The Getaway

A Florida Keys-inspired waterfront tiki bar and marina on what locals call 'Beer Can Beach' you'll find The Getaway on the Pinellas side of Gandy Boulevard. Enjoy live entertainment, paddle boarding, and of course the beach drinks and chef-inspired menu!  Their Bloody Mary's rank among the top in Tampa Bay, and their menu is delicious. Try the Grown-up Grilled Cheese if you love to go Bleu or the Cobb Salad Wrap for something different. We've tried nearly the entire menu and everything has been spectacular. They have partying down to a science at this waterfront bar, so stop by this Memorial Day weekend for special drinks and deals all weekend long. Enjoy a Waterfront Brunch and Live Music beginning at 2 pm on Saturday #comebylandorbysea

Caddy's on the Beach

Good vibes happen on the tides! Sit on a picnic table or stand at a bar table in the sand at one of the largest beach bars in Tampa Bay. You can grab a table on the second-floor balcony, on the outdoor patio downstairs or inside where you can play pool and sit at the bar. No matter where you choose to relax this Memorial Day the views will be spectacular at Caddy's on Sunset Beach (St. Pete). They have valet parking and pure white sugar sand to calm those nerves so bring your beach gear and grab a spot in the sun, stay all day and watch the sunset, enjoy live music and hang with like-minded people. I've never been to Caddy's without meeting someone new. It's friendly, fun, the drinks are nice, their wings are great and the atmosphere is pure perfection! Every day is like a holiday at Caddy's.

Gators Cafe and Saloon

Claiming to have the world's largest waterfront bar, this establishment doesn't exactly have a beach under it, it's more of a marina bar with Treasure Island Beach across the street.

Party this weekend at Gator's, shoot some pool, play video and arcade games then walk over the bridge to the Village or head across to the beach for a walk and a sunset.

Bongos Beach Bar & Grille

I've not been to Bongos Beach Bar & Grille but it's got great word-of-mouth and a fun and casual beachside bar with daily food specials and discounted drinks. Found on St Pete Beach and directly on the Gulf of Mexico behind the Grand Plaza Beachfront Resort and Conference Center Hotel they have live music daily from two different artists, a full liquor bar, and over 200 frozen drinks...OK - then, you have MY attention. Fantastic food from 11 am until 11 pm this sounds like the perfect place to kick back, relax, and enjoy the sunset with your toes in the sand. I'm making plans already, you?
