Eola Square became downtown Orlando's newest hub for dining and entertainment during 2011. The "square" is in fact a block of Eola Drive that is now home to two new restaurants from FMI Restaurant Group, Prickly Pear
and Nick's Italian Kitchen
, as well as Sonoma Draught House
and Mucho Tequila and Tacos. The Florida Theatrical Association opened two event spaces in the Sanctuary condominium: the Mezz
, a 7,000-square-foot ballroom, and the Abbey
, a live entertainment venue and lounge. Aura Bar & Restaurant and DTA Lounge are scheduled to open in early 2012.
