Old Hickory Whiskey Bar is named after the 7th U.S. President Andrew Jackson, the first Territorial Governor of Florida. He was imperative to Florida becoming part of the United States in 1821, when he hoisted the American flag over Florida Territory for the first time in Plaza Ferdinand. His residence while in Pensacola was actually located just across the street on the corner of Intendencia Street and Palafox Place. Integrating local history into an entertaining experience for patrons is, and will always be, the vision for Old Hickory.
Old Hickory is owned by Pensacola native & Historic Preservationist, Katie Garrett.
