Great bar (no food) to hang out. Lots of locals and friendly people. Bartenders are good with good hand on the drinks and generous pours. Excellent selection of all alcohol and really reasonable prices. Older crowd early and younger as the night progresses.

If you are looking for a local bar and experience what Pensacola is about in the downtown area, then Intermission is your bar. The bartenders are friendly and the location is amazing. Your cocktail will be strong and well-made with a nice price. It's an older crowd earlier in the night and then changes to a mid to late twenties... More

We passed through Intermission on a night of barhopping and found it quite enjoyable. The crowd seemed to have a good vibe going and the staff was pleasant.

A great low key bar with great selection and boundless bar space combined with its perfectly perched location makes it ideal for a place to stop between palafox and somewhere more south such as the Pensacola Brewery, Atlas, or Seville.

Talk about a neighborhood place in downtown Pensacola, this is it. Best owners, best staff, like walking back in time to a local "Cheers". Mike and his dad make everyone feel like "Norm" Price is right, smoke free, and super friendly. Wish I could get there more often. Richard Hahner

Even if you are a local they don't care. The bartenders are a mixed bag as some are great and some just are rude. If it's a weekend night, then it is like a sardine can and just too crowded. Just too many idiots hanging out in here too!

Always a fun place to stop on the usual weekend bar crawl. They no longer allow smoking, which is GREAT. 3 different "bars", which are great for people watching. Always entertaining!

Just seemed to me like a typical downtown bar scene. Quite crowded, quite loud. The great thing is that their drinks aren't watered down at all and there's no cover. When I say crowded, I mean, it was almost impassable and uncomfortably crowded. The scene is mostly mid-20 year olds, many of whom are a mix between locals and student... More

Cool older building, great barstaff and music, well-maintained foosball table, pool table. Serves a fantastic Huckleberry shot. If you're out for the night, it has to be on the list.
