Palace Saloon




The Palace Saloon is the oldest bar in Florida and is guarded by a cranky old pirate who makes Captain Kidd look like a choirboy! It is located on the main drag in historic Amelia Island.

A great choice for B&W. I love the ghost signs!

The place sounds very interesting. According to its website, it has a 40-foot bar lit with gas lamps.

Would that be Long John Silver? If so, I'd advise him that the missing rum can be tracked down to my idiot-ex-brother-in-law.

Now that looks like a fun place!

That is a crusty old pirate. Your b&w photo is great. Looks like it could have been taken many decades ago.

He does look a bit crusty. We have an establishment here called the Palace Saloon, but it's not nearly as old as this one!

Aye, aye he's a fearsome old guardian of the pub. Always love to see the ghost signs.
P.s. comments showing now ☺☺

I absolutely love these photos, Lowell!

Adore pirate stories. One I particularly enjoy is Pierre Laffite in New Orleans.

A pirate, a ghost sign for a saloon, and a ghost sign for Coca Cola. Something seems a little contradictory here, doesn't it?

Looks interesting how old is it?

The pirate looks angry but I'm sure he would be happy if you stepped inside.

What a contrast between the pub you show here and the pub I used Tuesday in Coventry :).
