How is Beach Place doing

I had heard most of the bars and restaurants closed. is that true? I was looking to stay down there in a few months but would take a pass if there is no night life.

There are two new places about to open- a tiki bar called Big Kahuna very soon and also a Sonic restaurant- perhaps later this Spring /early Summer but it is true that many of the other bars are no longer there- Lulu's Bait Shack and Hooters still operate.

However, there are many other spots within an easy walk of Beach Place , so I wouldn't consider Beach Place your only option for night life along the beach- The W has a lively bar/club called Whiskey River and Exit 66 is a fairly new nearby choice- as well as many other spots .

There hasn't been a fast food restaurant there since McDonalds closed in 2002. It's about time.

Other than a sign, I didn't see any hint that a Sonic will open any time soon.

I am bummed out too Audrey, but even more so because it will not be a drive in Sonic . They could not have picked a place with worse parking than Beach Place- that garage is a nightmare in my opinion and I'm not sure it's worth it- as much as I love Sonic. I'm just hoping this means they may be moving into this market and maybe we'll see another one in the future in a more accessible location for us locals... I have feeling one trip into that garage and I'll decide I can live without Sonic.. not happily of course..I guess if I'm down there for some other reason I can always walk in...
