Oh Red Bar…. how many stories do your dim, delightful decor hold? I know, for my sake, they typically are a little hazy and hard to recall; and for some reason smell of bourbon. Not that I’m complaining. An icon of NWFL and the 30A corridor especially; Red Bar is the place to be. It’s as simple as that. Then there is the mood. Everywhere you look there are layers. Posters, photos, memorabilia, carved names, written messages and more. So much history in such a small place. Red wax candles that are ever burning and being replaced makes one think of a medieval dining hall with the raucous friends and furiously playing musicians to match. Go here. You will love it.
While a fire completely leveled the original building in Spring 2019 the community came together to ensure that a new Red Bar would be finished by 2020.
