Historic downtown Orlando property — home to Tanqueray’s bar — sold to New England realty group

Perennial downtown dive bar Tanqueray’s — recently immortalized in ‘The Sims‘ — weathered the pandemic, but the Central Florida real-estate sales boom might soon shift the bar’s fortunes.

The Orlando Business Journal on Thursday reported that the Historic Metcalf Building — home to basement tenant Tanqueray’s and sundry attorneys and architects — sold for nearly $10 million to a New England realty group named FoxRock.

This is the first time in roughly two decades that the property has changed ownership, also per OBJ. Located at the corner of Orange Avenue and Pine Street, the Historic Metcalf Building is right in the heart of downtown Orlando.

Just how “historic” is the Historic Metcalf Building?…
