Gulf Shores Hang Out Returns

Back in "the day", the 50's and 60's to be somewhat exact, my brother and all his friends spent their youth at "The Hang Out" in Gulf Shores (Alabama). I was just a little kid so I missed the fun of this cool establishment located right on the beach where the main road terminated. Oh but I heard about the stories and fun times at this legendary place. This icon went by the wayside quite a few years ago but the new version is back.

Recently I attended the Hang Out reunion (pretending to be a former patron) in the same location at the wonderful new venue of the same name. Giant photos on the walls depict the old look and I can attest that the modern version is amazing. With a 40 foot inside bar and seating for over 400 plus a couple of outside bars the opportunity to wine and dine with sights and sounds of the surf is unique. Located just a few steps from the public beach, at the corner of Hwy. 59 and Hwy. 180, this new entertainment-style restaurant boasts an outdoor bandstand and a giant pile of sand for the kids to explore.

Head to the beach soon and make The Hang Out one of your adventures. Meyer Real Estate can provide easy to rent accommodations in beach houses and condominiums for your trip.
