Waterfront and Beach Bars

Whose dream holiday doesn't include lingering over a cocktail while watching the sun, sand and water? At these waterfront and beachfront bars, you'll experience just that. The only problem you'll have is picking which one (or ones) to try before heading home.

1 360° Rooftop Lounge at Kimpton Hotel Zamora

2 Caddy's Waterfront

Caddy's Waterfront, is one of the few beachfront bars on the Gulf coast where you can legally wiggle your toes in the water while sipping your beverage of choice. It can get rowdy on weekends, but the panoramic views you’ll find on the open-air second floor are priceless.

3 Frenchy's Rockaway Grill

A mainstay of Clearwater Beach, Frenchy's Rockaway Grill is the largest of the four Frenchy's establishments in the area. It opens right onto the Gulf of Mexico sand and often hosts live local bands. Don't just come for the drinks and beachy atmosphere--you won't want to miss the classic Grouper Sandwich.

4 Gators Cafe and Saloon

Legend has it that Gators Cafe and Saloon is the longest waterfront bar in the world. It has three floors and is the place to watch the game – especially if you’re a (University of Florida) Gators fan. You may even spot a dolphin or two passing by on the water as you sip the night away.

11 Swigwam Beach Bar

Not technically on the beach, but so close we wouldn't want to forget this divey gem on St. Pete Beach’s blossoming Corey Avenue. The Swigwam is an old Florida classic that has dollar bills plastered to the walls and one of the best dartboards in town.

12 Undertow Beach Bar

A quintessential beachfront spot, Undertow Beach Bar has a great selection of import and craft beers. The oversized wooden beach chairs facing the beach volleyball court are a huge hit, and you can catch sunsets from the rooftop deck.
