Open Late: Enjoy the Nightlife on the Forgotten Coast
By Forgotten Coast Web Team | December 10, 2018
If you think Florida’s Forgotten Coast goes to sleep when the sun sets, think again! Franklin County is home to a dynamic nightlife scene for foodies, revelers and night owls.
Whether you’re planning a girls’ night out, a romantic dinner date for two or just a fun evening on the town with friends and family, the Forgotten Coast serves up something for everyone. From our energetic live music venues and waterfront bars to our breweries and pet-friendly pubs, Franklin County is the perfect place to eat, drink and be merry.
You’ll discover an array of bars, venues and “open late” eateries scattered across Apalachicola, Carrabelle, St. George Island and Eastpoint. Visit The Tap Room in downtown Apalach to enjoy unique cuisine, throw back a few local brews or sip fine wine and hand-crafted cocktails from the full bar. Looking for family-friendly fun? Check out Eastpoint’s Red Pirate Family Grill and Oyster Bar, which serves up yummy “app-a-teazers,” raw or baked oysters, seafood baskets, sandwiches and more. Don’t forget to swing by their mini golf course!
If you prefer to party under the stars, visit St. George Island’s Mango Mike’s Sports Bar & Grill (formally Doc Myers’ Island Pub & Sports Bar), an outdoor restaurant and sports bar serving up burgers, seafood and entertainment. Check out Fathoms Steam & Raw Bar in Carrabelle to enjoy riverfront dining, live weekend entertainment and local steamed oysters.
Ready to dance the night away? Make your way to The Apalachicola Ice Company, the town’s newest live music venue, serving up draft beers and affordable wine in a pet-friendly beer garden.
The list goes on and on! For a full list of open late restaurants, bars and venues on the Forgotten Coast, visit our Nightlife page.
