Description: Shortys Place is a small Beer & Wine smoking Tavern. Only pub in town with a 7am Happy Hour!!! Atmosphere is one of a kind in SW Florida!! There is no food at this time, but will be incorporated at a later time. Shorty highly recommends the Celtic Ray, River City Grill, Dean's South & North of the Border, and Manatees Pizza!!! We have plenty of outdoor seating with a new outdoor bar & Pool Room. Live music on the weekends to enjoy. We have 28 craft and 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,Chelsea,Mo, & Heather for a good time. We Sell Beer, The Bull S*#t is Free!!!

“Fun place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 April 2014

They only serve beer and wine. Reasonable prices. No food. They added a nice outdoor patio and have different types of entertainment. Fun place to hang out

“Excellent Draft Beer Selections”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2014

Shorty's has a 'honky tonk' or 'Old Florida' feel. There's an indoor bar area and a covered area. We've only experienced the outside area and enjoyed it for the beer selection. I particularly love Shiner Bock Black Lager that is hard to find. We know of one place in Naples where it is always on tap. The staff is friendly and attentive. This is a great place to enjoy a beer with family or friends.

“Dive into a True Dive Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

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.

“Too Smoky”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2013

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.
