Jimmy Buffett’s favorite Gulf Coast Bars

An article in June/July issue of Garden & Gun magazine lists Buffett’s favorite Gulf Coast Bars: “Why We Love the Gulf – Jimmy Buffett Drinks Here” (by Elizabeth Hutchison)

The son of a son of a Mississippi sailor, Jimmy Buffett got his start bouncing around Biloxi dive bars and New Orleans drinking dens before finding fame in Key West. “Culturally and historically, the Gulf is a unique stretch of water and land,” he says. “It always feels like home.” We asked the sun-
tanned troubadour to revisit his roots via his favorite coastal watering holes. “A place where you can have a cold beer and look out at the water,” he advises, “is the essence of throttling down.”

The list includes:
1) Bluegill – Spanish Fort, Alabama
2) Island Hotel – Cedar Key, Florida
3) Lucy’s Retired Surfers Bar – New Orleans, Louisiana
4) LuLu’s at Homeport Marina – Gulf Shores, Alabama
5) Scranton’s – Pascagoula, Mississippi
6) Trapani’s Eatery – Bay St. Louis, Mississippi
