Siesta Key Night Life: A Moonlit Paradise - Dancing & Romancing

Siesta Key, is just a few miles away from Sarasota and is a barrier island that is eight miles long. Many consider it to be ‘paradise’, with its abundance of beautiful beaches, tropical birds, and year-round sunshine. The warm waters from the Gulf of Mexico ensure that this little island stays warmer than inland Sarasota. But what does Siesta Key have to offer when the sun goes down?

Most of the action going on after dark on Siesta Key will be found in Siesta Village, where there is a handful of bars and pubs, all in keeping with the island’s tropical flavour. One of the most popular venues of Siesta Key seems to be the Daiquiri Deck, which is in ‘The Village’, as it’s locally known! Daiquiri Deck is popular to any age group, from retirees to those on a student break, and families alike. As the name suggests, the venue is home to many Daiquiri recipes, just to keep up with the tropical paradise theme. “The Deck” is open long hours, providing a place to have lunch or dinner. It hosts a variety of entertainment, especially during Spring Break, when volleyball tournaments, bikini contests and parties will be found on the beach, and spilling into the Village.

Another in ‘The Village’ of Siesta Key is The Beach Club, which is a trendy bar offering a fun retreat. Live bands are often featured, as well as cocktails and outdoor seating that keep locals and tourists coming back night after night. The bar also has many televisions to keep sports fans up-to-date on the latest scores! It is a popular spot for dancing the night away, to a wide array of different music styles.

The entirety of Siesta Key – especially in Siesta Village – has an ‘old world’ tropical beach hideaway to it, making it the ultimate in seaside holiday destinations. All of the restaurants, bars and pubs are decorated in a traditional beach hut style, some with thatched roofs and outdoor seating underneath a gazebo.

One of the most popular events to take place on Siesta Key is the Siesta Key Drum Circle. This is a tradition that happens every Sunday night. It brings together people from all walks of life – die-hard hippies, stock market businessmen and soccer moms all join together to lay down funky music with maraca, bongos and other types of percussion instruments. BYOD – Bring Your Own Drum!

Siesta Key tends to offer a quieter and more relaxed night out, so those requiring a little more liveliness and variety to their evenings would benefit from taking the short trip over into Sarasota. Sarasota offers a more city-based night out, with an abundance of night clubs, bars and social hot spots. It is very easy to reach over the Siesta or Stickney Point bridge, and is about a fifteen to twenty minute journey. It’s ideal if you are in need of a ‘bigger’ night out, although most find that Siesta Key has a perfect nightlife spot just for them. The selection of bars and restaurants offer lots of entertainment, and do their best to make your nights in Siesta Key just as perfect as the island.
