The Starting Gate Bar & Grille at Hilton Ocala

A Relaxing Oasis for Drinks & Dining

  • Starting Gate

Every great Hotel and event venue requires an equally great way to relax and unwind after a busy day. The Starting Gate Bar & Grille at Hilton Ocala is exactly that, and more.

Indulge in a fine glass of wine, your favorite cocktail, a well-aged scotch or a chilled martini with the area's best selections of vodkas, "small batch" bourbons and a world-class scotch selection. Or sip an after-dinner drink or specialty coffee. The Starting Gate also offers delicious wings, flatbreads, sliders and other tantalizing appetizers created by Chef Josue Torres.
