Sarasota, Florida has always been a cultural powerhouse. Some would chalk it up to its artistic history that has even involved circus culture, while others claim that it’s the location on the Gulf of Mexico’s coast that draws in artistic types. Either way, this town’s fun and funky vibe means that there are always plenty of things to do in Sarasota. Looking for a night on the town? These are just a few of our favorites.
The Gator Club
In what was once an old historic building lies The Gator Club, Sarasota’s premiere location for live music and great drinks. Spirits from small businesses line the drink cabinets, and live music can range from hip-hop to rock to something indescribable. If you’re looking for one of the best things to do in Sarasota, you’ll want to check this out.
5 O’Clock Club
Open since 1955, this jazzy nightclub has developed a reputation for great music and cute drinks with its clientele. On any given night you can show up and hear the likes of Frankie Lombardi and The Verge play live! That’s not to discredit the drinks or the atmosphere – the wall of top shelf liquor and list of cocktails should prove that.
Pangea Alchemy Lab
It’s hard to find an experience like the one at Pangea Alchemy Lab. What other bar is styled like an Art Deco speakeasy and serves up cocktails in what looks like a mad scientist’s lab? Thrill seekers will love the rush of trying the vegetal, clean Snapea Dragon with sake and snap pea juice, while those who seek out something more classic will appreciate their Chai, with lavender vodka.
It isn’t hard to find unique things to do in Sarasota – after all, they don’t call it the Cultural Capitol for nothing. The only hard thing is staying close enough to make sure that you don’t miss out on all the action.
