One of the brightest spots in the Floridian nightlife scene are the beaches. Millions of tourists and locals love Siesta Key nightlife in all variations.

Siesta Beach was named TripAdvisor’s 2015 ‘Best Beach in the U.S.’ Find out why Siesta Key has just what people need to make their vacation, or night out, one to remember.
In the same way “Laguna Beach” put relative unknowns into the spotlight on TV, Siesta Key, a reality show of young 20-somethings, was shot right here on Siesta’s beautiful sandy beaches. Attractive, young, and prominent young people hit the clubs and put the night scene on the map across the world. Millions of Americans and people around the world saw what Siesta Key has to offer. Some of the highlights included Beach Club for younger crowds, relaxing outdoor scenes at Siesta Key Oyster Bar and featuring local live music, bands and DJs. The show elevated Siesta Key nightlife to new heights and it’s not hard to see why.
Siesta Key is popular because of its shopping and entertainment district known as Siesta Village or ‘the Village.’ Filled with small boutiques, charming shops, and various cuisines from around the world, the Village is what brings people together. Want to hide away? Check out quiet spots away from the main drag like Siesta Key Oyster Bar or one of many rooftop bars and restaurants to take elevated nightlife to the next level. Check out classic ice cream parlors like Big Olaf Creamery for tasty homemade treats or get a bit more boozy with Daiquiri Deck and its hundreds of options for frozen treats (adults only). Siesta Village feels a bit ‘’old Florida,” to some but tourists and locals love to walk through the Village at night and enjoy the sights and sounds on a warm night.
