I had the privilege of visiting the newest addition to Audubon Park's East End Market last week. I'd seen the Instagram posts and heard the hype, but I wanted to check it out for myself. Located on the second floor of East End, The Neighbors is a colorful, incredibly local gift shop. It's also a cocktail bar! How fun to have a place that contains two things I enjoy: local gifts for people I love and fancy cocktails I've never heard of!
Some of my favorite gifts in the shop are the countless stickers ( many of us that have adventure vans absolutely love stickers!), the handmade prints and jewelry, and most of all, anything that talks about how awesome Orlando is. Orlando is my home and I love it so much. I'm always proud to represent our beautiful city! Some favorite local businesses represented in this shop included Swan City (love them!), Bloomwolf studio, and The Rocky Pet. Fun names for fun and local businesses!
I do regret not visiting this cute hangout spot in the evening, because I can only imagine how fun it is to drink a specialty cocktail in this place. I see a fun night out in the future! I absolutely love how welcoming the lounge spot above looks. Soft chairs, cute tables to set some drinks, and a view! Everything I want in a cocktail bar.
I definitely recommend this place if you're looking for a gift for anyone at all, if you have a craving for a cute drink, or both! I'll be back soon for some serious Christmas shopping!
