We saw Magic Giant and this was the perfect venue and an incredible performance. It was intimate and I felt their energy at a whole new level, which is saying something. It was challenging to get from one place to another, but that was part...More

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

This venue is perfect for small shows! It is in a cool little area of Orlando, be prepared to pay for parking, but there are plenty of garages for $5. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby. The venue is small, long bar on one wall...More

Can I wear linen in Vegas in October? And thank to everyone who post to this forum. I've been reading it religiously for weeks during work! Going to the Social House Sat night - I know a lot of you are wondering how it is, so I will be happy to report back next week.

Girls night post-dinner drinks (8 Replies)
Am planning my best friend's bachelorette party but as she's a more mild bride, I'm looking for a restaurant/bar to go for post-dinner drinks. We want good ambiance, enough space for 9 ladies to chat over drinks for a couple hours, and unique/varied cocktail menu Have read good things about Stir, The Feed Co Table & Tavern, The Social, and Matilda Midnight on Yelp...any advice about these places or other recommendations that would fit our needs Thanks in advance

Good choices except not picturing it at The Feed- not the right vibe- dinner at the public house and move to the social- or- dinner at Alleia and move to the Flying Squirrel or Stir- if we’re talking a weekend then call ahead on any of these. Have not eaten at the Westin but the upstairs bar is trendy with couches, etc and the downstairs has outdoor seating and fire pits- decent cocktail menu

Social rewards change? (2 Replies)
Did anyone notice that the Social rewards website for the CET properties "unlinked" their facebook accounts? I tried to re-link it and it wont let me. Is this just me or are they discontinuing it?

I also got an error. The usual share said connect instead. In just going to chalk it up to website issues and check back tomorrow.
