Swamp was a fun outdoor rock club but now has closed its doors and is changing into something else... hope whatever it becomes can contribute to the debauchery of locals and tourists alike much like its predecessor.

Went to the Swamp for a local band that was playing. The dance floor really was great and open and had enough room to dance, despite the crowd. I remember the bar looking like a gross, run down place on the outside but once you get inside it's actually fairly nice. Good drinks, nice staff plus has a beach view.... More

A friend and I recently visited The Swamp Club during our stay at Fort Walton Beach. We were a bit skeptical going in due to some mixed reviews; however, we were so glad we came! The crowd was very diverse in age, race, and gender. The music was amazing and upbeat. We were served by 3 different bartenders, and they... More

I rarely write reviews for places unless my experience was beyond incredible or far below subpart. We had so much fun here. We arrived shortly after they opened for the night so there were only a few people sitting at the bar. Our bartender told us about a $2 Bacardi special so we took advantage of that. My drink of...

I go to this club all the time , driving from Panama City over an hour away. It's always a good time . They have drink specials every single day so I always drink whatever the special is, because I'm a broke college kid

The Swamp is by far one of my favorite bars. It has a very fun and inviting atmosphere. There is always a very diverse crowd in style and age. Love the live music and that they switch back and forth between the band and DJ. Have drink specials every night and outside of the specials their drinks are still fairly... More

Came down to visit some friends stationed here. The night started off slow. Had a couple drinks and appetizers at The Crab Trap. Stephen was our bartender and he recommended the Bacardi buckets! Good choice! Then he told us about The Swamp! Told us there was no cover for military! Big plus in my book! Got there early but as... More
