Walked into this place and got to see the local live music. Wore a buttom down collared shirt during a rock band and got no hassles. My friends and I had a blast. Nice little place to hangout at.

This place is a pretty decent smaller venue. I have seen a lot of good bands there over the years (and some shitty ones too). The staff is decent. They are just dudes trying to do their job, but they don't treat you like dirt and they

Hands down the best sound system and best place to see a band in Orlando. Unless you're 5'4" (and I'm not) you get a great and intimate view and feel during each performance. A++

Pros: Drinks & Shows Galore

Cons: Trying to get up for work the next morning!

after living in Orlando since 2007, I've been to literally hundreds of shows and am convinced that the Social is the most intimate venue with the best sound around.

Pros: the talent!

Have seen a number of local bands at this location and have met great friends here. You can stand in the front, the tables or near either of the bars. Either way, it's a great hangout...don't forget the photo booth, it's a must!

The Social is arguably the most established live music club in the Orlando area, and has justifiably built a good reputation for bringing in upcoming national acts as well as showcasing the best in local talent. \r

My favorite bands play there but you have to be 18 or older to attend. It's not fair to all of my friends and i who want to attend concerts but can't because an age limit at the venue. house of blues has no age limit and it still serves

Cool bar, surprisingly spacious due to high ceailings, and I like the pit/dance floor. The music is usually alternative/indie and they have some great bands that play. Great for after-work or just hanging out all night listening to some

I have been to the social countless amount of times before i moved in the area. The shows here are almost always amazing. The only time the sound is not good is when there are few people there and it can be loud. They have good drink specials and great bartenders.

PROS: great for watching bands

I loved the opening act for George Clinton the last time he was in town and I wish that The Brown Note were opening for them this time.

The Social is located in downtown Orlando and hosts all of the top name indie and punk bands. They have a decent-sized stage with steps leading down to the main floor so that you can rock out in front of your favorite band or hang back by the bar and still be able to see well. The drinks are fairly priced and there's a bar in the back that doesn't get as busy as the front one does. The staff is really friendly as well-- once when I ordered hot water (I didn't want to drink because I had a sore throat) the bartender offered to give me something that would clear it up and poured me a shot of Wild Turkey. Bands such as The Faint, Pinback, The Dead Kennedys, and Modest Mouse have played there.

The Social is a great little lounge downtown. They always have great, unknown talent performing there. If your'e looking for great underground hip hop acts, rock bands, or whatever, then The Social is the place to be.

Pros: Cheap, Good drinks, Great performers

The Social, or sapphire as the local still call it, is a great live music venue. On the other hand, their drink prices are rather higher than other average bars. The service is average, being a regular there does have its advantages

Totally rad place to hang out. Best bands in town, best atmosphere, young people but, not like teenboppers also, definitely not a meat-market (good thing)...It' s an excellent place for socializing while viewing awsome live music,
