Florida Nightlife

  • Nightclubs and Bars

    Orlando Nightlife

    This is where I am to tell you why you would want to go there. Well when I was back to visit in 1996 the city had closed it down. It was a country bar. So if thats your thing go for it. I remember it for the concerts and the shear madness of an all night party. I was able to see Pearl Jam here April 24, 1992 when face value was just $10 for one of...

    These last two reviews are bogus. They are both made on same day and are by ownership. Read further down this thread. Do yourself a favor and avoid this place. It is a complete and total scam. These scumbags will ruin your vacation like they did mine and many others. It's the absolute worst place you could go to on duval street. Keywest was a great...

  • Milltop Tavern

    Saint Augustine Nightlife

    This place isn't such a bad place to hang out, especially on a balmy night when they have live music. It has a lot of outside seating, and even the bar area, which has a roof, is open air. It's right on St. George Street, and the view is of the river.

  • Ybor City

    Tampa Nightlife

    We wanted some cigars for a wedding gift, so we swung by -- where else -- the cigar capital of the free world, Ybor City. We were looking for a small, quiet place where we cigar novices could choose a bundle or box of cigars without the pressure of a bunch of cigar snobs looking over our shoulders. Our first stop was La Herencia de Cuba, a small...

    In a lot of beach towns, (and I mean A LOT), the beach closes at 11:00pm, and you are not allowed back on it until dawn. In Sanibel, most of the accomidations are walking distance to the beach, and a quiet deserted beach. A quiet, moonlit walk on beach can be had here!

  • Dockside Lounge Sombrero Marina

    Marathon Nightlife

    We've tried twice to eat here and many cruisers make this a meeting place because they have a dinghy dock for the folks anchored or moored in the harbor. The first time, they told our SIL that they didn't have room for his little boat - they were saving the dock space for a big boat. The second time, they were having chicken wings and Bob...

    Key West Nightlife

    Duval St. has an abundance of nightclubs/bars & thrives on its entertainment value. However, the club hopping can also lead to an unhappy ending if you are unfortunate enough to drive through one of their numerous traffic stops. The city that encourages "the Duval crawl" also has law enforcement stepping up its traffic citations, esp. DUI. Reading...

    Whenever we go to Miamarina, we see this 200' x 40' mega yacht gambling ship. She goes outside the 3 mile limit so that gambling is legal.

    Miami Nightlife

    You can very easily have a bad experience in Miami if you never been to Miami before. Best practices would be to get on the guest list and get there early, and you can almost guarantee entry into a miami nightclub. A collar shirt,straight leg jeans, and casual shoes is a safe outfit that won't cause you any problem getting in a Miami nightclub.

    There's always a party at Joe's! If you're not in the mood for a raucous frat party, you might pick a different bar. But if you are... let loose and have fun! It's supposed to be haunted by Ernest Hemingway himself, according to the ghost tour app we picked up. Apparently he didn't want to leave either! Very casual

    Dual sided dance club with 70's disco on one side and more modern progressive stuff on the other, it doubles as a Martini bar with tasty coctails like the Sour Apple at $10.75 a pop. A bit expensive, but good fun. Nice but not super picky unless it's crowded when doorman are more selective.

    The bouncers at this club are overzealous $8/hour roided up idiots. After having a nice dinner (and not drinking), I left with my iced tea in my hand. The bouncer told me that I couldnt leave with my drink (in a plastic to-go cup). I informed him that it was iced tea and I wouldnt be throwing it away. The bouncer then actually crushed it in my...

    This was my second trip to Eden. The first was uneventful with no nudity except the crazy local guy who everyone writes about.

We checked out the usual...

    Tradewinds was great fun. When we first showed up it was still light out and there were a few people in the bar and a lone man with a guitar.

    The Castle in the Ybor City area of Tampa is great if you like gothic music. Two floors, each with its own music. Varieties of gothic wear, although you will see 'normal' people in polos and shorts. Just go with all black and you'll be fine.
