Beloved artsy Orlando watering hole the Peacock Room has been closed for nearly eight years — it's now the site of the Guesthouse — but it still holds pride of place in enough Orlandoans' memories that there will be a reunion to celebrate it over Memorial Day Weekend.

On Monday, May 30, WIll's Pub will be the site of Cocktail Hour's 3rd Annual Peacock Room Reunion — after a couple of years on pandemic-induced hiatus — for a lengthy happy hour of 4-9 p.m. DJ Nigel John and Her Last Boyfriend will supply the music and vibes.

The night also celebrates Peacock room luminaries and regulars no longer with us — the flyer proclaims "Let's Hear It For Our Dead Homies" — including David Rich, Jameson Beane, Jim O'Rourke, Miss Sammy and Noah Howell.

The cover charge is a very retro $5, and all proceeds from the reunion go to Noah's son, Owen Howell.
