The Station Set to Open October 16th, Sources SayBeyond UCF, Business, Entertainment, News, Night Life — By Alex Perez on September 12, 2012 at 10:14 pm Tweet
The long anticipated opening of The Station will be on October 16th, which is a soft opening to the general public, according to sources within the Evolve group. Sources also say the full grand opening will be a Halloween themed party on October 31. These dates have not been confirmed by The Station owners, however.
According to Mikey Stylez, the owner, the interior of The Station is looking like “a million bucks” with a $2,000 party machine, granite countertops, an empire state building and stop light structure, LED lights around the bar, and a stage with haze machines.
The Station will be serving mojitos, martinis, tropical drinks, and freshly blended frozen drinks, setting it apart from the competing UCF bars. An initial concern of these drinks specials is whether or not the newly hired bartenders would be experienced enough to successfully serve these drinks.
Stylez told us, “Bartenders are going to be professionally trained by a representative from Barcardi. The entire business is extremely professional from the bottom up and it is being planned to turn into a franchise,” Stylez said.
Bacardi, Grey Goose, Heineken and Red Bull are heavily involved as sponsors for The Station.
Another beneficial aspect of The Station is that Stylez will be able to incorporate his entertainment company, Evolve Group, to the success of the business. Evolve Group’s mission is to “evolve the entertainment industry in the state of Florida” and the team plans to execute this same mission at The Station.
“We are excited about being able to utilize our venue for The Station as a means of bringing in national talent, which no other bar in the city can do,” manager Matt Denuzzo said.
Knightnews.com will have a video tour of The Station on Friday, September 14th.
