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.
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.
Dress Code: Come as you are
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'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.
Dress Code: casual
1st and 3rd Mondays of the Month, at Glaze Under Fire (a Premiere Ceramics Painting Place) is Diva Nite. This means Discount Glazing for Ladies and a Drag Queen is present to add a certain "je ne sais pas" -- But it's a HOOT!
Dress Code: Just bring your Tiara... or they will lend you one!!
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 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!
Still getting over my night at Pulse!
Where do I start!
They have three sections. The Jewel Box, Ultra Lounge and Adonis... phew... is it hot in here? oops make that FOUR sections... the Adonis VIP lounge... the Men of Adonis are something else!
This club caters for EVERYONE... from every walk of life... from either side of the fence.
Be prepared... to umm... pulse!
Dress Code: Dress fabulous! So many do darling!!
