Bringing cutting-edge music and great martinis to the downtown scene. – The Scene
Though this club can sometimes turn into a sweaty, claustrophobic mess, it's one of the most intimate and unique rooms to see great bands play. As long as the sound crew takes its time setting up, expect to hear a mix that has detail and depth. The tasteful, continually updated interior adds to the chic, yet unpretentious, atmosphere. Thirsty patrons head to the bar and order tasty martinis from the separate martini menu, which has some unexpected combinations.
This spot may have changed names a few times, but it remains Orlando's top spot for nationally touring acts with underground sounds. Depending on the night, expect to see indie-rock kids, local rock stars/DJs and middle-aged folks looking for a good martini.
Excellent for the "Un-commercial" – The Social is a great little lounge downtown. They always have great, unknown talent performing there. If your'e looking for great underground hip hop acts, rock bands, or whatever, then The Social is the place to be.
The New Scene – The Social, or sapphire as the local still call it, is a great live music venue. On the other hand, their drink prices are rather higher than other average bars. The service is average, being a regular there does have its advantages though. The new look is nice but they took away alot of the spare moving room in the back, leave you not much choice to just go outside. Of course you could always just go next door to Bar-BQ-Bar for the cheap drinks!
Coolest place in town!! – Totally rad place to hang out. Best bands in town, best atmosphere, young people but, not like teenboppers also, definitely not a meat-market (good thing)...It' s an excellent place for socializing while viewing awsome live music, excellent bar... I love this place!!!
