I've seen several shows here. It's tiny and doesn't have the best selection at the bar, but if you want to listen to music this place is awesome! The acoustics are great and there's not a bad seat/place to stand in the house; the fact that it's so small means everywhere is close to the stage. Better, sound-wise, than its... More

The Social/Beacham is one of those places you wouldn't normally go unless there is a specific reason - we went for the Orlando Weekly party and had a blast. The layout is awesome and a lot bigger than expected. To go on a random Friday or Saturday.... not so much.

Love this place! It's a great place to go for a concert. It has a great intimate setting. I've seen great bands here. Such as: Butch Walker, American Hi Fi & The Summer Obsession.

Easy to buy tickets, easy to find parking within 1-2 minutes from the venue, everyone who works here is polite and doesn't hate the bands' fans, like some other venues (*cough*ClubFireStone*cough*). Bartenders are super nice. Sound quality is always awesome. I have been here numerous times throughout the years and this place has always been great. If you like to... More

If a band you love is there then go. Which is what I did. I know now to go to another venue if the musician is at another local venue. WHY? The staff is awful & RUDE. The security guards were crude right off the bat. Then the bartenders were so rude except one guy. All the women bartenders had... More

The Social is a small and wide venue which gives everyone a chance to feel like they are up close to the artists. You can get in the pit to look up or be at eye level by the bar. The drinks are fairly priced and there's a good variety. But know what band you're going to see before you... More

Great place to watch an up-and-coming band play here before they hit it big or just an indie favorite. It's impossible to be far from the stage. Only problems have been the place is so small sometimes the bar noise is a bit much for a quieter act.

My husband and I don't live in Orlando so we had never been to this venue before -we weren't sure what to expect. One of our favorite bands (Nouvelle Vague) was performing there so we decided to purchase tickets - boy are we glad we did! This place was awesome! It is very small or shall I say cozy. No... More

Went to see Mark Kozelek last night and it was a disaster. The Social books a quiet acoustic concert on the same night as an outdoor party on the deck above the Social. The bass was so loud that you could barely hear the artist. The folks at the Social had no answer for this other than “we do not... More
