Cocktail Bar

“Excellent cocktails and dinner in a historical setting. This is a great spot to grab drinks, socialize, and enjoy unique southern fare off the beaten path. Reservations recommended. A very large building, but fills up fast.”

“Cap's has an unbeatable vibe for sunset dining. They have a bunch of tables right on the water of the Intracoastal under the oak trees with huge beards of Spanish Moss. The food is great southern+sea food. One of the best places in Saint Augustine, period. Be sure to get there early, they don't take reservations and 2+ hour waits are not uncommon.”

“Located in the heart of the historic district on St. George Sreet, stop by this vintage gastropub with live music and delicious food. Feel like you've been transported to a speakeasy. 119 St. George Street, St. Aug, FL 32084”

“The winery has the best atmosphere in St. Augustine whether you are having lunch, dinner, or just drinks! There's almost always live music and dancing. My personal favorite is Vitner's Red wine. The rooftop features inside and outside lounging and dining areas, but if you go during the day, make sure to take their complimentary tasting tour of the rest of the facility.”

“If you are looking for an eclectic bar that will make you a drink customized to what you like, this is it. Most nights they have music and have "bar food" menu items. This is one of my personal favorites. There is a dance clue above it and just down the street from it as well (White Lion). You can walk here!!!”
