Red Bar Returns: Iconic 30A Landmark Breaks Ground to Rise from the Ashes!

The Groundbreaking Ceremony of the new Red Bar

Almost eight months after the iconic Grayton Beach landmark burned to the ground, shovels hit the dirt at the official groundbreaking ceremony in November 2019.

Owner Louis Petit poured the original Red Bar’s ashes at the rebuild site, marking new beginnings in an inspiring, phoenix-like rising, even as friends, family and the local community cheered on members of the Petit family!
