Culture and cocktails – lots of cocktails
Published: April 12, 2013
For less heady bar fare, check out Elixir Bar Room & Hash House (9 W. Washington St., 407-985-3507, elixirorlando.net) just around the corner from the Courtesy. This lovely and cavernous tap room was carved out of the stained wood of the former Scruffy Murphy’s space.
For more active amusement, the resurgence of live music stalwart the Beacham (46 N. Orange Ave., 407-246-1419, thebeacham.com) continues to bring authentic indie and local noise to the big stage (with a smaller stage right next door at the Social). But, if you’re really going to party like a local, you’ll eventually find yourself slapping the Siouxsie floor at Independent Bar (70 N. Orange Ave., 407-839-0457, independentbar.net) as you make just enough of an ass of yourself to carry some regret with your hangover smile. Some things never change. Some things never should.
