Night life for 20 somethings?


6 of us - my husband and I plus our children 24 & 22 and their partners are staying at Holmes Beach for a week in March. Is there any night life for them nearby or will they have to drive to Sarasota?

Many thanks.

They may want to try Decoy Ducks, Slims and Feeling Swell. They are laid back Island watering holes that often have live music.

Yes, I would try Decoy Ducks but Sarasota is a great place for music, Floridianer can tell you more about the clubs. WE're too old, we just hang out at Drift-In and watch the karaoke guy :)

Rusty, you and David, in your 40´s are considered KIDS in Florida!!!!

I would second D´coy Ducks or Downtown Sarasota! Main Street (near the harbour) is the place to go! Plenty of Bars and Clubs (gator club is quite good)

SRQGirl will have the best advise for Downtown!

But the Beach Restaurants (Sandbar and Beach House) will have live music too on most evenings. Fantastic view!!
