Hanson’s Shoe Repair

Screen shot 2013-05-18 at 12.04.49 PMAlways looking for the newest hotspot in town to catch-up with friends and enjoy an adult beverage or two? Well, we’re here to serve….

You may or may’ve not heard of Hanson’s Shoe Repair, a relatively new speakeasy located in the heart of downtown Orlando. I’ve been wanting to go check it for several weeks now, and just this past week I did so.

The concept with Hanson’s–which is located just above NV on Pine Street–is to text a given number the day you’d like to visit, and receive a password to use for admission. Once in, you can enjoy a low-key, intimate atmosphere. Very cute, and honestly it’s one of the only places I’ve ever experienced in Orlando that makes me feel like I’m not in Orlando.


View of the Bar from Roof Patio

As mentioned above, Hanson’s is located above NV, on the third floor. This means there’s rooftop access, and if weather permits (i.e., if it’s a nice, crisp, non-humid evening) I highly recommend taking advantage of the patio and the beautiful view of the downtown Orlando skyline. There’s plenty of things to capture your attention right on the patio, like art, lights, and foliage.

The drinks are all handmade and very, very delicious! Slightly above average in terms of price, but again – they’re handcrafted so you know you’re paying for something unique and made with love (I can only assume). And another really special thing about Hanson’s besides the drinks? Wait for it: Yes, a very faint shoe polish is pumped into the air, so as to give a very authentic touch to compliment the theme of this establishment. Fun, right?!
