This might be Clearwater Beach's best kept secret. The small strip mall dive on the far north end of Clearwater Beach sits close to a few motels that have survived the condo invasion and provides the perfect after-sunset spot to chill with a cheap pitcher of beer. The dim, shanty-like atmosphere boasts kitschy decor in the way of wicker-covered lamps, pylon fixtures, plastic fish, lighthouse sculptures and netting. A separate game room offers two pool tables, sports electronic games and a widescreen TV. In the main bar area, a long, polished oak counter stretches along the lefthand wall with a jukebox, pay phone and cozy square booth at the front. On the right, tall and roomy booths divided by thick slabs of wood feature tables with checkers games.
