A wonderful, comfortable and clean bar in same location as Garbo's. Happy Hour from 3 pm to 6 pm. Beer is $4.50 and red/white sangria $5. White is the best too!! Live music at 8 pm. Very nice.

Stopped for a few drinks while eating tacos from Garbos. Nice outside patio seating. Inside bar seats about 10 people. 2 high top tables provides additional seating. One TV. Very friendly/good bartender. About 25 microbrews in bottles, plus few on tap. Wine also available. No liquor. Happy Hour 3-6pm and 11pm-12am.

A unique place with a good size bar area and lots of outdoor seating. The bar is located inside the restaurant and the food is ordered outside from an old style motor home.

We stopped for Garbo's but opted for the beer at Grunts with our food. They had a really good band so it was great to sit out in their courtyard area. Nice evening out just off Duval.

Grunts is a cool little bar at the end of Caroline Street. Just adjacent from Kelleys. We had some of the mix drinks. Margaritas and Sangria. They also have a good assortment of beer. The staff is great. Wish I would have went there more instead of going to to over crowded tourist bars.

It was my wife's favorite bar. Very nice outdoor seating area. Small inside the bar. Entertaining band played at night. Decent beer selection.

A beautiful brick courtyard and relaxed surroundings with bamboo and palm trees. Located in old town but it feels like miles away. Wifi available.
