Happy Birthday Rosie O’Grady’s! The Grand Dame of Downtown Pensacola Entertainment turns 50!

Friday, August 11, 2017 and continues through Monday, August 21, 2017.

Come celebrate the founding of the Gulf Coast’s Entertainment Destination, Seville Quarter. Rosie O’Grady will be turning 50 and the party is going to be incredible! After five decades of shaping Pensacola’s night life, Rosie O’Grady and Seville Quarter will host a fantastic 50th Birthday Bash, and we want YOU to come celebrate with us!


Seville Quarter began in August of 1967 as a dream of the multifaceted Bob Snow, a Naval pilot from Minnesota, entrepreneur, Dixieland bandleader, designer, and virtuoso trumpet player. Wilmer Mitchell, Snow’s long-time attorney and personal friend, accepted the reigns from Snow, and has continued to operate the complex with his wife Neddy, and their seven children. Special thanks to Bob Snow for opening this grand establishment, and to the Mitchell Family for keeping her shining over the years.
