St. Matthew’s Tavern at the Orlando Beer Garden (Facebook) on Mills Avenue has put in new windows in the front of the bar.
In fact, they have uncovered old windows that were covered up years ago by a previous tenant.
The string of bars that have operated in the space over the years (Silver Hammer, Cactus Club, Paradise and more recently, Orlando Nights) have been notoriously dark and shut off from any sort of sunlight near the main bar. The newest tenant/owner, Matt Fassl, decided to make a change last week and to let the sun shine in.
The snow flake mural pictured above is part of a rotating seasonal theme that Fassl changes every few months.
The next artist will be Boy Kong as part of the upcoming Buh-Bye event (Facebook).
