Frosty’s Christmastime Lounge is the most seasonably appropriate bar in Orlando right now



Frosty’s Christmastime Lounge
50 E. Central Blvd., 407-969-0911,

Essay question:Only a Grinch would turn up his nose at Frosty’s, where you can drink under a soapy fake snowfall while gazing upon the most comprehensive collection of Christmas memorabilia outside of your Aunt Carol’s garage. A Charlie Brown Christmas on the TV screens, Bing Crosby warbling in your ear, Rudolph’s red nose blinking at you under the Christmas countdown clock … sure, it’s all seasonally appropriate right now, but trust us, in the dog days of summer you’ll enjoy this icy-cool theme even more. And the craft cocktail-inspired snow cones (Aviation, tequila-thyme, roasted coconut rum) won’t go amiss either.
