Flora Bama Roadhouse on the FL AL Border

The Flora Bama roadhouse and lounge is just a short walk away. It was mostly destroyed in the last hurricane (2004 Ivan) and local lore says that while they have recently received their approvals to rebuild they are staying with the current hodgepodge of fixed and temporary "cover". The profits under the tent roof are as good as they were in the fixed building so why spend the money to rebuild...? It is said that the best bands play at the Flora-Bama and that one might be sitting next to Kid Rock in the bar on any given night. Other celebrities have their summer vacation homes on Ono Island - a gated island of multi-million dollar homes that we can see from the Playa Del Rio Marina side.
