Topher (n.): 1. Old English slang term hailing from around the time of Geoffrey Chaucer, referring to someone who worked hard, and played harder. 2. Basically everyone who works here.

Having been friends since before the dawn of the Internet, owners Ron DiDonato and Jason Perez, veterans and local legends in the Orlando service industry, and bartending communities, decided one night over a drink (or three) to open up a watering hole of their very own. They found a former storage unit hidden away in the warehouses of Ivanhoe Village, and literally carved out a place for themselves in the world.

Days before the bar was to celebrate its first anniversary, Ron and Jason received word that the land on which they had built the bar had been sold to developers, and that their lease would not be renewed. The warehouse district would be leveled in a year's time, making room for the Yard project that remains under construction today. On the night of November 10th, 2015, the original Thirsty Topher went out with one mother of a blowout, blowing every last keg in the building.

After a period of about three weeks, the new Thirsty Topher was unveiled, merely three streets down, and one street over from the former location, on the main drag of Barley Row, at the corner of Virginia, and Baltimore! The owners and staff had worked tirelessly, and meticulously to preserve the minimalist, rustic feel of their former home. (Those with a keen eye will notice that the tables inside the bar are made from the shingles from the front of the building that used to house the old Topher, and that the shingle bearing the bar's previous address hangs above the back door.)
