Very good place to see a band you like it is so small you feel like you're getting a private show. Drinks aren't badly priced and staff was ok.

Attended venue for first time to see Delta Rae. Other than an annoying loud, drunk guy, it was a great little place for a concert, as there wasn't a bad "seat" in the club.

I was at the social for 3 nights for the band alkaline trio in May of 2015 for the first time. I did not realize how small it was until I got in their, but it provided an intimate setting. The shows I went to were all sold out and it was packed and we were towards the back, but... More

Drove up from South FL for a show with three bands: Fidlar, Metz and Dry Spell with my wife and 3 teens. Great venue for music shows - small, excellent acoustics, not too big, good sightlines to stage, great staff, excellent (friendly) bar service. Will make the trip up again for sure even though we wish it was closer!

This venue was a lot smaller than I expected, but was a perfect place to see a concert. It's standing only, no place to sit in front bar area. Even though it was small, I didn't feel claustrophobic or like it was overwhelmingly crowded. You are up close to the stage. Bathrooms left a lot to be desired. Overall a... More

In comparison to other bars in the downtown orlando area, this one is towards the top. Laid back and fun, usually a venue for shows, the social is pretty cool. I've had great times here and I've also left halfway through a set due to overcrowding. The place itself isn't anything major, but again when you compare it to the... More

We have now been to both The Social and The Beachum for concerts, and we all keep saying that the venues (though they differ) are so GREAT for enjoying concerts. The smaller venue, The Social, is where we enjoyed some indie alternative bands, and we felt as if we could shake their hand while we watched each band perform. Being... More

I went to see Trevor Hall play here, and after seeing his show the night before in St. Pete, well The Social is awesome. Every single spot in this place is golden to see live music. Things can get tight to get in and out of the pit area but for a little place, and a sold out show I... More

Great little place for a show. I've seen Charli XCX here twice and both shows were good. Not sure how the place is as far as a bar hangout. Beer was cold and the mixed drinks were strong. Will not hesitate to return should something I want to see come into town.

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
