Seville Quarter

Seville Quarter is proud to be the Gulf Coast’s Entertainment Destination since 1967. They’ve got a rich history dating back over five decades, when Bob Snow took a dilapidated 19th century warehouse on East Government Street and transformed it into “Rosie O’Grady’s Warehouse,” a beer-and-peanuts saloon offering up heaping portions of Dixieland jazz and good times.

Since then, Seville Quarter has grown to include seven rooms — the original Rosie O’Grady’s, Phineas Phogg’s, Lili Marlene’s, Apple Annie’s, Fast Eddie’s, End o’ the Alley and Palace Café — each with its own theme and atmosphere.

There’s also the Seville Party Plaza, an outdoor concert venue, and Heritage Hall, a spacious banquet and event facility”

Pensacola Beach—known for sugar white sand, clear blue water—and Bushwackers!!! Indeed, the tales run rampant of tourists from afar who have journeyed to our beach, lured only by the (almost) world renowned Sandshaker Bushwacker.

The Bushwacker has been the signature drink of the Sandshaker (a.k.a. “Shaker” and “Home of the Original Bushwacker”) for over 30 years.  The Shaker began selling Bushwackers in 1975 and since that time, this rich, creamy, chocolatey concoction continues to be the top selling drink at the Shaker.
