Kokopelli's Jazz Club: GREAT LIVE JAZZ?
Want to hear great live jazz while you are in Savannah? We found a place in a recent trip to Kokopelli's Jazz Club (www.kokopellisjazz.com) Kokopelli’s Jazz Club is the best place to hear jazz in Savannah. Other places that we tried aren't serious about the music, where it is merely background noise (the music wasn't that good). Kokopelli's features national artists as well as regional groups. The music is great and the cover is very reasonable for the great music you experience. Highly recommended for anyone looking hear some authentic jazz!
Dress Code: Nice dress. Maybe skips the sneakers and jeans..

Jinx/Velvet Elvis: Surreal and circus like in the wee hours
By day this place is relatively empty but with good happy hour pricing. By night it gets absolutely mad. We were here on a Thursday night, which was both ladies night and 80s night. When they say 80s they mean ALL sounds from the 80s, from New Wave and Punk to Salt 'n Peppa and Michael Jackson.
There is a uniquely ornamented stage that gets packed like a can of sardines with a mixed crowd of artsy college kids both straight and gay and inbetween when bands aren't performing on it. Decor is quite cool. Think skulls and scary dolls.
Drinks are inexpensive from the perspective of someone from Palm Beach County, Florida.
Happy hour was Buy one beer get the second for a $1 and Two for one well drinks.
Ladies night was $1 well drinks for the chicas.
Dress Code: Funky, spunky, punky, tees and jeans, colored hair and 80s retro. Young, hip, dirty and oh so artsy.
Bay Street Blues: cool place that rocks
It is quietly tucked away between Tony Roma's and Outback at 17 East Bay Street. It is locally owned and the owner/bartender sees that everyone has a good time. Karoke rocks the place on Friday and Saturday nights. The DJ entertains the crowd and keeps everyone involved. It really does not start getting packed until around 11:00 or later. The patrons are treated like old friends. There is mixture of ages and everyone has a great time. There is dancing on the small open floor area at the front! You have to check it out!
Dress Code: You will see all types of dress but mostly cool casual.

Club One: Is Lady Chablis there ?
As a fan of the movie "Midnight in theGerden of the Good and Evil" I was obliged to see at Club One if Lady Chablis was here.
When she (he) is in the evening show there is a sign "Lady Chablis (Benjamin) plays tonight". No sign. I did not go.

Historic Savannah Theatre: Broadway at Bull Street
We wished to finished our vacation by a musical show and we reserved at the Historic Theatre.
The show was composed by pieces of famous Broadway musicals in order to present four or five decades of musicals. The actors-dancers-singers were young and full of talent but they are far from the "elder class" of Broadway of NY.
In the middle of the show, in order to allow their friends to change costumes, two boys plaid the famous sketch of Abbott and Costello about the base ball (Who is on the first base ?). Everybody was double up except the two Frenchies who did not understand...
Reservation : 10AM to 4 PM except on Wed, Thurs, Fri, Sat 8PM
The show is at 8 PM
Price : 35$ tax included (30$ for seniors like us)
Dress Code: Shirt, pants, shoes.

McDonough's: Karaoke and Military
Fun little bar. They have karaoke 7 days a week and 22 flatscreen TVs with sports on. Lots of young enlisted soldiers and marines hang out here on the weekends, and it can get a bit rowdy, but in a fun way!
Great food, too!
Dress Code: Jeans, casual

Loco's: Great Bar
Loco's is the best all round bar. With great service, yummy food, a pool table, dart board, trivia night, poker night, Tvs doted around showing sportz and drink deals, you'll have a hard time finding a better bar!
Bayou Cafe: Live Guitar
Wonderful little bar that you have to walk up an enourmous flight of steps to get into, and another flight of steps to play pool or arcade games. The staff is friendly and the live music explosive. The address to the bar is Abercorn Street but it is actually located on the corner of Abercorn and River street. Don't try to just drive down Abercorn looking for it you'll never find it without asking a local. However, walking down River Street you will bump right into it
Wet Willie's: Slushie's Anyone?
In the center of it all on River Street is a small little bar that serves the best frozen drinks imaginable!
The first time I took my fiance here he had a drink called Call Me A Cab and that is just about what we had to do...(luckly I was designated driver)
You can either sit inside (usually packed) and listen to great music or take your super charged slurpie for a walk down River Street with you.
We will definitely be back again and again!
Dress Code: casual
Club One: Drag At Its Best
While strolling around near the City Market, we passed by Club One and saw an advertisement that the Lady Chablis was going to be performing that night. I have not read Midnight in the Garden of Good or Evil, nor had I seen the movie in years, but I did remember the Lady Chablis' character and figured I could not pass up the opportunity to see her perform. I did not know what we were getting into when we bought our tickets, but the night turned out to be great fun and I would go again in a heartbeat. Even if you happen to be in Savannah when the Lady Chablis is not performing, go see the girls at Club One, particularly if you are a fun and open person and are interested in the liberal underbelly of this Southern City. Everyone was spectacular and the show was incredibly high energy leaving us wanting more at the end of the night. I thought the bar in the basement was a little too dark and sticky for my tastes and the chairs where the performances are, a little uncomfortable, but you can't beat the entertainment of these class act drag queens.
Dress Code: As the ticket seller told us when we asked about dress code, as long as you're dressed, you're acceptable.
River front: River pix
More pix so that you can get a better idea of what the area is all about. We were on a coast guard boat at the time this picture was taken..They were giving free tours while the ship was docked..Lucky us!
Along the Savannah River: River Front area is probably best..
The river front is a nice place to be on a warm spring/summer evening..You can watch the river traffic while catching a warm breeze off the river..It's all very well lighted and there's always a lot of people along that area also...If you're looking for more lively night life I couldn't tell you where to go for that...Hanging out at night clubs isn't our main thing to do on vacation, although it would be nice to have one to go to every now and then..I'm sure Savannah has them, as a matter of fact I KNOW they do we just didn't check any out.
Dress Code: Wear comfy shoes like low heels or sneakers, or comfy sandals, the streets leading down to the river front are cobblestone and very hard to walk on in heels.

The BAR BAR: Fun place to go downtown
Underground with 3 rooms and a few pool tables,this bar has room for everyone!
The beautiful center bar is a great place to mingle or just chat with your friends.
Be kind to David-maybe he will grace you with his sparkling wit!
Dress Code: casual- dressy, everyone stops in at some point on the weekends

- Beer Tasting
Kevin Barry's Pub: good irish atmosphere:)
it's convenient, it's fun, there's live music. good beer, good people, good times had by all. What more do I need to say? I like this place a lot. I bet it's crazy on St. Patrick's Day...I've heard that Savannah has either the 2nd or 3rd largest celebration in the US.
Dress Code: I didn't notice a particular dress code. I was wearing courdoroys, a tank top and sandals. That seemed to be okay...I don't know about at night, though--we got there in the the evening and stayed for a long long time...I didn't pay attention to dress attire at that point.
Pinkie Masters: Drinking in the Square
Pinkie Master's is a ***hole of a bar that has a lot of history and is damn fun to get drunk at. Pinkie's is a blue collar bar filled with regular joes and starving artists.
Pabst Blue Ribbon or PBR is the beer of choice at Pinkie's. Pinkie Master, who died in 1978, was a life-long local politician who knew everyone in town. The numerous autographed pictures on the wall prove it. There's even George Wallace way back in his boxing days.
Jimmy Carter announced he was running for President after climbing on top of the bar. Al Goire even tried to do the same thing a couple of years, but he scored no points for originality.
Dress Code: Whatever you want to wear. Bars close at 3am.
