“Floating river bar paradise”

*Temporarily closed indefinitely starting on October 19, 2019 for renovation.* If you're looking for an escape, look no further than the Ludlow Bromley Yacht Club.  This floating oasis is several barges tied together with a giant bar running down the middle.  It's cash only, but there is an ATM on board.  Young and old will feel like they're floating on the bayou at this one of a kind destination. In addition to the awesome atmosphere, you'll find live music most weekends.  If the weather is still a little cold, don't worry... They have another bar called the Lagoon Saloon for the wintertime blues.

People watching and booze. Bring the cash and a DD, cause someone's bound to get "Watch me run to the end of the boat dock and back in 10 seconds!" drunk and will need a ride home.

This place is awesome. A floating barge out on the river with heaps of outdoor seating, awesome river views and mega kitschy island decor. A totally unpretentious fun spot that is one of my favorites in the area! :)

"Try the Poppers. They're not very good but you'll love them," a friend told me on the way to the bar for my first time. That pretty much sums this place up. Nothing is amazing but you can't help but love it. The decor is pleasantly cheesy and though it's island themed you're not quite sure which island nation they're striving for. It's an awesome Jimmy Buffet bar for people who don't like Jimmy Buffet. Super relaxed, party atmosphere.

Plenty of outdoor space, right on the river to drink some beers, eat some grub, chew the rag, and feel the breeze. One thing to remember is they're cash only. Also, contains perhaps one of the few remaining men's restrooms with a trough if that happens to be your thing.

Great views of the river. Good brews and bar food available as needed, but really you can admit it, it's just a nice place to hang out for awhile.

I did not see any actual yachts.

Second to none, my favorite spot on the river, north AND south of the river. Nice relaxed atmosphere, delicious ribs on Thursday nights, the opposite of pretentious, and just a fun place to go enjoy nice weather with a group of friends.

this place offers the best outdoor bar environment in the area. they'll always be a good crowd if the weather is nice and the people watching is second to none. they don't take plastic so make sure you bring cash!

couldn't agree more with jim-in-america, this place is epic. so low-key and unassuming, great place to go if you want to get drunk, cheap. Really hard not to have a great time at LBYC

This place was struck by a barge and destroyed in 2019. It's closed with no indication it will be relaunching any time soon.

LBYC. A place to go to have a decent time. It's definitely entertaining and if the weather is warm, it's super nice to just be out by the water. If you have a boat, it's even better!
