Bar Reports: Graffiti Junktion, The Falcon, Dexter's of Thornton Park

EDITORS NOTE:  Nicole of the "Lafayette Girls" joins the Blog occassonally to give us her Bar Reports. This is a report from her recent visit to the Thornton Park area just east of downtown. Saturday night downtown in Thornton Park was pretty quiet.  There were people walking the streets and enjoying the outside patios, drinking with friends.  Thornton Park is dog friendly, so a lot of people that didn’t want to leave their pups at home brought them to the bar!
First stop was Graffiti Junktion for ladies night.  Graffiti Junktion is best known for their amazing burgers.   They are voted best burger in Orlando by Orlando Weekly.   Saturday night is Ladies night there, and both the inside and outside were busy.  Drink specials include 2 dollars beers and 3 dollar mixed vodka drinks.   
No live music, but the place is surrounded with TV’s.  A great place to watch Football when the season comes around. 
Beer specials!
 The second stop along our Thornton Park walk was The Falcon.  The Falcon is an art gallery/bar. The art work hanging in the gallery was inspired by the movie “Alien.”  There is a DJ set up behind the bar playing house music.   Besides myself and my friend, only two other people were in the bar.


Dexter’s of Thornton Park was our next stop. It was nice and quiet with ½ off drink specials. This place is great to start the night out.  Drink specials start at 10pm, a nice stop before continuing on downtown.   Tuesday nights are $1 burger nights.  A nice and cheap date night!  THANKS NICOLE!!
