Best Overall Venue Improvement

Will’s Pub
1042 N. Mills Ave., 407-748-8256, willspub.org

As if being one of the city’s longest-standing prime venues weren’t enough, Will’s Pub has undergone an unprecedented blitz of improvements this year that have upped the experience of the space as both live venue and hangout. Widened doorways to the music room have increased sightlines immensely, the front room’s been converted from a space-hogging billiard zone to a social room with generous seating, the joint’s gone nonsmoking and – god save us – it’s full-ass liquor now, making that new keg-smash mural rather literal.
