Club Reports: Salty Rim, Barbarella

Salty Rim Bar & Grill is the name of the pool bar in the cottages area of the new Margaritaville Resort in Kissimmee.
During the day this is a busy hub of activity serving drinks and lunch to everyone enjoying their huge pool complex. As I arrived in early evening, they were already shutting down.
The front of the resort is home to Sunset Walk, home to the actual Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville restaurant and club as well as numerous shops and a movie theater. References to the famed ballad singer and his songs are located throughout.
There is a large traditional hotel at Margaritaville Resort but the cool place to stay is in the cottages located towards the rear. They range from 2 bedrooms to 6 bedrooms in Caribbean pastel 2-3 story buildings. These are for sale so you can purchase and live in them or rent them out.
Some homes even come with their own pool. We will be back to cover Margaritaville itself in the near future. Please note that the Margaritaville Restaurant at Universal CityWalk remains operational as a restaurant and gift shop but no live entertainment at this time.
By now you know…..Independent Bar is now Barbarella!
But just as it should be on a Saturday night, resident DJ Indie John (USA) in the perch!
While the name has changed, one thing hasn’t. Saturday nights are still 80’s New Wave. The club was packed!
Because everybody loves the 80’s!
Spotted at the bar: A surprise appearance from Tracy, seen here with Barbarella Lighting Tech Ernie.
Spotted again later on the dance platform! So great to see you out and about, Tracy!
Spotted in VIP: DJ Zack Lee (USA) with DeeDee from radio station 96.9 The Game.
Taking over after midnight, DJ Rob Bates (USA).
A lot of Indie John’s set was the well-known early 80’s MTV hits. Rob played those plus more of the darker songs of the era. Rob will be back next Saturday night too!
Dance floor stayed packed!
There was no reason for me to go anywhere else last night. Come check out Barbarella every Saturday night. A good time was had by all.
