Space Coast's Best Bars and Nightclubs: Go Out and Go Coco-Nuts



Out of all the clubs and bars in a city, 10Best narrows the options to those places with the most appeal and the best reputations. We offer a carefully vetted selection to let you explore Space Coast nightlife on your own. If time is really tight, though, and you don't have the leisure to look through all our offerings, we present our Space Coast Best Nightlife list. Here, we distill the best businesses down to a special selection of ten. These places promise a stellar experience and a taste of the city that you just can't miss.

By day, stimulate your brain (and fantasies) with a tour of the space station. Challenge your muscles with a surfboard on the waves. But keep your vacation balanced by playing as hard as you work. 

Brevard County, Fla., and the surrounding Space Coast area has relaxation down to an art form. Relax to jazz music on the beach and even light up a cigar at the chill Beach Shack. Enjoy nationally renowned comedy acts at the reputable Groucho's Comedy Club locations throughout Melbourne. And it wouldn't be a visit to Cocoa Beach without a cold one and a view of the ocean at Coconuts. Things can get pretty rowdy at Coconuts, so come prepared for a wild one.
