If you've only been to Jacksonville for the day, you haven't really been to Jacksonville. Whether you like to party, try local restaurants, bar hop, or even just sightsee night is the prime time to experience your favorite things in Jacksonville! Here's some areas of Jacksonville we feel have the best night life...
If you're looking for a fun night out, the beach bars are the place to go. Located on 1st Street strip in Jacksonville Beach, the beach bars make bar hopping easy. With so many bars right next to each other it can be hard to know which one fits you but not to worry we have you covered!
If you enjoy DJs and dancing the night away, Ritz, Surfer (upstairs), Shim Sham (upstairs), and Salt are four bars you definitely want to check out! Each bar not only has a DJ but a dance floor as well. These are some great bars to meet the locals and dance the night away.
Lynch's Irish Pub, Hoptinger, and Surfer are known for the local musicians they bring in. Grab a drink and enjoy live music brought to you by Jacksonville's up-and-coming artists. (FYI Surfer has two floors and the live music can be found one the first floor)
If you enjoy playing pool, ping pong, darts, or any bar games Tavern, Ritz, and Surfer are the bars for you. Tavern has many pool tables while Surfer has ping-pong, giant Janga, and an outdoor Connect 4 set. And for all you dart lovers out there, make sure you stop at Ritz.
If you're the type of person that likes to hang out in a laidback environment, Riverside has the perfect night scene for you. The Riverside bars are known for hipster vibes. Hoptinger, a bar in Riverside, has a beautiful rooftop bar that allows you to see the view of Downtown Jacksonville. Other bars in Riverside include Birdies, Rogue, Kickbacks, and Keg and Coin.
The nightlife in downtown is rather limited but there are a few spots that are worth a visit! Myth Night Club and Element Bistro offer a great night out with girls. Right next door to Myth is the Live Bar which is known for its crazy parties. If clubs aren't your thing, stop by Intuition Brewery and get a taste of some of Jacksonville's craft beer.
