The music website Consequence of Sound has named Orlando's The Social as one of the "100 Greatest Music Venues in America."

Coming in at number 96, the Social was praised by COS as "the city’s best place to catch rock, electronic, and weekly acid jazz sets." COS further notes: "The midsize venue is mostly built around concerts, but has sustained itself over time by becoming an incredible dance space that keeps the club kids, the rockers, and the Salsa fanatics equally entertained."

When you're one of the very few other Florida venues mentioned other than the mighty Churchill's Pub in Miami, that definitely means you are doing something very, very right. Congrats, Social.
