I love to stop here for a rumrunner drink, I like the beach area as well , but honestly it's not a place for children maybe the pool area but not the bar area, I'll tell ya why. When you have a bunch of drunks you never know when a dumb fight might break out, do you really want your children to see that or be in the middle, bars are not a safe place for children and children should not be in that kind of enviroment, Bars are for adult's over 21 to be not Kids, Most adult 's go to bars to not be around kids, it can be very annoying to people having children running around them. Take them to pier 60 where there are no bars and a park for the kids to hang out it's right down the street. Though Tropix is a relaxed atmosphere at most you never know when a fight may break out, like this last sunday! Some guy tossed a football and on accident bounced off another mans face it ended in a 5 man fight.
Pros: cool people
Cons: children should be kept near the pool area
