Good morning!
Yesterday morning as I was writing the Daily Rundown, The Red Bar in Grayton Beach was burning. In a matter of 90 minutes, the iconic destination was in ashes.
While the South Walton Fire District crews were able to contain the fire to the Red Bar, strong winds made it difficult to fight, according to the Walton Sun.
“Unfortunately the Red Bar sustained heavy fire damage and is now a total loss. No injuries were reported,” the district said.
Red Bar co-owner Oliver “Oli” Petit was quoted by the Sun saying,
“On behalf of my family and the staff of The Red Bar, I want to thank the community for the tremendous outpouring of support that we have already received. It means a lot to me that we live in a county where our leaders recognize the importance of our shared history, and the efforts so many of us make to shape our community in a positive and unique way.
I want to tell our patrons and my staff that we will be back, and we will rebuild to the exact previous specifications – maybe with a better bathroom. Life goes on.”
As video and images of The Red Bar made their way through social media yesterday, patrons from all over began sharing their favorite memories.
Over to you! Did you ever go to The Red Bar?
