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

  1. All those years on Cayo Hueso, enticing us all to travel those miles to our last little island, and not one bar listed in Key West? OK, not many have a direct view of the Gulf waters, but still, the Chart Room? Captain Tony’s? My favorite is BO’s Fishwagon on Friday nights when ‘Cuda is playing, or the Green Parrot when the singer/songwriters gather late on the last night of the KW Songwriters Festival and play together. Magical.
