After a long day in the sun, everyone can use a cold drink and some good tunes to mellow out. Destin is infamous for not only its beautiful beaches, but also for its booming nightlife. With plenty of different ambiances and atmospheres, here are a few local favorites:
-AJ’s Seafood and Oyster Bar- a great party choice in Destin Harbor, usually featuring live music and -always with great beer specials
-McGuire’s Irish Pub and brewery- Beer is made on location and the place is fully decked in Irish memorabilia. The food is great and so are the people.
-Hog’s Breath Destin- Live music, pool tables, outdoor deck, and a laid back atmosphere make for a more chill night out.
-Cafe Thirty-A- Specialty martinis, a great wine list, and food specials like grilled swordfish or filet mignon with truffle aioli make this a 30-A staple if you don’t mind the 20 minute drive from Destin.
-Picolo Restaurant and The Red Bar- Blues and jazz music is usually howling throughout this legendary bar and eatery.
-Howl at the Moon (Fort Walton Beach)- A battle of the pianos dual takes the spotlight at this lively bar in Fort Walton beach. Great music and great views of the beach make this bar a local favorite.
