    The beach: Going for a walk

    by tpangelinan Written Mar 1, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For us, one of the most romantic things is to go for a moonlit walk on the beach. It's so peaceful at night you can hear the waves breaking on the beach, getting your toes wet. Ok sorry didn't want to get to mushy on yah! But you do have to try it if you haven't!

  • Bradley's: Fun filled evening

    by extremist Written May 20, 2004

    The bar was quite an experience! It was carnival atmosphere, young and old. I found myself walking around in there feeling like a sardine, watching the activity going on on the bar tops and having to scream to my friends as it was loud in there. Met a NY pitcher in the parking lot, had invites to boat parties!

    Dress Code: dressy, casual, shorts, jeans, tank tops..

    All of them: Clubs and Bars

    by Fullmoonfever Written Sep 12, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are many bars and nightclubs in Universal Studios. All are good, meaning I didn’t see any big difference between them. Mostly which one you choose depends on what kind of music you like.

    Dress Code: Everyone that we have been in was casual, neat and casual. After all, people are on vacation!

    Mucky Duck Pub: Cool place to watch the sunset in Captiva

    by Jefie Written Jan 8, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The story goes that the idea of turning this former beach house into a pub came as its owners were enjoying a cold beer while watching the sunset on Captiva Island. The view was just too good to be true, and they felt it had to be shared with other people. A year later, in 1976, the Mucky Duck Pub opened its doors. The pub features a lovely beachfront section where patrons can sip a few drinks with their feet buried in the warm sand and order some appetizers. Once the sun is gone, it's also possible to have dinner inside (reservations are recommended).

    Blue Martini: Club not on South beach

    by bcorbitt Written Jun 23, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Went on a wednesday night with many people from the conference though it would have been crowded without us. Many locals and decent house bound and not extremely loud music. Service was reasonably fast considering the number of people. Nice semi outdoor area took advantage of the cooler night air with plenty of air conditioning in the rest of the place.

    Dress Code: Normal club night life clothing as though some people were in suits having come from work most were in in skimpy outfits or jeans and tees.

    Mangos Tropical Cafe: Tourist place on South beach

    by bcorbitt Written Jun 23, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cheesy and Touristy does not describe this place. Constant stream of women and some men dancing in stereotypical outfits. Food was just a step above taco bell as would rather had a burrito from chipotle or qdoba. The club area got fun playing every popular song you can imagine from YMCA to the Twist.

    Dress Code: Everything from club suits to touristy shorts and t-shirts

    Old Town is great! Full of numerous cafes, bars, gift shops, boutiques, amusements and a great opportunity to people watch!!
    If you are taking children as it can get a bit noisey, busy and rowdy especially at the weekends. We didn't experience no problems but we did leave a bit earlier than we would of, had we been childless for the night!!

    The club was clean, the waitress was good, and the girls were nice. Lots of different girls too, even during the day. Very cheap drinks. A nice place to hang out with friends. I don't know about night time, but there was no charge to get in during the day.

    House of Blues: House of Blues. Awesome concert venue!

    by ArenJo Written Feb 18, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I went to the House of Blues for the first time in my life last night. It is really convenient because it is at Downtown Disney and there is plenty of parking! The decorations were great, the concert was awesome and I'm not sure how common it is, but I waited around afterward and got to meet the artist. Best concert I have been to in my entire life!!!

    Also not sure how common it is, but I bought tickets when I showed up an hour before the concert with no problem. The concert didn't get packed until after it had started.

    Also, very good place to meet singles believe it or not.

    Dress Code: Anything goes...

    Club Mansion: Miami Nightlife

    by kimmie.casey Written Sep 9, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I purchased my ticket early, online, and was able to get in the club ahead of several people. I paid less for my ticket that way too! Expect to spend around $50 to $100 to get in the door. Here is an example on drink prices: My friend and I go to the bar and order " rum and coke and a vodka redbull please". Price = $25.00 plus a $5.00 tip. As you can tell that was a pretty expensive nite but with Sascha and Digweed DJing it was well worth it!

    Dress Code: Dress is normal club attire. SEXY!!!
