Gator Club



The Gator Club underwent an extensive renovation a few years ago to restore the building to its historic appearance.  The owner did a great job focusing on authenticity.  Originally called the Worth Block building, it's been in the heart of downtown since 1913.  Imagine if those old red brick walls could talk!  Now, not only is it a popular gathering place with live music, it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Wonderful old sign and its great that some people understand the value of restoring those places. and I bet the wall could tell us some great stories :-)

Nice shot, you got the neon good! Sounds like a neat place to go into and hang out.

What a pretty sign! Can't say I'm fond of the name of this place though--now a Seminole Club would be more like it!
