Elevated Dining at Bitter End


A true sailor’s haunt, The Clubhouse was built by Bitter End’s first proprietor, Basil Symonette, as a spot for yachtsmen to stop by for a strong drink and a quick meal. An eccentric sailor himself, Basil constructed it from the wreck of Huey Long’s splendid yacht, Ondine; the yacht’s mainmast was the primary center post of the structure. Today, The Clubhouse is still the place to enjoy a great meal with kindred spirits from across the globe. Our open-air dining room is a stunning blend of tropical and nautical elements surrounded by outdoor seating. From here, you can take in breathtaking views of the North Sound and soak in the ambiance of Bitter End.

CIRCA 1969

When it opened in 1969, The Clubhouse quickly became famous as the first bar in the North Sound. Back then, if visitors  came for dinner, they were required to approach a long wooden pier and sound their boat’s air horn. If Basil felt sociable, he would respond by megaphone, and the visitor would be allowed to come ashore. The evening would last until Basil would abruptly decide it was time for lights out–and shut down the generator.
