Saddlebags Bar: Savannah's New Spot for Country Atmosphere

There's a new bar and music venue on River Street bringing country music to Savannah.  The Saddlebags Bar fills what was once a variety gap in downtown Savannah's nightlife, giving our guests another great entertainment option during their vacation with us!

Co-owner Johnny Gosyne noticed that while there are country music concerts in Savannah that have fans packing the house.  But when it came to a place for them to go before and after a concert - not to mention any other time they wanted a country-western atmosphere - Savannah was severely lacking.  Enter Saddlebags Bar: a relaxed atmosphere that mixes a great bar, country line dancing, and (of all things) one of the largest selections of Bourbons in the area.

There is truly something for everyone at Saddlebags: Wednesday bike nights, free line-dancing lessons and line dancing events on Fridays, live music on Saturdays, a mechanical bull, and a calendar of special events that is always being updated!

While Saddlebags is more of a bar/entertainment venue than restaurant, they do have a limited menu of "Cowboy Food" including burgers, pulled-pork sandwiches, fried and blackened chicken, a decent variety of appetizers, and more!  Oh, and save room for an authentic Texas-born Fried Twinkie for dessert!

The signature drink list is impressive, and it doesn't look like it'll break the bank either.  And if you're visiting Savannah during the week of your birthday, we hear that if you go to Saddlebags on Friday night and show them your ID,  there's a "Birthday Bash" option featuring a free Bourbon Slush and a free Fried Twinkie!

Saddlebag's hours are perfect for our long-weekend visitors:
Wed - Fri:  4:00 pm - 3:00 am
Sat:  12:00 pm - 3:00 am
Sun:  12:00 pm - 2:00 am

So if you get a hankerin' for some country fun during your visit to our beautiful city, why not head to 317 West River Street, saddle up to the bar, order up some filling food and a signature drink, and maybe even try your hand at that bull or the line dancing?  Your Savannah innkeeper can give you directions and advice about your visit to Saddlebags... and will have your room ready for your return!

As always, we ask that you DO NOT DRINK AND DRIVE!  Your Savannah inn hosts do not want to see your visit ruined by the effects of irresponsible behavior.  PLEASE either designate your own responsible driver, or get a taxi for your ride back to your B and B.  Even better, walk back to your bed and breakfast!  The Romantic Inns of Savannah are within two miles of River Street!
