ICONIC ‘POOL BAR’ JIM SHOWCASES BUSINESS SAVVY

Frozen Assets

Don’t let Jim “Pool Bar Jim” Lisenby’s laid-back demeanor and permanent smile fool you: behind the ever-present Hawaiian shirt beats the heart of a businessman. It’s just that for the last 40-plus years, his business has been good times and fuzzy memories that last a lifetime. 

And you’d best believe business is good. In one week this past June, 35 gallons of Lava Flow slaked the thirst of thousands of locals, and Lisenby said Pool Bar Jim’s likely sold more Painkillers than any other bar in the state.

I am a firm believer that a wedding wine should be equally as beautiful on your palate as in the bottle, especially at an event the is so highly photographed. Here are a few of my favorite wedding selections for the big day of or any of the events leading up to it.
