The Gathering Spot

The Gathering Spot at WaterColor Inn is the beloved, family-friendly lobby bar and lounge located on the first floor of the AAA Four Diamond and Forbes Four-Star rated WaterColor Inn, a St. Joe Hospitality property. 

Beginning at 9 a.m., guests can enjoy a casual, grab-and-go “Food for Fuel” menu with healthy, light and energy-boosting ready-to-go treats- perfect for your beach day ahead or to hold you over in between meals.  In addition, the restaurant will continue to offer the same great handhelds and shareable plates it has been known for –  including Truffle Fries, a guest favorite. As the evening sets, order a cocktail and relax by our poolside firepits, as you enjoy the sounds of the Gulf.

The Gathering Spot features local, live music Saturday evenings during season. Follow WaterColor Inn & Resort on Facebook for music announcements, happy hour details, and special events. 

The Gathering Spot is an inviting South Walton gem for gathering with friends in a laid-back lounge setting. Open to the public; reservations are not accepted. Free valet parking for all guests. Visit to see menus and more.
