Beach Bars, Brew Pubs, and Nightlife in Panama City Beach
Been on the beach all day and now that the sun has gone down, it doesn’t mean that you have to call it a day. Both Panama City Beach and Panama City have plenty of places to take a load off, kick back with a fine tropical cocktail, and party the night away. 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 several popular karaoke bars. 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!
