You walk in and it is an updated theme on a punk and biker bar. Lots of red and black on the walls with a notable wall painting of a pseudo-ghost rider, a dining area with about 30 tables, a lounge type area with dart boards and a pool table, and the bar on the center right in front of the kitchen. Service was solid; the bar was full so we sat at a table and were promptly served. Although she wasnít the most knowledgeable, the menu told you most of what you needed to know, and she did tell what was replaced with what on the tap list. Solid selection of varied styles and even some beer that I havenít seen at other places. The food was typical bar food with an updated American feel, well done but nothing mind blowing. Average beer prices for the area and what I expected to pay for what I purchased; they also do 5oz mini pours for half the listed price, good if you want to try a lot of things on tap. Overall, a solid new place for beer lovers in Orlando. Not sure how long it will last though with Redlight right around the corner and multiple World of Beers in the town; we were there on a Friday at midnight, and except for the bar, the place was pretty dead.
Was really impressed with this place, especially after visiting redlight redlight immediately after. Tap list was great, had a Sublimely for 5 bucks, and the prices ranged from average to below average. As stated here, the food was nothing short of fantastic. Had the smoked wings and cajun seasoned tater tots, and was thoroughly impressed with it all, including the in house made condiments. The vibe was relaxed, wasnít too loud and got a seat that faced the t.v. above the bar. The waitress was helpful and honest about her likes/dislikes, and was decently knowledgeable about what she was serving. Iíd go here weekly if I lived in Orlando, my favorite place iíve been to yet overall.
Best bar in Orlando blowing the overrated and hipster infused redlight redlight. Excellent food, great rotating tap list which never gets stale, and always have good tunes playing. Iíd live there if I could.
Stopped by on my recent trip to Orlando. Cross between a dive bar and a restaurant, but itís clean and smoke free! Very nice selection of beer, especially Florida draft. Very tasty food as well. Pretty loud on my Friday night visit and waitress was inattentive and weird. Would go back.
We always have a great time at Oblivion! Their draft beer selection is incredible, with 40 rotating taps. They have a good variety, from Saison & Lambic to DIPA & Barleywine!
They also understand the importance of their glassware and temps. Very critical.
Aside from the beer, the owners are very inviting and always listen to suggestions and comments, and the food is to-die-for! They have the best burgers in Central Florida (maybe the best anywhere in the world), amazing wings made with tons of love, and their sweet potato fries are hands-down the best anywhere in the world. The chef prepares a delicious aioli for the tots, and itís a must when youíre there!
Did I mention they have a great beer selection?

This place has a very laid-back and fun atmosphere. Among the insane tap list is indeed some of the best bar food Iíve ever had. If youíre in the area, this place is a must for the craft beer connoisseur.
This is a great place to hang out and drink some great brews. Their 40 taps plus a wide selection of bottles make this a great place for any craft brew enthusiast to enjoy. Featuring a wide selection of ever-changing taps of all different styles from lambics to pilsners to impy stouts, there is something for everyone. The food is incredibly well done with a small but refined menu of gastronomically pleasing food. The waitresses seemed somewhat knowledgeable of the brews and offered recommendations of the food. A new-age hipster locale that is laid back and welcoming to anyone looking for some good food and good brews. Definitely recommended.
