How to Spend a Night Out on the Town
There’s more to Naples than famed beaches and golf. From our North Naples restaurants to hot spots in Marco Island, nightlife in Naples is electric.
Whether you’re in the mood to laugh, dance, catch a game or just sit by the water and sip a craft cocktail, we’ve got a place for you. Check out our list below to find the perfect atmosphere for your night out in Naples.
Before your night on the town, fill up on some good eats. There are many restaurants on 5th Avenue in Naples that are not to be missed. Yabba Island Bar & Grill features a menu full of delicious fare—from steaks to stone crab. This 5th Avenue restaurant offers a truly Naples-esque atmosphere combining Florida’s laid-back lifestyle with delicious island delicacies. Another top 5th Avenue restaurant in Naples is Ocean Prime—perfect for a date night and the kitchen is open late. Restaurants in North Naples also offer a good variety. Try The Turtle Club for dinner.
Music and Dancing
There are plenty of places to enjoy live music around Naples. CJ’s on the Bay is a staple of Marco Island nightlife. This island casual establishment offers a daily happy hour and features a large outdoor gazebo bar—a prime location to catch a Florida sunset. You’ll find live music on the gazebo every Thursday evening until 9pm (weather permitting) and additional live entertainment inside on Thursday, Friday and Saturday until 11:30pm. Elsewhere in Marco Island, try Little Bar Restaurant. Little Bar offers a packed entertainment schedule, with a side of fresh seafood and water views. For a night of dancing, try Blue Martini in Naples.
Movies and Comedy
Naples is also home to entertainment options beyond live music. Catch a late-night, newly released movie at Silverspot Cinema and enjoy food and drinks delivered right to your comfortable, leather seat. For a laugh, try Off the Hook Comedy Club. This lively venue in North Naples hosts touring stand up comedians and even offers an open mic night if you’re feeling brave.
Grab a custom cocktail or specialty drink on property at our very own Mantra. Or, if you’d like to venture into town, we recommend the bar at 7th Avenue Social, which is open well past midnight. There you’ll find pun-ny, handcrafted drinks like “Let’s Monkey Around” and “1st Class Pear-fection.” HobNob Kitchen & Bar is also a weekend favorite with an extensive list of spirits and “nobtails.” Cigar lovers, grab fine cigars and premium spirits at Burn by Rocky Patel.
Sports Bars / Pubs
For a casual sports bar in Naples, head to Tavern on the Bay. Sit on the lively deck with a view of the bay, or grab a prime spot by the TVs inside to watch a game. Old Naples All American Sports Bar is also one of our favorites. A classic sports bar, Old Naples features drink specials, karaoke nights, live music and pub food.
Whether you’re looking for a casual evening, or a dance-filled night on the town, Naples has the place for you.
