If you're a nightlife-loving local you're sure to have heard of Chillers on Church Street. The oldest bar in downtown Orlando, this establishment has been a hot place to party since the nineties. If you know Chillers then chances are you're familiar with Latitudes as well; the tiki-themed rooftop bar is a scenic escape found two stories above Chillers. Sandwiched between the two is Cahoots, one of our favorite Orlando "Bar-Arcades". Cahoots is a chill craft beer bar located in the space formerly known as Big Belly Brewery. It's been around for a little over a year now and has a nice selection of beverages and games to keep you entertained.
Get In Cahoots For Craft Beer And Video Games In Downtown Orlando
When I stopped in the Downtown Orlando bar for a Friday happy hour in Orlando, the bar is both cozy and spacious. Natural tones of wood and copper paired with a friendly bartender create a warm vibe. To my left, a group of patrons played N64's Mario Cart on an HD TV behind the bar, and to my right was a TV hooked to a Game Cube. I order a double oaked bourbon from a large selection of whiskeys and peruse the craft beers. I was excited to see beer from local breweries in the lineup. Cahoots offers twenty-six drafts and dozens of bottles. I ended up opting for a grapefruit IPA from Tomoka Brewing Company, though I was also tempted by a pour of a key lime draft from Central Florida's Dead Lizard Brewing Company.
Alongside their 90s throwback consoles, Cahoots offers old-school arcade games. In the lineup, you'll find Ms. Packman, pinball, Terminator Salvation, Super Cheex and Blasteroid. They also have darts, Golden Tee, air hockey, and (my personal favorite) skeeball. If sports are your thing, Cahoots has an arsenal of TVs to go with their NFL Ticket package. They also show NHL, MBA, MLS, and MLB games. Speaking of games -- check out Cahoots on Wednesdays at 5:30PM to play some Tasty Trivia and throwback nickel beers.
