Our History

The original Playmore Tiki Bar was built during World War II. The building sat behind the first beach school and served as a lunch room and eventually a spare classroom. The school was closed in 1948 and the lunch room building was moved to this site. It opened in the early 1950’s as The Playmore and it was the first and only public place for adults to socialize on Ft. Myers Beach.


Our goal is to keep with the early traditions of The Playmore, a fun gathering place with a phenomenal view. You can sit back and relax, watching the fishermen on the pier or the dolphins playing in the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Let’s not forget, our white sandy beach and the world renowned sunsets. We have added great food and of course your favorite libations with live entertainment for a complete Ft. Myers Beach experience. We cordially invite you to come and enjoy all we have to offer to create fond lasting memories as our fore fathers have done in the past.
