    McGuire's Irish Pub: An Irish Gem

    It doesn't seem that VT consider pubs as nightlife. Well I do. We don't all require night clubs and dancing.
    This is a very traditional looking Irish Pub open from 11am 7 days a week.
    They brew their own beer on the premises and have 5 regular beers from Light to Irish Stout. They also have seasonal beers. I tried a few of these beers as you would expect and they're well worth a go.
    There is also a large menu if you get peckish. Regular live music is also on the bill although not when we visited.
    If you're in Pensacola find this place. You'll like it.

    Dress Code: Can't say as I noticed any

    McGuires Irish Pub: Any night of the week

    by PA2AKgirl Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Irish Wake

    They have live music on the weekends in the winter and every night in the summer (I'm told, I have not been there every night of the week, though) And it's Irish music--I've been up on stage singing "The Unicorn" and "Beer, Beer, Beer" and some other stuff I'm sure. It's a lot of fun...you can choose to be involved in the music or sit in a back room and enjoy something a bit more quieter (but why would you?)

    Order the Irish Wake. I don't know what's in it, but it's great..it's tastes like juice and they only let you have one (so you know it's good stuff)

    Another thing--there are dollars everywhere, try to get one up on the wall!

    AND, try to kiss the moose head, you'll see what I mean when you go.

    I have had a few experiences here, all of which were good but one. And that was my own fault--21st birthday. I don't remember leaving the place or the events that followed. SO, be careful, the alcohol flows faster than you can drink it:)

    oh, and they brew their own beer, too...but everything is available

    Dress Code: You can be as dressy as you'd like. It's also a somewhat expensive restaurant, so I'd go little more dressy than a bar on the beach.

    The Deck at The Fish House: Ladies Night

    by lorzarn Updated Jul 8, 2010

    If you looking for a midweek party- look no more! Wednesday nights at The Deck at The Fish House are rockin'! There is no cover charge, and drinks for the ladies are only $2. Wine, beer, martinis, cocktails- you name it, it is $2. They serve a limited menu to table tops until around 10pm- including crab claws and ahi tuna appetizers. The food is from The Fish House restaurant.
    There are live bands that play until around 1030 or 11pm, then it changes over to DJ. In the summer months this place is packed- it is a great place to go and people watch also. It is set right on the Pensacola Bay, so the view is beautiful.
    It is open air, and in the summer it gets hot!! The winter months they cover it up with plastic walls, and set up heaters.

    Dress Code: No specific dress code. If you go in the summer months, dress cool! In the winter months, wear layers. It can get chilly until the place fills up, and then you will be burning up!

    Bamboo Willie's Beachside Bar: Rockin' Tunes and Fruity Drinks on the Beach

    by TravellerMel Written Aug 26, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    So much fun! On the boardwalk, so you can look out over Pensacola bay and listen to great music. We heard the house band, Ba'nana Republic, and they were rockin' the tunes from the 60's to today. Dance floor up front, stools and tables all around, and a bar inside - this is exactly what I was looking for on a Summer Friday night!

    Dress Code: As casual as you wanna be - I saw girls in sequined tops, beach dresses, jeans and t-shirts, as well guys in shorts and flip-flops, polo shirts and slacks. Just a beach cover-up - I didn't see anyone in swimsuits, but maybe they do during the day...

    Trader Jon's

    Trader Jon was a long-ago partner of Cap'n Tony's in Key West, Fl. This "watering hole" has been the subject of folklore and featured in Bob Hope's Special celebrating the "75th Anniversary of Naval Aviation" and the movie "An Officer and a Gentleman" Trader has passed on, however, the new owner has continued in his spirit. Make sure your stop -in; TJ's spirit still serves you a cool one.

    Dress Code: Come as you are!

    As above Club La Vela and Spiniker. Where it starts rowdy and ends rowdy. I have been going there for the past 15 years and the only rowdy thing about it is the fun. Lots of fun and friendly people.
