An iconic bar in Fairhope is making a big move, although a small distance: outside of downtown. So, as we go into the last week of FlyBar and Dragonfly FoodBar’s tenure in downtown Fairhope, we’ll tell you all about the move – and the new restaurant.

A final hurrah

The team at FlyBar announced the move at the end of January, many of us had the same question: why? The Church Street location is iconic & very central to the hubbub of downtown. Owner Brie Kerr says the rent is just too high to remain downtown – but that the relocation should ultimately be great for business.

Although it wasn’t a decision we made by choice, we are so excited with our new location. We have tons of parking, more eating inside and out, and the opportunity to expand our menu…”

The team is packing up and moving to a new location on South Section Street – but before that, a huge Saint Patrick’s Day Party!

Here are the details:

The new location

FlyBar is only moving a short 1.7 miles away from its current location. The new address is 18874 Section Street, in the Ahi Seafood Market. The Kerrs aren’t sure yet when they will be open at the Section Street location, but we will update you right here on The Bama Buzz when they do.

If you can’t get enough FlyBar, their Daphne location, Dragonfly Tavern, will be operating normally during the transition:

  • Dragonfly Tavern
    • Address: 1800 Main St, Daphne, AL 36526
    • Hours: Monday – Saturday: 11AM-9PM
    • More info: Facebook
