The Wicked Wheel Barn & Grill

“Wild Eyed and Southern Fried”

Panama City Beach, Florida might very well be the best beach this side of paradise – with 27 miles of stunning white sand, emerald green waters and surefire enjoyment in, on or under the water.

One thing for certain which they have and no one else has is The Wicked Wheel Bar and Grill (https://www.thewickedwheel.com). The Wicked Wheel is a custom themed bar and restaurant located near the beautiful beaches of Panama City Beach at 10025 Hutchison Boulevard.

The Wicked Wheel Barn and GrilleWhen William Buskell was looking for two buildings for The Wicked Wheel, he came to Hansen Pole Buildings’ Designer Rick Carr. The results were a 60’ x 120’ x 13’ pavilion with one foot open overhangs and a 16’ x 80’ fully enclosed building.

The smaller building features a single sloping roof (from 14’8” to 12’) with 12 inch open overhangs as well. It has a 12’ wide x 9’ tall wind rated Wayne Dalton sectional steel overhead door and five insulated commercial steel Plyco entry doors.

The Bright Red steel for both structures is Fabral’s Grand Rib III. The buildings were designed as Risk Category III buildings, under the Florida Building Code and are designed to withstand 140 mph (mile per hour) wind speeds.

The Barn at The Wicked Wheel is the perfect location to celebrate special events. The Barn is minimally decorated, allowing for personal creativity; whether looking for shabby chic, country charm or sophisticated elegance. Weddings, company meetings, family reunions, and holiday parties are all enjoyed in this rustic setting.

With state of the art audio/visual and kitchen equipment, on-site catering, full bar capabilities, a performance stage, and dance floor they are equipped to handle anything their patron’s imaginations can dream up. The Barn can accommodate up to 200, so whether planning and event small and intimate or large and professional, The Wicked Wheel experts are available to assist.

Every Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. cruise into The Barn at the Wicked Wheel for your Sunday Cruise. No matter your ride – hot rods, classic cars, motorcycles, jeeps or strollers – ALL wheels are welcome! Partake of an ice cold beer and a rockin’ country band from Willy’s. Live for you and your friends to enjoy!
