Cool art on the walls, a great selection of craft beers, spot-on curation of the Netflix queue – if your college buddy had a dozen vintage arcade games in his living room, you’d feel like you were there. The room fills up late with a young crowd ready to drop cash on the serious beer selection – the cost is balanced out by free play on almost all the games (plus there’s usually a happy-hour deal to be had). Clean, comfortable, clubhouse vibe.
Keg ’N Cork is a neighborhood bar in the best sense: a low-key place where people can have a few beers and hang out with friends. Located in the old McRaney’s Tavern space after a couple of other endeavors failed in the location (RIP, Barley’s Taphouse and Winter Park Saloon), the remodel has brightened things up, both inside and outside. The patio is inviting and the beer selection is respectably extensive. The food is OK, but don’t feel bad if the smell from 4 Rivers, located just next door, summons you for a barbecue break between beers. Parking headaches, long a problem at previous incarnations of this spot, are alleviated now that you’re allowed to park in the 4 Rivers lot.
More of a tourist experience than a straight-up bar, Minus5 is a great place to escape from the Orlando summer heat. You’ll get tons of selfies (you in a fur-trimmed parka! you in an ice cave!), plus other shots of the chiseled-from-ice wintry wonderland, to post on social media. And the shots of the liquid variety? Those come in glasses made of ice. Which you can drink while sitting on a bench made of ice. Chillax! (Sorry.)
