Crowder concert at The Beacham
Oct 2021 • Friends
Seats. Disney cancelled the concert and it was moved to the Beacham. Could be a good venue if you didn't have to stand for 2 hours.

Great Venue
Nov 2018
After several years of large arena shows, I took my daughter to see Frank Iero the summer before last. She and I loved the smaller intimate environment. She fist bumped the band as they left the stage! Really terrific club.

Intimate and full of energy
May 2018 • Couples
We saw Magic Giant and this was the perfect venue and an incredible performance. It was intimate and I felt their energy at a whole new level, which is saying something. It was challenging to get from one place to another, but that was part of the fun vibe. The staff was very friendly.

Not worth it
Oct 2017 • Friends
Been Twice. Both times the sound system was alright at best. Security everywhere both times and they are always rude. When your there for a show they treat you like your an annoyance, not a paying customer. Will not return ever again, should have known it was bad news when they have a sign on the wall "Ear Plugs For Sale 2$". Dont go here for a concert.

Nice for a close up view of a band
Sep 2017 • Couples
We went here to see The Church play. It is a small venue which makes it nice to see a concert. We found a place by the bar but had to stand the entire time. The AC was not working but the drinks were cold and the band sounded great.

Rude and Ripped off
Aug 2017 • Solo
They charged a $10 cover 30 mins before closing on a slow night and didn't allow a refund once I went in and realized the place was dead. Don't be fooled by the line outside the door.

Sunday Nightmare
Jul 2017 • Friends
July 2nd, 2017 (Sunday Night) Worst security service ever.. 2 people in front of me was let in with hats and I as well had a hat (A hat that wasnt a snapback or a fitted) but was denied entrance and was told to leave and I didnt even say a word while in line. When I was told that I couldnt come in I replied about the 2 gentlemen they let in front of me in and they replied they didnt let anyone in with hats when everyone seen them and then on top of it all, girls that looked under 21 was let in as the fat security looked like a dog waiting for meat, being disrespectful to the young ladies. Never will I come back unless real security are hired and trained the proper way for these pick and choose who they let in. The funny part is they wouldnt let me in but was quick to offer the ladies I was with VIP..

Up Close & Personal
Apr 2017
First time here on April 1st, 2017 to see Whiskey Myers. I had heard it was a small venue yet was pleasantly surprised to see how small it really was. It was standing room only, yet there are no bad places to stand. If you want to see a show up close and personal, this is the place. All the staff were friendly, everyone is wanded and/or patted down which made it seem very safe inside. Sound system is one of the best of any venue I've been to. Tons of parking options nearby, also a lot of little bars and food options nearby. Will definitely return!!

Rude and disrespectful at the door
Dec 2016
Was asked to unzip my vest at the door. When I politely explained my shirt was see through underneath... the door guy said he wasn't going to"look there" he needed to see my waist. If you need to see my waist... there's no need for me to undress...I explained multiple times I was comfortable with that. He rudely and aggressively explained I could leave. In which I had no problem In doing so. I will never ever give that establishment my money nor would I recommend it to anyone else. If you expect a women to do that you should have a women at the door as well... no respect and no class. Doesn't belong on Park Ave

The Social
Aug 2016 • Family
Small bar in Downtown Orlando that holds events and small concerts. No upfront parking, you have to park in a parking garage around the corner which costs money. Went to The Social for the first time in August 2016. The Social was hosting a Jacob Whitesides concert there that I brought my daughter and four of her friends to. The inside is small but was great cause we were so close to the stage to see the performers. Place has plenty of security and they mark all under aged people so that no alcohol can be served to them if you happen to go up to the bar. Had a real good time and would return for another event in the future.
