Definitely a place that downtown Orlando needed. The ambiance is superb and definitely embraces the value of human interaction. It's nice to actually be able to hear yourself and have a good conversation with someone. They have a retro candy bar, games and tons of antiques to enjoy while you're there. Great drinks and good company. One of my new favorite places and will be back again soon. If you haven't been, you need to go.
My husband and I happened to be in Orlando at the same time our friend was doing a bar craw, so we raged along. Best decision we made. The moment we walked in, a gentlemen dressed like he was from the FBI secret services greater us an amazing smile and told us how to get upstairs. We walked to the second floored and a really pretty girl opened the door as if I was about to enter to see the president. The moment she opened the door my jaw drop down.... Mind blowing moment!!!!!!! I felt as if I was part or the gangster squad, or part of the 1920s. They had jazz playing lights everywhere book shelfs and stunning decorations. Never in my life have I been so empresses with a place as I was for this one... Drinks are also great and really unique taste. We order drinks for groups and whoever wanted something else all up to your choose of alcohol. They have it all.. I can't wait to visit aging with more friends. It has become a must in al my Orlando trips. I'm in love....
First time I went, I asked for a dry gin martini with a twist. They made it with Nolet's, which is very floral (not dry at all). Second time I went I asked for a gin martini with Beefeater or Bombay (both commonly available dry gins) and a twist - they didn't have either of these gins. They had another dry gin they offered me instead, which was fine. But when they brought my martini, it was made with olive juice. Any respectable bartender knows a gin martini with a twist should NEVER have olive juice unless someone explicitly asks for it. My recommendation is to only order what's on the menu. Unless you're willing to play drink roulette. Maybe don't position yourself as a craft cocktail bar if you can't make a proper martini.
Edited review... my original experience is below, but Mathers has great management and pays attention as they work the kinks put during opening. We were in the same area the next night and some friends said what happened. They apologized and made an exception. Drinks were great, ambiance was top notch with a cozy vibe that allowed for great conversation over great coctails. What a cocktail connoisseur's bar should be. Beautiful women, great drinks. Definitely stop by My original review.... I had a 25 person party going out after a dinner out to celebrate before starting chemo on Monday after being diagnosed with cancer at 31. Doorman said I couldn't come in with my 25 business i friends and order premium drinks because I had sandals on. I understand dress codes as a way to keep the wrong people out, but they just lost 25 customers because the door guy doesn't understand how to use appropriate discretion. Sure the overpriced drinks are great though.
Team Market Group strikes again! Overall a job well done! From the moment I arrived to the moment I left the customer service was spectacular! If you are Downtown Orlando and looking for a place to go have a crafted cocktail, good laugh, and a great time this is definitely the place to be!!!

My girlfriend and I stopped in here on a whim. We had an excellent experience and chat with the owner. The beer selection and Cocktails are incredible. Top notch!
Solid cocktail program with a skilled bartender behind the stick. Far better use of the space than it was as a wine bar.
Joey is an amazing bartender. Drinks never disappoint.
The craft behind these cocktails is not that of amateur but of a years of experience in portions as well a proper pairing of spirits and fresh ingredients , the experience is not to be compared to any other because there is none like it. The two levels and laid back yet with a touch of class that is BauHaus .... makes for a relaxing drinking experience with just the right amount of intimacy and way to experience something new. Highly recommended for those who want to try something new, simple, sophisticated and overall just cool . - Kyle Williams
High quality drinks , atmosphere great (the drink are almost like a chemistry experience ) super cool beverages

Bold character, delicious drinks, great atmosphere, friendly bartenders. You have to walk through a parking lot on Pine to get here. It's behind the TD Bank building, but you would guess that you were somewhere far far away from the look of the interior! Lots of craft cocktails, and plenty selections to order neat. Definitely recommend checking it out - if you can find it!
Absolutely love this place, whenever my friends are in town from new york I always take them here and I'm always pleased with the service and how attentive the bartenders are. The drinks are always amazing and I love the atmosphere there it's great will be coming back for sure!
Cool place- I had a great gin fizz. Only critique is how short-staffed the bartenders were on a Friday night. It was just two and everyone waited 10-15 minutes to get a drink
My fav craft cocktail bar in Orlando! Amazing drinks; very knowledgeable bartenders.
Great place for drinks from a crew of bartenders who know how to do a lot more than pour a glass of wine or mix a simple gin & tonic. Tipped-out the bartender in advance, told her what I like, and asked her to be creative. She did not disappoint, and came up with some really unique and interesting drinks. We don't go downtown very often, and when we do, this will be a first or last stop going forward.

This is s members only venue that boasts excellent views and superb networking opportunities. There are two different lounges. One is more casual and the other requires a coat. You honestly can't beat the sunset views from their 18th floor venue. Every night is a different special and their Monday lunch can't be beat. Tuesday - Friday they have an amazing happy hour. If you are a member and able to come for breakfast, I recommend it. It's free and delicious. Don't expect a fancy breakfast but it has all you need.
Beautiful venue. Great drinks. Wonderful events
This is a private club for private member's. Fantastic service great food it's a must go
The food was great. The staff is extremely attentive and does everything possible to make your experience great. They have food/drink options that are prepared table side which is fun to watch. The attire requires a coat but if you forget one they have ones you can borrow. I would highly recommend for anyone celebrating or wanting a nice night out.
Excellent venue for conferences or meetings. Fantastic lunch as well.

Staff is friendly. Operator really knows her stuff. Best bathrooms downtown. Hosts a variety of craft beer. Chill atmosphere. Good music
Always a must when we are in the downtown area and now with food to order inside the bar a much better place.
Only twelve taps, but strongest beer selection downtown. Hidden gems in the beer cooler. Friendly staff. Delicious poke bowls!
Always have great beer and now with the Poke Bowls, I will be here a couple days a week. Excellent!!!! Service is great too!
Great beer selection and close to all downtown stuff. Beers a little pricey.
