    This will be my 4th time heading to the Ozarks with a group of college friends. This year since we have grown bored of party cove, we arent getting a boat. We have decided to do a pub crawl on the Saturday we are there. What are some good bars we should hit up, wouldn't mind some personal stories since you can't really trust websites for what a bars atmosphere is like. We stay at Captian Rons in sunrise beach. So that would be our starting location. Thanks in advance for any help with our adventure.

    Cheers

    You should still get a boat. Driving to different bars will take forever. Much faster, and more enjoyable, by boat.

    Just got back yesterday. I go down about 8 times a summer and have a condo and a boat. Hit up frankie and louies about anytime and it's good. Coconuts is a great daytime bar. Especially if you like eye candy. Lazy gators is also a pretty good daytime bar and has lots of eye candy. It's a little more deuchbaggy though. Toad cove at night is a pretty good spot. Topsider used to be really good but I am not sure anymore. I am getting a little old for that bar.

    that's impressive since those some of those places are pretty far apart by boat. what kind of boat do you have?

    I'll put a vote in for Paradise.

    We typically stay around mile 7, so kind of in the middle of them, typically head one way one day, and another way another day. Crownline.

    We had a boat last year took us an hour to get to Osage by water. Since we have a large group can only travel by pontoon boat. Slow driving

    My condo is on 7 mile mark. Condo's are called Millstone. BTW Coconuts hires umm adult dancers to just come sun bathe by the pool. THey don't pay them. Just give them free drinks. Last time we went there were about 20 of them. There also about another 25 or so that were even better looking. So if you are married, wear sunglasses and have your head on a swivel.
