Essay question: Why should I drink here?  

Vanbarry's is the kind of gathering place South Orlando/Conway has needed for a long time. It doesn't cater to any one type of person – it's a low-key hang that's welcoming to all. The food is good, there's plenty of covered outdoor seating on the patio, and on weekends, the firepit is a good place to kick back with a group.
