Live It Up with Nightlife in 30A Hotspots

Bud & Alley’s in Seaside is tucked between the Gulf of Mexico and the dunes of 30A. It’s a local mainstay in the nightlife scene, particularly well-known for its roof deck bar and its tropical drinks.


The Beach House in Sandestin is famous for its moonshine, wines, and Tuesday night open-mic nights. They also serve drinks in quirky solo cups, ensuring glass doesn’t make its way onto the beach right out front.


Just across the street from the beach tucked between Old Florida Beach and Dune Allen Beach, Growler Garage is a craft beer-lover’s dream. Florida-brewed beers are served on draft at this gulf-front spot. You can fill up one of their iconic plastic or stainless steel growlers and head to the beach across the street, as no glass is allowed on 30A’s beaches.


Seagrove Beach’s Old Florida Fish House is home to a hidden bar known as The Porch. Looking out over Eastern Lake, this laid-back bar is an idyllic spot for a casual drink in the middle of nature.


Also in Seagrove is 723 Whiskey Bravo, known for their high-quality menu of food and drinks and the stunning views from their rooftop bar.


Chiringo in Grayton Beach is home to not only delicious food, but also to a fresh juice bar (where you can spike your drink), draft beers, and craft cocktails. Its gulf-front views are also remarkable.


The Red Bar is a must-try destination on 30A. Like Chiringo, the bar makes its home in Grayton Beach, but it stands out for its iconic rusted roof, the incredible live music from its house and guest bands and DJs, and for its selection of wine, beer, and liquor.
