THE O'BRICKS STORY
A LITTLE BIT O' HISTORY
Our bar, grill, and banquet room are housed in two of downtown Bradenton's oldest structures - and the history and spirit of our buildings inspires us every day.
With a such a beautiful modern interior, it's hard to believe that the two buildings occupied by O'bricks actually date back to the turn of the century. The Bar at O'bricks occupies space in the old Juplinor Hotel, and the adjoining Grill and Banquet Room reside in the Anderson-Finkham Building, which since its construction in 1901 has undergone several renovations.
O'bricks was carefully crafted to pay homage to downtown Bradenton's charm and heritage, with a nod to the tropics, too. All of the wood (doors, tables, accents) you see was personally selected by our team and hand-carved in Costa Rica. This blend of modern, exotic, and historic reflects the unique cosmopolitan feel of O'bricks, Bradenton's favorite gathering place.
