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.
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
What a neat find. Can’t 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. I’m sure the whole "crazy arts"theme isn’t 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.
So this NOT a beer place. Came for dinner with family and in laws. Lovely food fun decor and lively ambiance. Great family spot I would recommend to any family coming to town. However the beer list just normal place that has some craft. Perhaps back when orlando beer wasteland or compared to parts of parks but basic beer list. A few ticks to be had but come for food and fun and beer would be bonus.

A great dining experience... and I do mean EXPERIENCE. Always fun eclectic menu and some decent beers on tap. I’ll be hitting this place every time I’m in Orlando... if I can help it!
Large well decorated artsy place with great ambience. 10 taps with only one from Florida, but there are an additional 50 or so cans and bottles with great choices from Cigar City, etc. Food is exquisite and to complement all you have an illusionist roaming around and entertaining the children at tables. Very good to be here,
