As part of the Orlando Main Street series, I will cover the details of the districts which are part of the Main Street neighborhoods, all of them rich with history and vibrant with unique culture.

Church Street is located in the heart of downtown Orlando and has remained an entertainment hot spot for decades, dating back to the 70’s when it was a popular tourist attraction.

Church Street Orlando FLThe Church Street District runs along Church Street between S. Orange Ave and S. Division Ave. This District is working to promote the eclectic mix of historical charm (i.e. Ceviche and MoJo Bar & Grill, both originally part of the Church Street “depot”) and pulsating new energy (i.e. One80 Greygoose Lounge and Club 23) to re-attract both leisure and convention tourism into the heart of downtown Orlando.

Reportedly, the 1970s and 80s brought about more tourism business to downtown Orlando than it has ever seen. Church Street was viewed as an attraction where both locals and tourists would pay an admission charge, which encouraged a certain ease in bouncing from one establishment to another, now known as “club-hopping.” With the development of Downtown Disney and Universal Citywalk, much of the downtown tourism business was redirected back to the theme park side of Orlando.
