FLORA-BAMA LOUNGE AND PACKAGE

Although it seems like it has been here for generations, it actually opened in 1964, and although its name indicates that the business straddles the line that divides two states, it actually is fully in Florida. But everything else about the Flora-Bama Lounge and Package is very real.

This true Southern beach roadhouse is where Florida meets Alabama, with direct feet-in-the-white-sugar-sand access to the Gulf of Mexico. A lively and legendary destination for fun and friendship, the Flora-Bama prides itself on its unkempt appearance and its never-ending, always-changing lineup of music and happenings, some scheduled, others not. If you’ve never experienced the joys of competitive mullet-tossing across a state line, then you have not yet lived life to its fullest, nor do you have the stories to prove you know where the fun really is. 

Flora-Bama Lounge and Package, 17401 Perdido Key Drive, Pensacola, Fla., (850) 492-0611 or (251) 980-5118
