Sandy Beach in Florida

A September 2006 trip to Pensacola by Emily May

Quote: Pensacola is both a surprise and a disappointment. Take a look at the restaurants, culture, beach, and more.

McGuire's Irish Pub

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant | "McGuire's Irish Pub and Brewery"

Quote:
McGuire’s is the quintessential American "Irish pub." Its claim to fame is the $500,000 in signed $1 bills serving as wall and ceiling paper, and its hundred or so signed bras decorating the bar area. Live music can be heard nightly, and at times its an actual Irishman. If you’ve ever been to an Irish pub, you know what kind of music. The more alcohol you have, the more fun it is to sign along to the Crocodile song or request your own Irish or oldie favorite. A pleasant mix of Irish and American food, McGuire’s offers fare for the unadventurous. You can get a good steak, a good plate of fried jumbo shrimp, and an excellent Shepard’s pie. All of the food is reasonably priced for this type of atmosp...Read More

The surf can vary from calm to light, and rough in times of hurricanes. Nothing more than a body board for the maybe 3- to 4-foot waves on occasion. In the springtime, the algae moves in just as the weather gets warmer. I’m told this is why the area is called the "Emerald Coast." It’s not harmful, just a little bit gross. ...Read More

Seville Quarter

Attraction | "Going Out? Seville Quarter"

Quote:
If you’re "going out" in Pensacola you will probably end up at Seville Quarter. There are only a few places to go in the city and the largest and most widely attractive is Seville Quarter. A pseudo-new Orleans feel, at least in decoration, greets you as you walk through the door, but don’t expect Jazz, at least on Friday and Saturday. Throughout the week, Seville’s hosts theme/activity nights in their different rooms. Monday’s Trivial in one and Salsa in another. A combination nightclub, piano bar, outdoor courtyard, pool, and many other activities, Seville Quarter is a five room extravaganza that attempts to meet all of the needs of Pensacolians in one place. The nightclub/ dance floor plays a mixtur...Read More
