Fun meal and drinks near Double Tree Hotel in Orlando
A small group of co-workers and I are looking for a good bar/pub for drinks and dinner in Orlando near the Double Tree Hotel (aka. Theme Park Alley)... any suggestions?
While our drinking and dining tastes are pretty adventurous, our budgets are not; so fun but thrifty is our theme.
Go to Cafe Tu Tu Tango. They have a very eclectic menu -- all "tapas" style, or small plates, so you get to try several different things and share with everyone at the table. They have artists working in the restaurant along with dancers and other performers, and it's lots of fun.
You can find some fun bars in the restaurants at Pointe Orlando, including Taverna Opa and Tommy Bahama Tropical Cafe.
Drop down to Sand Lake Road's Restaurant Row where Timpano and Samba Room can be entertaining. A new restaurant, J. Alexander's, has an upscale bar.
