Tybee Island, 2010... The Return of Nickies Lounge!

Nickie Alexander's
1971 Bar & Grill

Welcome to the online home of Nickie's 1971 Restaurant and Lounge on Tybee Island, Ga. Nick Alexander built this building back in 1970 from the ground up, and in the following year opened Nickie's Lounge for business. Nick, as the founding owner and operator, established a successful, well beloved, and legendary gathering spot here on Tybee Island, which for the next 20 years was well known by locals and tourist alike as "Nickie's Lounge".

In about 1990, Nick sold the property, and for the next 21 years the building housed a variety of diverse businesses under various names, and changed hands numerous times, but few of their ventures ever lasted more than a single season or two.

So in the winter of 2010, at the age of 89 years old, Nick Alexander bought the property back, and along with an additional $100,000 of remodeling and reconstruction, he once again christened it with the name of which it was born; Nickie's..  And for this reprise, and in honor of it's original birth, Nick then elaborated and expanded that name to be Nickie's 1971.

The grand re-opening took place in October 2010, and once again this establishment has resumed in experiencing a strong insurgence of consistent and satisfied customers, who are provided a premium quality menu; with full service available to both the family diner in front, as well as to our casual, comfortably classed full service lounge located in the back.

Special Announcement!
On December 10, 2011, an impromptu party took place at the Tybee Island Gym in honor of Nickie Alexander, and in celebration his 90th birthday.
