Barrel & Bale at Grassy Flats Resort & Beach Club
Olde Florida and the Conch Republic share a storied history ripe with controversy and folklore. From the earliest inhabitants of local Indians and the Spanish settlers who discovered them to the last century’s boom of industrialists, smugglers, and tourism vendors, the stories are as interesting as the characters who lived them. In modern times, Grassy Flats is more likely to find a turtle coming ashore to lay its eggs, but mere decades ago, "square grouper" was a regular find. Smugglers made up the majority of the local Keys community that had yet to experience the Florida Tourism boom.
Barrel & Bale is a celebration of those unique characters who survived off the sea and the things they carried across it. We pride ourselves on unique and delicious cocktails and tropical drinks, craft beers, wines, and refreshing spritzes. The only thing to rival the quality would be the oceanfront ambiance.
