The Palace Saloon… Florida’s Oldest

20170202_122150_richtonehdr

Centre Street, Amelia Island.
The Palace Saloon – Florida’s oldest bar. It opened in the late 1800s and was once the watering hole for the Carnegies (who had a mansion on nearby Cumberland Island) and the Rockefellers. It was the last American tavern to close during Prohibition! Still a favorite spot with locals and tourists alike.

Pirate Pete guards the entrance – only allowing thirsty people with money to enter.

Thanks for stopping by!
