The Necessity of a Beach Bar
Whether you imbibe alcohol or not a visit to one of the many beach bars along the coast of Manatee or Sarasota County is a must to get a taste of Paradise.
200 Gulf Drive N., Bradenton Beach
One of my long-time favorites just underwent a renovation to allow more diners to enjoy the sunset along with the fabulous food that will stay in your memory for years to come.
LIDO BEACH RESORT TIKI BAR
700 Ben Franklin Drive, Sarasota
This one is close to home and satisfies my longing for clean white sand and sounds of surf while enjoying locals and tourists that stay at the resort.
LIDO KEY TIKI BAR
1234 Ben Franklin Drive, Sarasota
If you are a local and need a laid back atmosphere to relax this tiki bar is where it’s at.
O’LEARY’S TIKI BAR AND GRILL
5 Bayfront Drive, Sarasota
After a walk around the park and marina at the Sarasota Bayfront, O’Leary’s is the perfect spot to eat and drink and listen to a local guitarist to sooth your soul.
This is the short list. For more info go to this map.
