B. Nice Patio Bar (Website), a small outdoor bar located on the corner of The Metropolitan of Orlando at 151 E. Washington Street [GMap] will close at the end of the month.
The open-air bar opened back in 2019 (we did an episode of “Bungalower and The Bus” there) under the direction of Brian Nies and Victoria Nelli. It regularly featured outdoor music, DJs, and performances.
According to Nelli, the last day of operations for B. Nice is scheduled for May 28. According to Nelli, she is looking to open a new venue in downtown Orlando called “The Arena,” which will be larger, have a liquor license, and have air conditioning, saying, “The sky is the limit. Braving 110-degree heat in August isn’t cute.” Paperwork was still being signed at the time of this post and Nelli was unable to share more on the new project.
A farewell party will be hosted by local music collective All My Homies (Instagram) on the 28th from 3-11 p.m.
