With a name like The Palace, the oldest bar in Florida is nothing luxurious, but it does offer a darn good time.
Open since 1903, the bar in Amelia Island’s historic downtown has many fascinating stories to tell. It survived the Prohibition Era “by selling Texaco gasoline, ice cream, special wines, 3 percent near-beer and cigars.”
It offers typical bar fare, but the live music, revelers and elegant early-1900s furnishings provide an appealing ambiance to stop for a break over a whiskey or beer. It’s also located just minutes from one of Florida’s best beaches on Amelia Island.
