Sarasota Florida Night Life
The Buzz on Sarasota's Nightlife


Sixty miles south of Tampa lay a little gem on the Western coast of Florida known as Sarasota. After a day of lounging on one of the 13 beaches that stretches over 35 miles of coastline, or discovering the rich and diverse culture along with the marine life, the day comes to a close but the nightlife is just beginning. Sarasota Florida has a nightlife that will appeal to the most discriminating of tastes. From the highly refined to letting it loose on the dance floor, Sarasota’s nightlife has the right nighttime activity just for you.

Being culturally diverse, Sarasota can have a refined elegant evening waiting as you and your date take in a symphony by the Florida West Coast Symphony or catch the Ballet at the Sarasota Ballet of Florida. After the show you can dine in one of the many fine restaurants like Ophelia’s On The Bay, located on Siesta Key where you can spend a relaxing evening dining on the Terrace overlooking Little Sarasota Bay sipping an exquisite wine and and tasting creative cuisines. Or, if you prefer a more local flavor, try the Rustic Grill that combines an old Florida flavor with global trends in downtown Sarasota.

Perhaps you are looking for great cuisine mixed with a bit of the Sarasota nightlife, look no further than Mattison’s City Grill located on Main Street and Lemon. Enjoy award winning Chef Paul Mattison’s exciting al fresco menu with an Italian flair. Sit outside on the patio and enjoy their great selection of fine wines with the sound of live music playing in the background while socializing with your friends.

Ready to dance the night away? Look no further than the old historic building on Main and Lemon, The Gator Club. The Gator Club was voted the best Nightclub in Sarasota by it's patrons. Gator Club offers style and fun with the dance floor downstairs where you can dance to the rhythm and blues and top 40’s music. Want a more relaxed social atmosphere? Head upstairs to where you will find pool tables and a large lounge area allowing you to relax with friends while sipping on their large selections of scotch and whiskeys. Take the dancing out to the waters at Le Barge where you can dance the night away on the top deck of the boat where the entertainment is usually a solo performing artist, playing island type music like Jimmy Buffett in the cool Florida night air overlooking Sarasota Florida’s famous tropical waters.

Finding great music is easy in Sarasota. There are many bars that cater to a great nightlife ranging from the best of local music to the national tour circuit. Take the 5 O’Clock Club, located in the Southside Village on Hillview Street, on any given night you can experience music from the sounds of Reggae to the more eclectic. Sarasota Florida’s nightlife is briming with activity that caters to every type personality out there. So be prepared to eat delicious foods and dance the night away while listening to excellent music as you experience the nightlife of Sarasota!
