    Nightclubs and Bars: Beware of the hooligans!

    by Marinel Written Jan 21, 2005

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Down Town is a young city and as a young city is filled with really young people (teens), so finding havoc on the weekends is really easy. well that is until 2:00 am, that is when bars start to do their last call for alcohol and an hour later down town is dead.
    Note: This city has an enormous police force so behaving is a must, they are not lenient!

    Dress Code: Anything goes but beware of the hoochie look(hardly any cloth with a twist of ghetto), it is everywhere no matter how cold it gets.

    One Eye'd Jacks: as the night goes on...

    by shohman Written Nov 2, 2003

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    connected to the Wall St Cantina and the Loaded Hog, we generaly end up at One Eye'd Jacks after our buzz has become a full fledged drunken binge. (as I get older, this happens less frequently) I don't have many stories to share, but something tells me I must have had alot of fun here.

    Wall Street Cantina: Downtown

    by shohman Updated Feb 12, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    on Orange Ave, this is a great after work crowd, and dies down about 8-10 pm, then packs them in again for the rest of the nigh. very open, so you can people watch not only inside but people on the street for a night on the town.

    Dress Code: come as you are.

    Scruffy Murphy's: Scruffy's

    by shohman Updated Sep 10, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Scruffy's is a good Irish pub with live music and a good mixed crowd. No frills, but always enjoyable.
    NOTE: Scruffy's has sadly closed to make room for a new tenant. Rumor has it they will reopen on Pine St shortly. Shohman works on Pine St. Shohman hopes this rumor is true.
    UPDATE Summer, 2008. Scruffy's has reopened in College Park, one of the nicer areas of Orlando. I've heard good reviews from people I trust, but I myself haven't been by...yet.

    Nightclubs and Bars: bosendorfer lounge

    by doug48 Updated Nov 29, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the bosendorfer lounge located in the grand bohemian hotel is a very nice piano bar in downtown orlando. it caters to more of an upscale older crowd than most of the bars in the downtown orlando area. a great place to visit for more quiet music and great cocktails.

    Lava Lounge: Chill and catch up!

    by Gwynneth Updated Apr 26, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lava is a place with a couple of sections to it... the main bar... the lounge and the beer garden (or verandah as they referred to it). The decor is funky however the red room is my favourite with plush lounges and a cozy atmosphere this was the area we spent most of our time.

    Lava really is one of the nicest gay places I visited with my cousins friends - Steve and Andy - who really went the extra mile in showing me around.

    Dress Code: Smart casual... fabulous is always best!

    The Social has been the spot to watch new up and coming bands in all sorts of genre. It is a small venue and it offers a full liquor bar.if you want to hang out with the locals and catch fresh new local and international bands, this is the place to go.

    Dress Code: The social has no dress code but you may want to check who is playing the night you may want to visit, so you can fit in and not stick out like a soar thumb!

    by Christoban Written May 20, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If your in Orlando and want to party or go out for drinks one of the best places to go is Downtown Orlando. Downtown Orlando is situated around the street Orange Avenue where many bars and clubs are located. Just park your car and most places are all w/n walking distance. There def is somthing for everyone here. In Orlando however clubs stop serving alcohol at 2am and close around 3am.

    Parliament House!!: The nightlife can be a Drag!!

    by Gwynneth Updated Apr 12, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I walked into this place with my cousin and his partner and I must admit I was a little hesitant knowing I was most likely going to be in the minority as I am straight and everyone around wouldn't be.

    It took me about 2.5 seconds with this thought in mind... after that I didn't consider it again. Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. The first bar we went to was a piano bar with everyone singing around the piano just like you would at home. The barman was friendly and oh so keen to over fill the glasses with liquor...

    The second section we went to was the showroom. The seats filled very quickly on this Friday night and before long a gorgeous and funny drag Queen appeared called Darcel she asked where we were all from and my cousin called out 'Australia'! Before I knew it I was on stage and hamming it up with her. She wasn't rude but certainly was in control of the night.

    After the introduction, the other Queens came out and made fun of a lot of music and had us all screaming for more. Darcel came out and mimmed a song also... because she had made a fuss of me in the intro I went up and tipped her (custom at these events) she recognised me and pulled me up on stage once more and we finished the number together!!! I've never laughed so hard and listening to 'Carwash' will never be the same. I can guarantee that.

    Thanx for a great night Darcel, you are indeed the Diva Drag Queen of them all!

    xx

    Dress Code: Fabulous darling...nothing else.

    The Edge: (CLOSED) Awesome Shows and Parties

    by cjg1 Updated Sep 5, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is where I am to tell you why you would want to go there. Well when I was back to visit in 1996 the city had closed it down. It was a country bar. So if thats your thing go for it. I remember it for the concerts and the shear madness of an all night party.

    I was able to see Pearl Jam here April 24, 1992 when face value was just $10 for one of their tickets. We ended up paying $70 for 3 in the parking lot before the show though. One weekend in November 1992 I was able to see Alice in Chains, Gruntruck, Screaming Trees (14th) and the Beastie Boys, Rollins Band and Cyprus Hill (13th) on back to back nights.
