Downtown Update

Here's the latest club information from downtown Orlando.  Epic Nightclub has closed.  Home to quite a few big DJ acts brought in by promoters over the past six months, it just didn't draw enough people away from Orange Avenue even though it was just a block off.  It's demise is preceded by Syn Nightclub and Club 57 West.
Long time night club Antigua on Church Street was turned into Don Jefe's Tequila Parlour two years ago and then split into two with Dubliner Irish Social House opening in the western half.
Not saying that they're out of business but they were dark both nights this past weekend.  It was a shame they closed the well-themed Antigua because their Top 40 format always drew crowds.
Let's give this location yet another try!  Prior home to Blue Room, Red Velvet, Blue Room (again), Voyage, Deja Vu, Zen and most recently Liquid, someone is reopening it as Club Ice.
Lastly we were given a look into the stripped former Sound Bar which is becoming yet another hidden downtown "speakeasy". Apparently the success of Hanson's Shoe Repair and Treehouse creates the need for another one and we're told this one will be called Herman's Loan Office.  Cheers!
