SAK Comedy Lab is out to tickle your funny bone but not shock your sensibilities. Snack food is served, and only non-alcoholic beverages are available here.

Located just a mile south of the Orlando Arena, which is home to the city's popular Orlando Heat basketball team, this bar and eatery draws crowds of sports fans. Part of its appeal lies in its bargain 24-ounce domestic drafts, part in its sporty atmosphere which offers you an opportunity for a game of darts; and the bar even hosts its own league. On the menu here are the traditional simple choices: club sandwiches, hoagies, hot dogs and chili concoctions. The bar charges no cover.
Housed in a circa-1929 building that served for 50 years as home to the Firestone Service and Tire Center, this landmark club is now one of Central Florida's largest and best-known dance arenas. Much of the 13,000-square-foot building is dedicated to dance floors and a large stage on which bands perform nightly. Sometimes raucous, the crowd grooves under wild lighting. Saturday features a predominantly gay crowd.
White Wolf Café has remained a favorite for two reasons: fun décor and good food. Stained-glass windows, Tiffany-style hanging lamps and decorative crockery set the stage, and on weekend nights, patrons pop in for coffee, dessert or a drink. Live music, usually acoustic, is offered on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings. The menu offers a wide selection, from vegetarian and other low-calorie offerings to a calories-be-darned Three-Cheese Lasagna. Chicken Brioche and Thin-Crust White Pizza are popular options.
You don't go to the Fillin' Station Sports Bar for the decor, you go for the hamburgers. Named "best burger" by the Orlando Sentinel, the Fillin' Station's specialty is a huge and juicy patty topped, at the customer's request, with cheese and other traditional fixings. The clientele is a mix of families and sports fans. That gas-station theme is enhanced by many televisions on which the big games of the season are shown.
