Essay question: Why should I drink here?  
Maybe you shouldn’t drink here? Just kidding. This is one of Orlando’s best-known dive bars, though they would probably dispute the use of “dive”; clearly the owners take pride in their property. It’s kind of the Milk District’s answer to Mills 50’s Wally’s, with a haze of smoke overhead, friendly regular barflies (they open at 11 a.m.!), super-strong drinks and a cash-only policy. If you’ve never been here, you gotta go – it’s a true Orlando classic.
