I had a dream a while back that Church Street Station was filled with nothing but really cool beer bars and the old place was once again a cool spot to be. Maybe Eternal Tap is the first step toward making Church Street a bustling hive of coolness once again. I was invited to stop by and check out the space the other day by owners Jeremy and Amanda Roberts and was very impressed by what I saw!
I was really floored by the size of this place. There are also some very cool things that Eternal Tap has to offer that will help them carve a niche into the expanding Orlando Craft Beer scene. First, they serve food. ET prides itself on having a menu that is simple, delicious and fresh. Hand tossed pizzas, huge salads topped with sliced deli meat and fresh baked cookies for dessert!
Eternal Tap will also have a full liquor bar with an emphasis placed on high quality small batch liquors as well as local craft liquors. As far as we know, this is the only place in town that will have 45 craft beers on tap, liquor, and food. ET's beer selection will feature as many beers from the local Florida Craft Beer Scene as possible! Eternal tap will also have 2 separate bars.
I wasn't aware that there are actually basements in the fine city of Orlando but there is definitely one here! This is what really makes Eternal tap unique. Downstairs will be home to a Speakeasy themed bar that will have a some specialty liquors and more limited released craft beers. Not sure if there is a secret knock or a password to get in. If there is, we'll try to find out that information and pass it on to you as soon as possible!
I was most excited about this Speakeasy Bar downstairs. It was previously used as a wine cellar and Jeremy felt like it was a massive waste of space so he decided to turn it into another bar. I have never seen a bar like this in Orlando and I'm looking forward to having a beer down there!
Eternal Tap has not announced an official opening date yet but it is expected to be very soon! It is located in Church Street Station pretty much directly across the street from what used to be Bliss right near the railroad tracks. ET will be open for lunch daily with buy one get one personal pizzas. Happy Hour will be from 3:00-8:00pm daily!
