The Square Grouper sits on a strip of land jutting into the inlet that separates north Jupiter. Across the water is the Jupiter lighthouse, and out past the jetty is the open ocean. The bar itself is nothing more than a thatched-roof, open-air bar made from wood that likely washed ashore at some point. It's painted in multiple Caribbean themes. Plastic tables and chairs sit around the main bar area, which has a floor of white sand. Aside from the occasional rumble of boats and bikers pulling up to the place, you mostly just hear water lapping up on the sea wall. Alan Jackson used the Square Grouper as a backdrop for his "Its' Five O'Clock Somewhere" video. Love or hate that song, it's synonymous with happy hour, and so is the Square Grouper.
