Savannah’s Original Pub
Two of Savannah’s most respected citizens stopping by Savannah’s Original Pub for a brew or two. formally
known as Pinkie Masters. The Original is at the corner of Dayton and East Harris St.
Pinkie Masters Lounge known as Savannah’s most popular dive bar occupied 318 Drayton St.
for 62 years until the owner was told to vacate the premise, thus, Savannah’s Original Pub popped up.
The new owner “long time manager of The Sapphire Grill” Matt Garappolo reopened the pub under it’s new name the Original shortly after Pinkie’s closed.
Pinkie’s was at one time a hot spot for politics here in Savannah. The most notable politician to visit Pinkies was President Jimmy Carter. On Saint Patrick’s day in 1978 President Carter stopped by Pinkie’s and climbed atop the bar and delivered a brief speech paying tribute to Masters.
I have been asked if the building is haunted, I tell them there is plenty of spirits and probably a few ghost, especially in Savannah’s Original Pub. Join my Creepy Crawl haunted pub crawl
