Relaxing on the Gulf with Cocktails and Sushi at the Gathering Spot

I'm going to let you in on a little secret; a comfortable SoWal spot where you can meet your friends for a drink, excellent food and amazing sushi. And it's quite affordable, considering it's in a beautiful setting right on the Gulf, flanked by massive dunes. You can lounge inside on cushy chairs around cocktail tables, or outside around the pool by a toasty fire.
