We happened into the Bowery Station while Slim Fatz (blues guitar and vocals) was playing which is always a treat. The bar is situated in an interesting old building not far from the water. Friendly owners, decent wines, good prices.

We are sorry that you may have spoken to individuals that obviously do not support our efforts to bring great live music to Apalachicola. The reality is we have far too much demand by musicians to play our stage, and hence we are unable to...More
