Friendly, clean, divey – Great wings and great prices.
The Hideaway Bar – right across from The Venue on Virginia Drive, where we happen to be performing for the Orlando Fringe. Convenience aside, for us this bar feels like a welcome respite out of the annals of youth – and yet sidesteps those aspects of dive bars that many shun. Sure, people are smoking (they even sell cigarettes) but the interior is well ventilated, and the environment, while worn and friendly, is in fact clean. They don’t even have to dim the lights to hide the dirt!
To boot, the place has an astounding wall of liquor and a great beer list – at reasonable prices! Like the UK Sam Smith, they avoid “entertainment” in favor of good old pool and conversation. Chuck in classic hits like It’s Five O’clock Somewhere and Friends in Low Places, and we’re in heaven.
