Rookies Sports Bar – Stuart, Florida

Mar 5, 2010 | Landscapes & Scenery

Rookies Sports Bar is located right next to Bubba’s Fish Camp. Just like Bubba’s Fish Camp, Rookies is also closed. Must not be a great area for restaurants. This building has the same old abandoned look to it as well. I love all the textures of the aged metal and molded paint. There is something about decay that adds so much character to a building. To bad Florida has a lack of decaying buildings or else I’d be posting more of these types of photographs.
