Touchtunes this ain't: DJs spin records at Proper

New "vinyl listening room" and bar Proper opens Friday (today!) in downtown Orlando, providing a haven for folks who want to listen to some records while sipping on a quality beverage.

Located at 112 S. Orange Ave,, Proper serves up craft cocktails and DJs ("selectors") spinning vinyl LPs in comfy and rather elegant surroundings. DJ/Selecting duties will be handled by a core group of spinners as well as special guests. Requests are limited, so take it easy.

The experience is intended not as a raucous nightclub, more of a laid-back listening room vibe. The owners are catering to an audience of audiophiles and cocktail connoisseurs.

Proper is the newest property from the V Group, which also runs Hanson’s Shoe Repair, Bauhaus and Sidebar. It squeaked in right before the new nightclub moratorium went into effect downtown.

Proper will be open nightly until 2 a.m. every day except for Mondays. (Garfield got it right.) Reservations for timed blocks are available online through Proper's website. Seating is limited in the space, after all.
