Baltimore Sun’s BEST party in 2 weeks

#121 Flora-Bama Lounge and Package (Perdido Key, Florida)

Opened in October 1964, the Flora-Bama Lounge and Package is a Gulf-front oyster bar, beach bar, and Florida Gulf Coast cultural landmark immortalized in songs by Jimmy Buffet, Kenny Chesney, Blake Shelton, Chris Young, and Jason Aldean. The honky-tonk roadhouse sits on the beach where Orange Beach, Alabama meets Perdido Key, Florida. There are three different live music stages and 12 bars adorned with memorabilia and scribbled names and notes — management encourages bar patrons to add graffiti to the walls. The bar is equally famous for its annual Interstate Mullet Toss and Gulf Coast's Greatest Beach Party, a fish toss across the state line held the last full weekend every year in (this year April 26-28, 2019), and for its signature Bushwacker, a locally popular, boozy, frozen milkshake-like concoction topped with a cherry.
