FAQ: A Starter Guide

Welcome to The Cloak & Blaster, a gaming pub for all fans of geek culture and craft beer! This quick-start guide contains information that every new player needs before starting their quest.

What is your age policy?

Ages 18+ only after 8 p.m. We do not police adult language from our other guests. We also do not have a kids menu, high chairs, or a changing table. This is an adult establishment; however, we have families who frequent for family board game time. All children must be supervised by a guardian at all times – no exceptions.

Where are you located?

You can find us just east of the Waterford Lakes Shopping Center in Orlando (east side of the city, near the University of Central Florida and 408 E / Colonial 50 exit.) Our address is 875 Woodbury Road, Suite 108, Orlando, Florida 32828, and we are located just south of the 408 overpass on Woodbury Road. (We are on the stretch in between Lake Underhill and Waterford Lakes Parkway!)

Can I just hang out without buying anything?

In short, not really. We know gaming takes time, but if you aren’t supporting the pub, we reserve the right to ask you to wrap up so we can make space for paying customers. This applies at all times, including themed event and trivia nights. Alternatively, you may procure space for $5 per person provided you are a part of the night’s festivities.

Please note: Our serving staff works for tips, so please tip appropriately when you visit. If you do not have enough money to pay your bill and tip your server or bartender, then we ask you to join us again at a later date. Repeat offenders could be subject to automatic gratuity.

Is smoking permitted?

No smoking of any kind is allowed. This includes pipes, e-cigs, and vaping.

Can I bring in outside food and beverages?

Outside food and beverages are not permitted. (Only birthday cakes are allowed with a receipt from a licensed bakery. However, we are not responsible for providing plates and/or cutting the cake. Please plan ahead or you may incur an additional cake cutting fee.)

Does it cost money to play games?

We do not charge a cover. However, we charge a $1.00/person usage fee for any guests playing games from our tabletop game library. This nominal fee is charged only once per visit, and is necessary to help us replace games that are stolen or damaged (which happens more than we would have hoped.) The fee also helps us provide newer, bigger titles for your enjoyment on a regular basis. We did not want to hide the cost in food and drink prices, because we believe in transparency when it comes to pricing. We really appreciate your understanding and support for maintaining our tabletop library!

Can I wear a costume? Is that weird?

Weird? No way! We encourage guests to rock costumes any time, especially for our themed events. While costumes are allowed daily, we simply cannot permit large props, helmets, or weapons of any kind without prior approval. Costumes shouldn’t show any M-rated body parts.

As the saying goes, “Don’t be a d*ck.”

We have a very strict anti-harassment policy that means everyone in our pub, from staff to guests, should be treated with respect and decency. If someone makes you feel uncomfortable, please let a member of our staff know ASAP.

How late can I order food?

Our grill shuts off one hour before we close for the evening. Appetizer service ends 30 minutes before we close.

Can I make a reservation?

Yes! We highly encourage reservations for weekends, event nights, or large parties. Option 1) Call 407-674-7435 to have your name and party added to the list to try and lessen wait times. This is not a guaranteed table time. Option 2) Make a paid reservation ($5 / person) in the form of a gift card. This holds your table for a specific time and guarantees that you will be seated as soon as you arrive. We require 24 hours advance notice for paid reservations. You can also email reservations to hello@cloakandblaster.com.

Can I rent out The Cloak & Blaster for my party?

Absolutely! We’ve hosted bachelor parties, bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, and corporate meetings. We can also accommodate larger events such as weddings, vow renewals, and more that involve renting out our establishment with full catering and event coordination. If you are interested in hosting your event with us, please email Andrea@cloakandblaster.com with your event details (date, party size, time, special requests, etc.)
