I love being sun-drenched but I will never get used to the coast being sunny and dry. I’d like my lawn to be green…not crispy, thank you very much!

Back to speaking of friends and family…Scottie’s Lounge in Freeport officially opened with a bang on Wednesday June 29th. I dare you to go for an hour and not have fun! Scottie’s is the friendly neighborhood bar we’ve all been waiting for…where everybody knows your name…your mother’s name…your grandmother’s name, etc. It’s a hip, shorts and sandals, great tunes on the junkebox (from Hank Williams to Michael Jackson and everything in-between) kind of hang-out. And hang out you will…whether it’s inside at the lively bar, playing pool or relaxing in the cool Gulf breeze on the patio (yes…the patio is shaded and comfy)! You’ll never know who’ll drop in at Scottie’s.
Scottie’s was originally “Shorty’s” and has undergone ownership changes throughout it’s history. The current Captains are Kenny Kouches and Mike Jones; no strangers to the Freeport business scene (formerly of the Port Cafe). Everyone has memories and maybe even a story or two about Scotties; I belly-laughed listening to tales about life long friends last weekend and am eagerly anticipating spending lots of happy hours at Scottie’s (pun intended)!
Pictures speak louder than words - these scream”Welcome”! Special note: the interior walls (and exterior door) are planked with wood salvaged from a fence that Kenny’s father built at his childhood home. There’s other fun ‘stuff’, too - Keywest style – where humor and the sea go hand in hand.
Have fun at Scottie’s – I’ll see you there!
Aye Matie…Welcome to Scottie’s!
The Usual, Please!
My Fave Spot!
Isn’t this clever?!

See you soon at Scottie’s!
Drop in at The Venue for live music entertainment, too! It’s half a block from Scottie’s and has great bands, roomy dancefloor, full bar, plenty of seating and the best ‘sound’ around. If you can’t have fun at Scotties and The Venue…I need to call an ambulance
