Brevard Live February 2015 by Charlene Hemmle
The Little Bar That Could …And Did!
It’s hard to believe that it has been 10 years since The Sandbar Sports Grill in Cocoa Beach first opened its doors. What’s not hard to believe is that they have grown into a consistent hotspot where people come together for beach fun, great entertainment, live music and of course, food!
Along with special events, UFC fights, sports of all kinds and delicious daily specials, the action is never lacking. This month is no exception with a “White Trash Bash” and UFC fight on February 28th and a “Fat Tuesday” party on February 17th with half priced beers and hurricanes all day. One favored event right around the corner is “King of the Couch”, a friendly competition before the Superbowl for supreme reign over the “best seat in the house” complete with food, beer & room for friends.
Owners Drew Bunin and Mark Phelps spare no expense to have some sort of thrilling event planned for each and every month of the year and live music almost every day. From Dubstep to Dub Massive, Sandbar-o-ween to Sandbarapalooza and everything in between no wonder it is an epicenter for fun loving folks, They have a famous 5 lb. burrito eating contest on Cinco de Mayo and all you can drink for $20 during Okto-beer-fest. There is a-groovy island jive with live reggae music every Friday, cool rock and roll on Saturdays and casual acoustic music most other days.
The Sandbar Sports Grill is an “all purpose” restaurant/bar. Meaning it’s a place you can have a casual lunch with the boss, a pizza dinner with the kids or enjoy a late night cocktail and dancing with a date. They have a varied menu with anything from sweet crab legs to handmade pizzas to glorious fish tacos. The weekly specials never change because they are such good deals like 1/2 price tacos & draft on Tuesdays or free wings with every pitcher on Wednesdays.
On Saturday February 21st the Sandbar will host a 10 Year Anniversary Party that will salute the hard work of their staff and the dedication of their customers. It will be an extra special day of celebration and brotherhood among many commendable people. The all day event will include all day live music and many terrific $10 specials on food, drinks and merchandise. 321-799-2577
