Ivanhoe Village 

Cultural oasis

Ivanhoe Village has grown exponentially in the past few years, from the sleepy street of antiques shops it once was to a vibrant arts and entertainment district. Much of Virginia Drive anchors one end (including Blue Starr’s new performance space, the Venue, right across from the always-popular Hideaway Bar), and the cultural hub of Loch Haven Park is at the other (where you’ll find Orlando Museum of Art, Lowndes Shakespeare Center and the Orlando Science Center). Recently, Ivanhoe’s Alden Road warehouse district, a block up from the main Orange Avenue stretch, has exploded with new bars, art studios and small business as well. It’s an organic version of the walkable urban zone downtown aspires to be.
