Nightlife, Entertainment & Festivals

Sarasota nights mean live music. Breathtaking sunsets followed by a margarita at a tiki bar. Film festivals, live comedy shows and artistic performances. There's more to Sarasota nightlife than meets the eye.

From swanky drinks and a date-night dinner to a full-on bar-hopping extravaganza: Sarasota nightlife might not be South Beach, but there's plenty to do well into the morning hours. Check out a live music venue, head to one of our many craft beer bars boasting dozens of rotating taps, or sip a craft cocktail infused with flavors you've never tasted before.
