Description: Shortys Place is a small Liquor, Beer & Wine Bar with smoking permitted. Atmosphere is one of a kind in SW Florida!! There will be bar food starting September 1st, 2017. Shorty highly recommends the Celtic Ray, River City Grill, Dean's South of the Border, Village Fish Market, Manatees Pizza, & The Turtle Club!!! We have plenty of outdoor seating with a new outdoor bar & Pool Room. Live music on the weekends to enjoy. We have 27craft and 7 domestic taps with a few imports thrown in for good measure!!! The Bottles are ICE COLD, the coldest in town I've been told. So come on down and see Shorty, Mr. Shorty,Angie,Jayne, Caroline & Heather for a good time. We are also selling package liquor & beer to go!! We Sell Beer, The Bull S*#t is Free!!! A M F

One of our favoirte bars to visit is local dive bars in the places we vacation. This one fits!!

Great service and friendly. Place is small on the inside {as it should be} but does have outside area. Music was playing but not real good...not drunk enough yet I guess.

Going to the bathroom on the right is a MUST! I will leave it at that. NO KIDS Ha!

Small shuffle board but fun to play and win....sorry Joe

Beer and wine only.

Great little bar with a tremendous selection of beer. However no food is served thus smoking is allowed. Outdoor seating alleviates this problem but not recommended in the summer months.

This pub has 24 beers on tap with some very good IPA and stouts. They have microbrews from some of the best breweries in the country. Fun outdoor seating with fire pit. We had no food and they offer only snacks but it is worth a visit just for GREAT beer.
