I have been to every bar on the beach and while each one has their own pros and cons, this one is by far my favorite! Staff is great, prices are spot on point and the views are to die for! Highly recommend stopping by!

You have to know it's here - but what a neat little spot for a drink! First off - it's kind of hidden behind Aloha Liquors - and it's a small little spot but it's Big fun. Just a place to unwind, talk to the...More

Lopaka (LP) owner Aloha bar is the "Best"! His "Shaka bar" is right behind the liquor store. A quaint little bar with so much charm! Echo the bartender makes the drinks personally! No mixes! We are locals and it's our favorite. Went sailing with "Captain...More

Austin gives a genuine friendly welcome to all, amidst a beautiful setting, surely no better spot to catch the serene sunset in Pensacola. Do yourself a favour & get involved.

First this bar has zero to do with the Sandshaker. Owned by a couple of local Hawaiian surfers, Shaka means Hang Loose. It's a tiny Tiki bar offering outstanding views and great drinks, where the 'real' locals hang, not the tourist trap! The "Shaker" is...More

No food, no bands, just an awesome little tiki bar hidden away. The staff is knowledgeable about the area and has local advice for tourists in addition to making a great margarita. And the view can't be beat!

First, the name was obviously chosen based on the popularity of the Sandshaker, which is known by regulars as the Shaker. This place has nothing going for it. About 100 feet away you will find the Shaker which draws big crowds and great bands. The...More
