Fort Myers and the Gulf Islands that surround the city, offer some of the best nightlife in Southwest Florida. One of the best stops for the party crowd looking for options is downtown Fort Myers. The brick streets are lined with funky dens, wine bars, pubs and clubs. The area really gets cranking during the monthly Music and Art Walks.
Another hot destination for the bar hopping bunch, is Gulf Coast Town Center. Even though it's extremely popular with the college crowd, there are spots that cater to every age and any taste; from Tequila bars to cigar bars, and sushi bars to piano bars.
Vacationers looking for a more relaxed island-style vibe will enjoy sipping a beer or cocktail at one of the many beach pubs on Estero and Sanibel Islands. If you're looking for a party on Fort Myers beach, the Cottage Beach Bar consistently delivers a good time. It's directly on the beach with live music nightly, and it is right next door to the Spring Break party mecca of the Lani Kai Island Resort, if you're feeling adventurous.
Whether you want to chill to live music or dance to a DJ, you'll find a spot to embrace in this 10Best list.
