For over sixteen years, the little block of Wall St. off Orange Ave. in downtown Orlando has been a spot for local fun. It started with just one bar and has grown to include seven venues – Wall St. Cantina, Hen House, Hooch, Sideshow, Waitiki, Shine, and Monkey Bar. Over the years, as the number of bars lining the plaza climbed, the block parties became signature Orlando weekend events to attend. They center around anything from Orlando Magic games to Orlando City Soccer matches to Rumfests to Margaritafests to Hey, It's the Weekend and We Love to Party Fests.
Wall Street Plaza is popular with the young professional crowd in the 407area for weekend fun, but on top of their beloved Orlando block parties, the plaza offers holiday and corporate party packages. It's their lesser-known side operation not many people are aware of but need to be.
