Sarasota Live Entertainment, Nightlife & Live Music

Sarasota nights are synonymous with live music. Sunsets to die for, followed by a margarita at a tiki bar. Film festivals, stand-up comedy shows, and artistic performances are all available. Sarasota nightlife is more than meets the eye.

Sarasota nightlife may not be South Beach, but there’s plenty to do well into the morning hours, from swanky cocktails and a date-night dinner to a full-on bar-hopping extravaganza. Visit a live music venue, visit one of our many craft beer bars with hundreds of rotating taps, or try a craft cocktail with flavors you’ve never had before.

Perhaps you’re looking for a nice time away from the beach or the bars after a long day of soaking up the sunshine, walking the strand, or just lounging. Perhaps a fun place to relax and be entertained!

We also have the best music nightlife at Bavaro’s Pizza in downtown Sarasota hosting local talent! See our lineup and schedule here!

A movie, a film, live theatre, or a concert can all be found on the Sarasota Suncoast.

The area hosts many of the major events and celebrities. Sarasota is certainly not short on arts and live entertainment.

Sarasota’s entertainment scene is alive and well, as lively as any you’ll find elsewhere. And we’re extremely proud of the exceptional and talented individuals who made it all possible.

It’s just a matter of what you’re in the mood for or what you lean toward on the Sarasota entertainment and arts scene; a movie, live theatre, dance, comedy, or a concert.

I’ll go over the Sarasota entertainment scene here, which includes film, live theater from the Asolo Repertory Theater to the Players Theater, and music from the Sarasota Orchestra to the Sarasota Opera, among other things.
