About The Bowery

THE BOWERY – The 8th Wonder of the World!

Established in 1944, THE BOWERY has been entertaining millions of patrons from around the world! We offer genuine southern hospitality while live bands play requests  and waiters serve ice-cold beer by the fist-full.

Our house band from 1973 -1980 was Country Supergroup ALABAMA. Band members often drop in to visit with old friends, and in 2013 returned to our stage to play for fans and family kicking off their “Back To The Bowery!” Reunion Tour.

DUFFY’S TAVERN at THE BOWERY serves ice cold drinks and great food, click the link below to view our menu.

We pride ourselves on being pretty much the same, year to year, decade to decade, which sustains its popularity, and helps it live up to its motto Ya’ Can’t Beat Fun!

We have a lot of history, some of our memories include amazing characters who’s can’t be forgotten. “Scuba” Osborne holds the record carrying 34 mugs without a tray! Over the years our featured performers included April May who danced on the ceiling, Bouncin’ Betty  “The 300 Pound Go-Go-Girl,” Count Desmond the world famous sword swallower, and “Don’t Cry Joe” Shotkus who poured beer at THE BOWERY from the day it opened until he passed in 1997. In the 1930’s Joe and his sister Mary set a marathon dancing record of 5,295 hours (7 months, 10 days, 15 hours) that still stands. In his younger days Joe delighted Bowery audiences by being packed in a coffin full of ice for as long as an hour.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of Jeff Cook, founding member of legendary band Alabama. Jeff passed away on Monday at his home in Destin, Florida, at the age of 73. He was surrounded by family and close friends.
Cook was a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame, Musicians Hall of Fame, Fiddlers Hall of Fame and Gibson’s Guitarist of the Year.
Cook formed Alabama along with cousins Teddy Gentry and Randy Owen. After six years of hard work, the band earned a record deal and the rest was history. Alabama became one of the most successful acts in country music history, selling more than 80 million albums and charting 43 No. 1 hits. Their iconic hits include “Song of the South,” “Dixieland Delight,” “I’m in a Hurry (And Don’t Know Why),” “Mountain Music,” “Take Me Down,” “Feels So Right,” “If You’re Gonna Play in Texas (You Gotta Have a Fiddle in the Band),” and many more.
Alabama was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 2005. Cook’s technical skill was an integral part of their success. The accomplished musician could play piano, guitar, fiddle, bass guitar, banjo, mandolin, and more. He is credited for introducing the electric double neck guitar to country music.
Jeffrey Alan Cook, we will always be thankful for the over 50 years of memories.
