(Downtown, Tybee Island, GA)

Scooter’s 868th bar, first visited in 2011.

Wind Rose Cafe, Tybee Island

From the outside, all appearances are that this is a quaint and charming cafe, possibly not even having a real bar but just serving beer at the tables with your meals. So I was shocked to step inside and find a genuine good old dirty dive bar.

The place was pretty busy when we stepped inside, but we found a couple of empty stools at the far end of the bar.

Suddenly, a moment after we got our beers, the entire place cleared out. I mean, every single person in the place got up and filed out all at once, including the bartender! For a few minutes we were completely alone in there, dumbfounded. Finally, the bartender returned. We theorized later that everyone had gone out to check out somebody’s new ride.

Now, this place is also a cafe and does serve food, but we didn’t look at the menu.
