Thirsty Topher is no longer a cash-only bar

Forget about all those dollar dollar bills, y'all, because cash no longer rules everything about Thirsty Topher.

After moving from their old Ivanhoe Village location a few weeks ago, the popular bar and wine stop was operating under a not-so-convenient cash only policy. But, this is no longer the case. Drinks on the company card! 

If you have yet to visit the new location at 601 Virginia Dr, Orlando (they still don't have a sign out front), it still has all the charm of its previous digs and it even sports a new happy hour – $1 off all drafts and house wines from 4 p.m to 7 p.m., as well as 11 p.m. to 2 a.m.
