Well this is a very unique place to say the least. I liked it! Visited on the WHF III with Woody and our Couch surfing host the Fat American. It looks like an old Laundromat converted into a coffee, food, beer and movie store. Divided into 2 sections. A small serving area and a very large area for movies, a photo machine and chairs for people mostly on their laptops. Several wood style tables outside (where I consumed my St. Bernardus Apt 12).
The lady behind the counter said they had twelve taps and a 35 bottle selection. Woody grabbed several bottles to share and show our host and numerous friends how he reviews beers.
I along with a couple of very cool ladies BS and was totally distracted by the St. Bernardus. At this point in the night we were felling no pain, but the place was just cool. Windows had silver Mylar up and the people were mellow and enjoying themselves.
Service was poor and slow although she was serving beer, food and coffee by herself. Not a typical beer bar destination and if that's what you are looking for this is not your place. But if you are into a new and different experience, give it a try. The beer choices were excellent and they say ever changing.
Tip; Plan your bathroom stops as they only have one that is unisex. The ladies cut me a break when I had to go and allowed me to go to the front of the line. Thank You!!!

An eclectic mix of video store, coffee shop, beer bar, and sandwich shop with one unisex bathroom. They also had a photo booth inside. There was a small outdoor snug to right of entry. Our CS host, Alex "Fat American" took us and we met up with Tig the server from Red Light, Red Light. Great vibe, decent selection - four premium imports on-tap. I cannot really get totally wound up about this place. It became more of a place to hang out before giving up for the evening. Remind me to tell you about the mixed grill that was postulated while we talked.

I headed over to this place right before I left to say I went there. I am a movie buff as well as a beer snob, so I thought the marriage of brew and film could turn out great. Maybe my expectations were too high, but I was somewhat disapointed as it turned out to be a slightly better version of blockbuster. Note - if you are a movie buff they don't have any exotic or hard to find movies you can't get off Netflix.
The place is just a giant video rental store with a little cafe or a couple of tables to drink outside. I saw a band flyer, but this seems like a horrible place to catch a band. At least the beer selection was good - I got a St Bernardus Abt 12 in a chalice mug for a reasonable price. I would recommend going to this place once to check it out, but it isn't that place to make your place. And as for the one reviewer who said it is trendster, I agree. There are some poser beer geeks and movie buffs spending their parent's money and looking like something out of a Calvin Klein or MTV ad.

Ugh, what a trite little place this is.
I had to go to this place because my brother-in-law's band was playing there. It's essentially a hole in the wall video store that the owners tacked on a bar and cafe. The crowd is awful, very scenester (for those who aren't sure, these are the unwashed masses that hang out in college towns and feel they're better than everyone else. Tight shirts and emaciated bodies are the norm). Anyway, despite my prejudices about the crowd I gave it a shot. They only saving grace is the beer selection. It's huge for a bar in Orlando, they even had St. Bernardus Abt 12 on tap which blew my mind. Not only that, but they actually served it in the propper glasswear. Okay so maybe it's not that bad. $5.80 for a glass of St. Bernardus on tap is worth the novelty at least, how often can you say you've had that. I decided to follow that up with a 22 oz bomber of Shakespear Stout. No glasswear for that, had to use a plastic cup..ugh. Despite the selection, the prices are outragous, the stout was 7.00 (which I didnt realize until after the girl behind the counter opened it and I had no choice but to take it according to her).
If I ever have to go back to this place I am not drinking there, my wallet just can't handle the price.
