The Hangout at Gulf Shores Beach

The Hangout was the name of the facility in the same area back in the late 1950's and early 1960's here in Gulf Shores. This 17,000 sq.ft.  new entertainment complex on 2.5 acres has a restaurant that can seat 350 and has 3 outdoor outdoor bars, a 50 foot tower with a large movie screen and an outdoor stage for entertainment in the outdoor lounge area.

It is great to be eating on the beach with the Gulf breezes coming into the open-air dining room. 

Memorabilia from earlier Hangout customers, photographs of past beach days, and local artists' works adorn the walls. The outside patio and entertainment area features plenty of sand, and picnic tables, plus a fire pit and a huge playground.

The building's exterior has a beach look with cypress wood walls. The outdoor decks feature bleached pine, and the parking is a mix of asphalt and crushed shells.

The visitors to our beautiful Gulf Shores Public Beach will really enjoy everything The Hangout has to offer. Easy entry is up spacious ramps into the open interior with fabo views of the Gulf. Along with areas like the bar for adults there are play areas for children. at 101 East Beach Blvd. Located at Alabama Hwy 59 & U.S. 182.

This outside area, the part nearest to the Beach Highway, has lots of room for seating and both an outdoor movie screen and a stage for musical acts. There are three outdoor bars altogether. 


An outdoor fire pit has seating all around. My guess is that by summer they will need a full time staff member to keep the kids from throwing fun stuff like combustible leaves and each other into the flames. Muscle men are welcome to display their marvelous physique at The Hangout !

When the kitchen gets backed up, the wait-staff jumps into action, doing a distracting little ?surfer?dance on the tabletops.

A 25-foot steel fan in the center of the main restaurant building keeps the interior air moving.

Large, automated, roll-up roll-up garage door type windows overlook the water, and all the seating is designed to give everyone a water view..

If you have children, sit at one of these tables and let your kids play in the sand pile area while you keep an eye on them.  The Long bar looks out towards the Gulf thru the open walls.
