“Bloody Mary Capital of the Eastern Shore”
Neat antiques & Great food in a fun place! Come on down to Manci's Antique Club, the 'Bloody Mary Capital of the Eastern Shore' in Olde Towne Daphne, Alabama! Become part of the old South. Tradition and time have made us what we are today - good food, drinks and conversation in a relaxing warm Southern atmosphere. An experience you will cherish and remember forever. It is doubtful that Italian immigrant Frank Manci could have envisioned such a mutation as Manci's Antique Club when he purchased, in 1924, an old wooden produce warehouse in what is now downtown Daphne. In 1924 Frank built a gasoline station on this site.In 1947, Frank's son Arthur, at one time the Mayor of Daphne, took over the business. For some unknown reason Arthur, after obtaining a liquor license in 1967, started to hand bottles and various items on the walls of the now full fledged bar. Today the establishment holds the largest collection of Jim Beam decanters on display. In 1987 Alex Manci, Arthur's son, took the club over.He holds the title for the "Bloody Mary Capital of the Eastern Shore."In 1995 Alex and his wife Gwen started serving food in the club, which serves the Best Seafood Po-Boys (which were featured in Southern Living and Coastal Living magazines as well as Diners, Drivins & Dives) and Burgers near and far.
We were really looking forward to stopping here on our way to Panama City beach.... They do not open at 11 as stated here. They open at 3:30 !! Looks like it would have verbs cool place and our mouths were watering anticipating a blood MARY! Maybe next time!?
