The Square Grouper – The Best Watering Hole In Jupiter

I came across this video on YouTube.  The Square Grouper is one of the most popular places in Jupiter for people of all drinking ages.  It has caught the attention of a few high profile celebrities.  Alan Jackson has been known to give surprise concerts on occasion, he’s even recorded a video there.  Kid Rock has also been known to frequent the bar as well.  What makes this place so popular?  Alcohol helps, but the view from here is the best in the area.  Sit down, have a beer and enjoy the view of the Jupiter Inlet and drift away.  You wont want to leave.  It doesn’t get any better than this!
