There is plenty of nighttime fun in Sarasota after the sun sets. Kick off the evening before dining out by enjoying a couple Happy Hour drinks and appetizer specials. After dinner, take advantage of area restaurants and bars offering nightly beer, wine, and well specials. Mix in some live music and you’ve got a recipe for fun. The area’s combination of bars and restaurants present numerous options for an exciting night on the town. The hardest thing about Sarasota’s nightlife is deciding where to go, but you can be sure that no matter where you chose to spend your night you’re in for a good time.
