I've been here quite a few times in my life. I don't remember ever being disappointed. You have a good view of the performers and if you get drinks the hour of the opening, its really cheap.

I Surprised my teen daughter (14) tonight with tickets to see Frank Iero as she loved the show here back in March. Was happily surprised with the small venue. Standing on the steps above "the pit" left us front and center of the stage with a great view to also take pictures. Unfortunately she started to not feel well (maybe... More

This is a downtown club that has live music almost, if not every night. The variety of bands that come through here are very diverse too. They have everything from local to regional to national bands that play here.

Have been to a couple of shows here and I love this little venue! You get a great up-close view of your favorite artist and not a bad view anywhere.

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
