In a sequestered neighborhood just east of Thornton Park is the Milk District, a part of town known mostly for its Tasty Tuesdays food truck gathering but named for its proximity to T.G. Lee Dairy (315 N. Bumby Ave., tgleedairy.com). On this short-but-sweet strip you’ll find clever theme bars, inventive snacks, vintage clothes and darts aplenty.

At the heart of the Milk District is Sportstown Billiards (2414 E. Robinson St., 407-894-6258, facebook.com/sptstown), with requisite pool, Ping-Pong, shuffleboard and also drinking games like cornhole. Stay there or head to neighboring Bull & Bush (2408 E. Robinson St., 407-896-7546, thebullnbush.com) for a raucous game of darts. If you’re just looking for a quality beer, though, go straight to the Milk Bar (2424 E. Robinson St., 407-896-4954, themilkbarorlando.com), where those feeling peckish can enjoy food delivered from nearby Spooky’s Black Cat Café (207 N. Primrose Drive, 407-896-2377, themilkdistrictmarketplace.com), which offers a menu full of adventurous flatbreads.

Drift around the corner and head to Pom Pom’s Teahouse & Sandwicheria (67 N. Bumby Ave., 407-894-0865, pompomsteahouse.com) for enticingly conceptual sandwiches like Mama Ling Ling’s or the Fu Man Chu. While you’re there, peek into Retro Records (59 N. Bumby Ave., 407-898-2484) for music and collectibles. For even more treasures, however, Etoile Boutique (2424 E. Robinson St., 407-895-6363, etoileboutique.com) is a necessary stop for vintage clothing and unique jewelry. Perhaps the shiniest gem in this neighborhood is Drunken Monkey Coffee Bar (444 N. Bumby Ave., 407-893-4994, drunkenmonkeycoffee.com), where Mojo Jojo and Anzac converts congregate for free Wi-Fi.
