Yelp Orlando's Ode to the '80s at The Fifth
"That's all they really want, Some fun when the working day is done, *yelpers* - they want to have fun! Oh *yelpers* just want to have fun!" So the lyrics are a bit different but it's true, girls and boys alike, all yelpers just want to have fun and that's exactly what we did on a Tuesday night!
We introduced Orlando yelpers to The Fifth during our Summertime Street Soiree but it was time to invade the gorgeous, new space and indulge, elite style! The theme? Yes, we took it back to the 80's! Neon, fringe, anything went and everyone brough it!
The Fifth brings a feel of popular big city dining concepts from Manhattan to Miami right here to Central Florida. Where else in Downtown Orlando can you grab a bite noon or night, sip a delicious cocktail, stock up on your favorite liquor and all in a sleek, inviting, comfortable and entertaining atmosphere assuring you will want to return. This fancy spot delivered in a fun, upscale way.
"The decor of The Fifth was stunning and I was really impressed with the lighting and the bar itself. The drinks offered this night were an Ascot made with EG Windsor Vodka, Elder flower juice, Ginger Ale and Lemon (Very tasty!), Vodka your own way, and Redd's Apple Ale." - Christopher O.
We sampled some of the delicious items on the delectable menu including caprese skewer, house-made hummus and cucumbers and a variety of flatbreads. We washed it all down with some of Winter Park's very own Enlightened Grain Spirits. We bathed in the feature drink, the Ascot which was a blend of the Windsor EG Vodka, elderflower liqueur, ginger ale and fresh lemon. Refreshing Redd's Apple Ale also was in full effect.
Since it was the beginning of the week, we wanted to make sure we were able to get up in the AM for life duty so we sampled NOHO “The Hangover Defense“™ - an all new Functional Lifestyle Beverage that helps you prevent the dreaded “hangover” effects you feel after enjoying alcoholic beverages. NOHO - “The Drink BEFORE You Drink” and that we did! Of course the cherry on top were some sweet delectables including Pumpkin tarts, Salted Caramel shooters and Key Lime goodness from Sweet Beginning Desserts!
"Colleen had us join in on a fun game of Question and Answer! I suddenly found myself talking to everyone! I did get to see some fun Yelp friends and made a few new ones! Oh and the Snap! photo booth was a hit! Can't wait to see my face in a few of the shots! LOL... All in all it was a fun night!" - Christopher O.
With a theme full of bright colors, side ponytails and dope glasses, we had to have SNAP! Studio Booth there to bring in the fun. We had various groups rock their way through the booth and snap away! Check out all of the photos here. Also, Jim White was our roaming photographer that was snappin' away the candids. You can check out all those here and check out Jim's full portfolio here.
