World of Beer draws barley astronauts in its gravitational pull, boasting 40 craft draft beers from around the globe and a collection of asteroid-sized pub bites. The bar’s expert staff pairs beer lovers with superb selections such as Magic Hat #9 ($5), a crisp English ale, and Lost Coast Tangerine Wheat ($5), which piques palates with citrusy flavors flowing through the confluence of wheat, crystal malts, and Perle hops. Add salty satisfaction to a hopping hop-laden party with an order of soft pretzels ($4) or pretzel bites ($4), or talk sense into a Stone Arrogant Bastard Ale ($6) with a pastrami sammie ($9) or buffalo chicken dip ($8). Sip suds on the outdoor patio or inside among the brick walls, warm lighting, and numerous flat-screen TVs. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights, live music enables rhythmic imbibing and air-drumming using plates of beef sticks ($1).
Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine is a family owned business, established in 2005, that offers variety of authentic Turkish food from many regions of Turkey. Bosphorous Turkish Cuisine adapted its name from one of the oldest cities in the world, Istanbul, which was once known as the Constantinople in the early 13th century.
Amid brick walkways and burnt-red walls, leaves rustle softly. Steam rises in the distance, then quietly disappears. One moment, this place emits smoky hints of cedar; the next, it teems with notes of ginger and cinnamon bark. This isn’t an idyllic college campus on a brisk autumn night. It’s Infusion Tea, a charming café on the balmy streets of Orlando. Sun streams through oversized windows, warming chilly scoops of gelato and triple-decker cream-cheese sandwiches. More than 70 types of tea—including blacks, greens, oolongs, and herbals—can be ordered hot or cool, like most jazz saxophone solos. Though they hail from faraway lands such as China, Japan, and South Africa, many of these teas are organic and fair-trade certified, reflecting values owner Christina Cowherd cultivated while traveling the world in the Peace Corps. Rare, premium teas such as gyokuro transport taste buds to new frontiers as well, whether nestled in a takeaway tin or steeped in a pot made for sharing in house.
Gathered at a local watering hole with his buddies, Chris Brown hatched an idea: a bar where guests could drink bottled craft beer in the company of classic, stand-up arcade games. Chris's vision transformed into BART, where coolers stock wine and craft beers from breweries such as Bell's, Harpoon, and Dogfish Head. The brews change every week, as do the free games, which include favorites from the 70s, 80s, and 90s such as Centipede, Donkey Kong, and Pac Man, the classic game that taught a generation that the best way to overcome their demons was to eat them. After beating the boss levels, patrons can enjoy more brews while checking out the local artwork.
