One of my favorite–albeit infrequently visited–nighttime spots in downtown Orlando is Zinc Bar. Apparently I’ve been living under a rock, or just haven’t been paying attention to my surroundings because the venue closed — in late September according to their MySpace page.
This is what the front looks like right now:
Located on the Orange Avenue strip just a block away from the ever-changing Church Street, Zinc Bar always played pretty decent music, was never overly crowded (i.e., still had enough room to walk around without bumping-up next to every stranger in the place), and had a great ambience (something not too many Orlando nightclubs or bars can say).
Bye, bye, Zinc Bar.
Zinc Bar was located at:
13 South Orange Avevenu
Orlando, FL 32801
If anyone has any news about what might be going in the space where Zinc Bar was located, please let us hear from you.
