Beach Bars & Nightlife in Panama City Beach
For those that are looking to turn it up a notch after the sun goes down, the nightlife in Panama City Beach and Panama City features some of the greatest nighttime entertainment anywhere! Along with the beaches sporting two gigantic nightspots, including one of the largest nightclubs in the United States, there are plenty of places to take a load off, kick back with a fine tropical cocktail and party the night away. You can take your pick from the classic beachside bar & grill, slip on the dancing shoes and step out on some of the most modern dance floors on the planet, or even take center stage with numerous karaoke bars doting the area. Many of the smaller bars in our little coastal community have been entertaining visitors and locals for decades and be forewarned, there’s a chance you’ll make life-long friends and have to join them at the same spot year after year!
Wings. Beer. Sports.
Jerome and Maggie have been together for years, and luckily their respective friends enjoy each other’s company as well. But it’s Saturday night and pickings are slim on where to go. There are the dingy, gloomy bars filled with smoke that the women would rather not frequent, and there are the crazy fast night clubs that are too loud for the guys’ taste, plus there’s no food at either, and nobody really wants to drink lukewarm beer out of a plastic cup.
60+ Beers on Tap
Located immediately west of the Hathaway Bridge on Front Beach Road, Fishale Taphouse and Grill is Panama City Beach’s first official gastropub. The term gastropub is derived from London and depicts a casual pub that serves an upscale cuisine complimented by the assortment of beer the tavern offers. None of the other Panama City Beach restaurants can claim fame to that title!
When The Sun Goes Down Harpoon Harry’s Lights Up!
Harpoon Harry’s Beachfront Restaurant is one of Panama City Beach’s most loved beach bars. Its popularity exists due to the atmosphere it provides. There’s nothing better than walking onto a back deck with an ocean-view, breeze in your hair, just the right kind of music, and a cold drink in your hand. Paradise? Maybe. But for now, we call it Harpoon Harry’s.
We are very excited to bring the spirit of Munich’s fabled Hofbräuhaus to the Panhandle of Florida.
