Shorty's Place

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

Stop in here a couple times a week for a cold beer and lunch sometimes. New menu items are good and priced reasonable. Usually a friendly dog or two around outside and some interesting characters hang out there.

This is a fun and lively bar. Stopped in for drinks on a Saturday night and listened to some great live music and friendly conversation. I simply like hanging out in this kind of bar! It makes for a FUN night with reasonable prices.
