Soak Up the Local Nightlife
Rooftop lounges, beachside bars, nightclubs with outdoor seating: St. Pete/Clearwater’s nightlife scene strikes a balance between funky, swanky, and chill. So many options to see and be seen…and show off that hard-earned tan.
Take your pick of nightlife venues in downtown St. Pete, whether it’s the Irish bar, MacDinton’s (note: great people-watching), or a night of trendy and sophisticated cocktail tasting on Central Avenue. Try any one of these downtown nightclubs and bars in St. Pete: Tryst Gastro Lounge, with cozy outdoor seating and an elegant bar; Cask & Ale, serving up craft cocktails, craft beers, and small plates; and The Mandarin Hide, a speakeasy style bar with delectable drinks. Also, party in the open air at First Friday in downtown St. Pete—a pop-up atmosphere with live music, drinks and food.
If you simply refuse to leave the beautiful beaches, then grab a drink and listen to live music at Woody’s, The Undertow, or Harry’s Beach Bar, all in St. Pete Beach. The Clearwater Beach nightlife scene includes Shephard’s Tiki Bar and the Palm Pavilion, which have a great beachy vibe along with tasty cocktails and music.
Beer lovers, we haven’t forgotten about you. With an incredible number of craft breweries and brew pubs, including Florida’s oldest at Dunedin Brewery as well as the home of one of Beer Advocate’s highest-rated brews at Cycle Brewing, you can spend the day and night traveling the craft beer trail.
