They charged a $10 cover 30 mins before closing on a slow night and didn't allow a refund once I went in and realized the place was dead. Don't be fooled by the line outside the door.

Small bar in Downtown Orlando that holds events and small concerts. No upfront parking, you have to park in a parking garage around the corner which costs money. Went to The Social for the first time in August 2016. The Social was hosting a Jacob...More
