Annual Manual 2013
Bars, nightclubs, live music and dancing hotspots in Orlando
Published: April 12, 2013
Little Fish Huge Pond
309 E. First St., Sanford
You never know quite what you’ll find going on at this trippy hangout: intimate soul performances, pirate parties, hookah-passing, maybe even cheese-inspired art shows or Mexican holiday movies. End your all-nighter here, and you’ll swear the whole thing was a dream the next morning.
55 N. Orange Ave.
Drunken camaraderie marks this Irish pub with one of the longest happy hours in downtown Orlando and one of the best atmospheres to boot. You don’t want to be anywhere else for St. Patrick’s Day, that’s for sure.
2810 Corrine Drive
If Orlando were famous for something other than Mickey Mouse, it’d be Redlight Redlight. With an exhausting beer list and impeccable taste, it’s tempting to take up residence on a bar stool and enjoy the much bigger space they now inhabit in Audubon Park.
Wall St. Plaza
19 N. Orange Ave.
Located at the epicenter of downtown Orlando, and always throbbing with music, booze and vitality, Wall St. Plaza and its eight venues take up an entire city block, but it’s easy to navigate, heavy on the drink specials and stocked with eye candy for all.
Wally’s Mills Avenue Liquors
1001 Mills Ave.
Wally’s is the only place in town as committed to your drinking habit as you are. It’s open at 7:30 a.m., meaning you can find a good strong drink at pretty much any hour. Plus, you will not find a better spot to marvel at Orlando’s celebrities in full drunken splendor.
World of Beer UCF
3402 Technological Ave.
Craft beer finally infiltrated the east side of town in the worthy vessel that is World of Beer. With a seemingly endless selection of beers on draft and the occasional live show, WOB offers a steady temptation to keep UCF locals drinking in the neighborhood.
