping to meet someone.
Ever since online dating became a thing, women have hopped on the bandwagon. But cougars are selective--they only want to use apps where they’re sure to meet someone they like. That’s why eHarmony is so successful: it pairs up hot older women with the men who want them. And that’s also what keeps eHarmony at the top spot of our list of the best apps and sites for cougars.
Create a profile on eHarmony and you’ll see all the hidden cougars of Orlando!
Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar to meet some laid-back Orlando cougars
All you need is a quick look at their Instagram to see how much of a cougar den Rocco's is. The place is a babe magnet of all ages and types. Singles, couples, cougars and students all come to Rocco's to have fun and chill with some tequilas and tacos.
There’s seating both indoors and outdoors, but we suggest you head outside for the scenic waterfront views. You’ll also find a gazebo and fire pit there, which can be a good spot to have an intimate conversation.
As the night goes on and the tequila continues to flow, a DJ plays live music. The crowd goes wild and becomes livelier. You’ll find plenty of Orlando cougars getting their jive on and dancing to the music. When they’re not, they’re probably talking and laughing with each other over pitchers of margaritas.
The patio is probably the best place to mingle, but the inside seating is intimate and cozy too. Check out Rocco’s for a great time at a fantastic cougar bar in Orlando.
Top Orlando Cougar Bars and Cougar Clubs
This guide should've been titled best cougar bars and cougar clubs in Orlando and its surroundings. Why?
Because we noticed that the city has so many cougar dens around it.
Yes, a portion of Orlando's hot ladies likes to spend their weekends and Friday nights at nearby bars and pubs, which makes sense because many are either tired, lazy or don't have much time to party because, well, they have a job and kids.
You will find hot women in venues like Vice, as in this video..
But sometimes you'll have to dive 20-30 minutes to Winter Park or Lake Mary to have fun... as in the venues below:
- Dexter's Lake Mary - 1145 Townpark Ave #1201, Lake Mary
- The Roque Pub - 3076 Curry Ford Rd
- Mathers Social Gathering - 3 Phoenix Building, 30 S Magnolia Ave
- The Monkey Bar - 26 Wall St 2nd floor

Meet Cougars in Orlando during the day
I’m all for approaching cougars during the day. The level of competition is way low and most women – cougars or not – don’t expect guys to walk up and say hi to them so you will:
- Catch her off-guard
- Surprise her with your bravery
Talking to women during the day – aka daygame – is the single most powerful form of confidence. Imagine walking to a hot cougar in a crowded bar at night with four or five muscled dudes going for her with their drinks and puffed-up shirts, who do you think would win? It still can be you but the odds aren’t much in your favor.
Now imagine approaching the same hot women, without makeup or the fancy dresses, and without the puffed chumps. It’s all about you and your communication skills. Hit some of these places and try it yourself:
- The Mall at Millenia - 4200 Conroy Rd
- Starbucks at Universal Citywalk - 6000 Universal Blvd
- Freshfields Farms - 400 Compton St
- Salsa Heat Dance Studio - 10685 E Colonial Dr
- Iron Religion Gym - 5247 International Dr
- Orlando Power Yoga - 2415 E South St
- Downtown Credo - 885 N Orange Ave
- Orlando International Outlets - 4951 International Dr
You can be an average-looking dude and still get the woman just cause you got the chance to prove yourself. And nothing gives you this chance better than walking to a woman in broad daylight and talk to her.
Take control of your emotions and go do it. It's the best gift you give yourself.
The Guide to Cougar Dating in Orlando
We told you where to meet Orlando’s hottest cougars. Now it’s time to show you where to take them and how to date them. But first, there are a few tips to keep in mind:
1. She’s probably more experienced than you (and it’s cool)
Some men, especially young guys, are insecure about being with a mature woman. Especially men in the 20-25 range. It’s weird to date someone 10 or 15 years older than you when you just got your license a few months ago.
You know she’s probably been with her fair share of men when your lay count is probably in the single digits, which creates some sort of performance anxiety in some men.
This however is cool.
Sexual inexperience isn’t a big deal if you don’t make it as one. You have to be cool because some women will test you about it. You’ll encounter a lot of “aren’t you too young for me” and “I’m almost your mom’s age.” Play it cool, say “ok” and be nonchalant about it. That’s the best way to handle such tests.
2. She’s looking for one of two things
Some cougars are in it for the ring while others are in it for the fling.
Lol, who’s the Real Slim Shady now?
If you want to be with this specific cougar then you have to meet her blueprint.
If she’s here to have fun, then masculinity, cockiness, good physique, and youth are your tools to convey this playful persona.
But if she wants a guy to build a future with, or someone to help with the kids then responsibility, resourcefulness, success, confidence and style will turn her head around.
3. Not all dating venues are created equally
Some places are for quick hookups while other venues are for creating shared experiences with your woman. Here’s how it works.
If you just want to keep it casual take her to a lounge
A lounge, a cool bar, or any cool venue at night where you can sit next to her, share a little bit about yourselves, and build both comfort and sexual tension with her.
The following are Orlando’s finest lounges for taking a cougar during the night:
- Aero Rooftop Bar & Lounge - Aero Rooftop Bar & Lounge
- The Guesthouse - 1321 N Mills Ave
- M Lounge - 2000 N Orange Ave Suite 300
- The Velvet Bar - 5800 Universal Blvd
- Bösendorfer Lounge - 325 S Orange Ave
- Rocks - 9801 International Dr
If you're more serious about dating her try a comedy club, piano bar, or fun activity
She can be conservative, shy, or just unavailable during the night. Maybe she wanna take it slow…who knows.
Either way, if she needs some time to open to you, then you can do something together that isn’t specifically romantic but still fun. Walk in the park together, go to some cool museum, watch a movie or hit a piano bar.
All still works, especially in these places:
- Improv - 9101 International Dr Suite 2310
- Lake Eola Park - 512 E Washington St
- Howl at the Moon - 8815 International Dr
- B.B. King's Blues Club - 9101 International Dr #2230
- SAK Comedy Lab - 29 S Orange Ave
- Orlando Museum of Art - 2416 N Mills Ave
- The Wheel at ICON Park - 8375 International Dr
If she's very old school you can always do a dinner date (but that isn't recommended)
If you just want to eat out, or if she’s a foodie (and you have the budget), then one of these Orlando’s upscale restaurants will do the job:
- Christner's Prime Steak & Lobster - 729 Lee Rd
- The Capital Grille - 4200 Conroy Rd A146
- Kadence - 1809 Winter Park Rd
- The Palm - 5800 Universal Blvd
- Jack's Place - 9700 International Dr
- The Boheme - 325 S Orange Ave
