Did you know that in 1933 when prohibition ended, our government gave out liquor licenses allowing no more than 85 persons in any bar, regardless of their occupancy load? This is the origin of the expression “86” which is still widely used in today’s service industry.
On your next visit to Ocean’s Reach, be sure to check out “The 86 Room,” a retro speakeasy in the Historic District of downtown Fort Myers.
They invite you to step back in time, relax, drink, and celebrate! Happy days are here again!
