Pinkie Master’s Lounge
Let’s be honest here. Pinkie Master’s Lounge is great, but it’s not the kind of bar you’re going to take home and introduce to your parents. You won’t be taking Pinkie Master’s to the Olive Garden for an awkward first date, and you would never conceive of one day marrying it. Pinkie Master’s just isn’t that kind of bar. But on those late weekend nights, after respectable joints have closed up, and you’re not yet ready for bed… still looking for a good time… Pinkie Master’s knows what ya wants. Pinkie Master’s got what ya needs.
On Drayton Street, Pinkie Master’s is an institution in Savannah — the ultimate dive bar. Pinkie Master was actually the owner’s real name. He was friends with Jimmy Carter, who supposedly announced his intention to run for president in the bar. That’s more legend than fact, but Pinkie Master’s has the vibe, and smell, of a place which has seen a lot of history.
We’ve been a few times, and have always had a blast. Pinkie Master’s boasts the craziest, most eclectic crowd in Savannah. I’ve gotten into more random, hilarious conversations there than in any other bar, and there’s something bizarre everywhere you look. Hey, drunk-guy palm reader: me next! Hey, creepy old guy with silent, teenage Asian girlfriend: nice catch! Hey bartender: two more PBRs for me and my new buddy Oskari from Finland! Let’s play darts, Oskari! Haha, this jukebox is AWESOME!
That’s basically how a night at Pinkie Master’s goes. It’s not for prudes, and definitely not for anyone sensitive to cigarette smoke, but if you’re looking for a great dive with cheap beer and fun people, you can’t go wrong at Pinkie’s.
