While living in Orlando, I’ve had the pleasure to experience the bar scene here and the outrageously fun and interesting people in city. For anyone that isn’t familiar with Orlando, like an major city, Orlando is broken up by multiple neighborhoods. So today, we are going to explore the Downtown bars and list off our favorites to check out during a night of bar hopping in Orlando.
While visiting during the Covid-19 Pandemic, as of Nov 1,2020, Orlando is 100% capacity and nightclubs are back hope. Although, everyone should stay cautious and continue practicing social distancing!
