This place was the highlight of our trip to Orlando! It is located among thousands of other restaurants along the "Strip" but easily stands out. A vibrant patio area greets guests after your complimentary valet car service, and an even livelier and artistic interior greets you beyond that. Numerous local artists display their work here, all for sale, and there are typically one or more on hand each night preparing new works. The service was superb and the food simply amazing. The beer selection is small and diverse with nothing extraordinary available, but solid choices nonetheless. If you can only visit one place in Orlando, this should be it.
Easy to find location with good parking in the front and hotel lot behind. Active place with large local and tourist crowd. Got seat at bar in the back and was met with quick and knowledgable staff. 8 taps and 31 bottles. had local porter and a Cigar Ciity. Had the Calamari and was served quickly, warm and good portion. Blend of hispanic, art deco and moving stage show. Enjoyed the visit.
I really liked this place, wth fusion tapas. Had the grilled pears on pecan crisp with asagio and spinach salad, and curried chichen salad on flat bread. They had 26 bottles and 7 taps, including Lost Coast products, Red Seal, Harpoon, Delirium Nocturnum ($$$). Service was friednly and clientele going from tourists to movie biz people. (close to Universal Studios, FL).

Crazy ass place on the weekend. Long wait and loud is the order of the night. But the service and food is really worth the wait. And not a half bad beer menu as well. Dare to enter the tourist area of Orlando, well then you asked for it...but all in all this place is worth the trouble.
What a neat find. Canít believe I almost passed on this place because of the name. Excellent selection of regularly rotating tapas and taps. Friendly service and interesting local artwork. A great choice for lunch.

LOVED THIS PLACE!! The food is tapas style, and quite eclectic, much like the decor. No matter how creative though, every dish we had was delicious. The tapas style is all about sharing, so you get a good range of what their culinary capabilities are, and they nailed everything. another nice thing about tapas is that you really can taper the expense to almost any budget. The service was fantastic while we were there-- they really went out of the way to make our kids comfortable and happy. Iím sure the whole "crazy arts"theme isnít for everyone, but we really enjoyed it. Pretty much every creative medium is represented, including an in-house tap dancer that gave a couple of brief-but-cool shows during the meal. Even had an artist painting in oils as you walk in. The beer was all quality, but the range of choices is pretty much correct at 8 taps and 20-30 bottles, with one or two hard-to-find micros. We would make a point to go again if given the opportunity.

A great dining experience... and I do mean EXPERIENCE. Always fun eclectic menu and some decent beers on tap. Iíll be hitting this place every time Iím in Orlando... if I can help it!
Visited in 2104 obviousl forgot to rate, but i was totally underwhelmed by this place. Sevice want great , dont remmeber much exciting beer wise. all told had been looking forward but came away disapointed
A very cool place that you definitely better get to early because it can get packed .... they had it all artists working on pieces as you come in, caricatures, art for sale on the wall, belly dancers and awesome food ... our server wasnít that great but the food comes out as its done so people just kept bringing the food which was nice ... the beer list was ok, the bottle list was mostly macro when I went and was about 15 different beers and the taps were spread out between styles and where they were from .... all of the food was 9-12 bucks in range and worth every penny ... if your in orlando definitely stop in its well worth the trip
Iíve never been to a place like this before. I walk in and there are crazy paintings everywhere that you can buy, all the colors inside are so bright, music playing, thereís people walking all over, 2 guys making paintings on the spot, a guy upside down on a stool, a bellydancer. You can sit on couches and eat, good selection of beer nothing you havenít seen before but all good, the food is insane everything on there I had never seen before. A bit pricey but you pay for what you get an extremely cool place to be. Iíd rate the ambiance a 10 if I could.
