Captiva, Florida: The Bubble Room (In Transition)

Way out of the way, but that's probably why a time machine like The Bubble Room has survived. Ample goofy photo opportunities, including a Tunnel of Love. Banged up by Hurricane Ian in 2022, but working to reopen.

Take road from Sanibel to the center of Captiva town. The restaurant is on right just past the stop sign, at Andy Rosse Lane.

The Bubble Room

We arrived too late for lunch at the Bubble Room, so we browsed around their shop across the street. Close to reopening for dinner, there was a line waiting. Surprised me. But we got a table and ordered. Everything was good. Afterwards we walked around the restaurant taking pictures.

Mad hatter Tea Party.

The Bubble Room

The Aquarium Room has walls and ceiling covered with celebrity photos, posters, an oversized Cracker Jack box, and more. The entrance/lobby has a loft area with an Alice-In-Wonderland tea party, featuring Alice and the Mad Hatter, along with tons of other kitsch items. Good food, but I stuck with the basics.

The Bubble Room

At The Bubble Room, the Christmas room is creepy -- fun and nostalgic.
