About Space Coast, FL Nightlife

Nightlife on the Space Coast is diverse, from nationally renowned stand-up comedy, to blues music on the beach, to bikini contests at Coconuts. But one thing all of the Space Coast's nightlife has in common is the relaxed, free-spirited, friendly vibe that makes this stretch of Florida so appealing to visitors. Whether you're looking for a fancier night on the town (the respectable and sophisticated Heidi's Jazz Club) to a good ol' night in the pub (Meg O'Malley's, one of our favorite Irish pubs in the country), you are sure to have an entertaining evening around Brevard County. Here, residents know how to play as hard as they surf.
