St Pete Beach Bars

It’s beautiful during the day, but St Pete Beach comes alive at night. ¬†After those hot Florida days, a beach bar is the perfect place to cool down, relax, and enjoy some of the best food and drink the Tampa Bay area can offer.

Now, there are plenty of choices, so these are just a few of our favorite St Pete Beach bars and nightlife hotspots. Go looking and you’ll probably find some favorites of your own!

General Info

Beach Drive is home to a fabulous array of beach bars, cafes, and late-opening stores, as well as excellent restaurants. It's popular with locals as well as visitors, so you know it's good. In fact, we think Beach Drive at night is the perfect balance between serene beach parks and lively nightlife.

There are too many beach bars in this area to list them all, so we recommend just taking a walk along the beach and picking out whichever you like. Choose from high-end cocktails to old-English beer pubs and enjoy the sea views and relaxed atmosphere.

St Pete Beach loves festivals. There is almost always something special happening and some great regular events as well. On the first Friday of every month, Central Avenue hosts an outdoor nightlife street party with live music, food and drink until 10pm.

If you feel like a truly authentic experience of St Pete Beach nightlife, Shadrack's is the place to go. It's a little more wild and they don't serve much food, but there certainly is a full selection of liquors to choose from. Pool and video games are on offer, as well as the traditional jukebox.

Shadrack's is located in the historic 8th Avenue district and it's usually easy to find. Just look for the row of Harleys out front.

It's not exactly on the sand, but The Wharf is definitely one of the best bars on St Petersburg Beach. Surrounded by docks and with a cool, salty sea breeze often wafting right through, there are water views out to Tierra Verde and Shell Key. It's a great place to go for a drink whether you want a jug of beer, shots, or a good glass of wine. And don't stop there- you shouldn't leave without sampling some of the best old-fashioned Key West seafood Florida has to offer.
tip

Travel Tip

The Wharf is open til 11 every night except Thanksgiving. It's an easy walk from Inn on the Beach but if you've hired a boat, you can tie up right outside.
