Things to Do in St. Augustine at Night

There are many things to do at night in St. Augustine so it’s important not to let an itinerary chockfull of sightseeing and attractions tire you out before the sun goes down. Whether you’re hoping to rekindle a spark, enjoy hours of entertainment, or want to get a few items checked off your ‘things to do’ list, nightlife in St. Augustine is sure to exceed your expectations.

If you’re looking for romance…

Whether you’re on a weekend getaway, a honeymoon, or a babymoon, nightlife in St. Augustine is just the right place for you to enjoy the company of your loved one in a relaxing and dreamy atmosphere. Even a nighttime stroll along the bayfront under the stars is a romantic experience in itself. However, don’t forget to try the activities below for a truly lovely time.

Wine and Dine

There are dozens of wonderful restaurants within walking distance from your Historic Inn and many of them have an atmosphere and menu perfect for lovers looking to wine and/or dine during the night. Try the following restaurants for a romantic dining experience unparalleled to any other: O.C. Whites, Tini Martini, Michael’s, and Collage.

Cuddle and Snuggle During A Tour

Ah, what better way to relax after an action-packed day of exploring than snuggling up under the stars with your loved one. Luckily, there are several tours that take place at night if this sounds like your recipe for love. We recommend either setting sail under the stars with Schooner Freedom or going back in time during a horse and carriage ride with the Tasting Tours LLC.

If you’re looking for entertainment…

In many destinations, bars and clubs are the highlights of nightlife. But this isn’t the case for downtown St. Augustine. Instead, this quaint, small town keeps the locals and travelers entertained with plays, shows, and live music. Although heading to a local pub is always an option, the following things to do in St. Augustine at night are a bit more off the beaten path.

Dinner and the Theater

Patrons can enjoy a bite to eat at the Raintree Restaurant and then attend a play at the Limelight Theatre.

Dance at Prohibition Kitchen

Is it a bar? Is it a club? Is it a restaurant? Well, Prohibition Kitchen is actually a combination of all three. Upon entrance you’ll find a raised platform for a band and an area to dance to the right, a bar straight ahead, and a large dining area to the left. They have a reliably unique lineup of musicians seven days a week, featuring jazz, classical, pop, soul, and an array of other types of music. We invite you to dance the night away at Prohibition Kitchen tucked away on St. George Street.

Enjoy Live Music

Listening to live music as it flows through the quaint streets of downtown is just another great reason to lodge with the St. Augustine Historic Inns. Sure, St. Augustine’s nightlife offers an array of unique options. However, what better way to pair your picture-perfect night than with a variety of great music. Check out our blog about live music in downtown St. Augustine to help you decide where to go.

If you’re looking for constructive activities…

Just because the sun sets and the moon rises doesn’t mean that local shops, attractions, and tours are closed for business. So, get to exploring after you’ve had a bite to eat and accomplish some of the constructive activities you have on your St. Augustine itinerary!

Ghost Tours

Are you brave enough to hunt for ghosts in St. Augustine? With over four centuries of history, many unwanted visitors have adopted the Old City as their permanent home. Now, they lurk the streets at night waiting to be unveiled. If you’re looking for things to do at night and aren’t afraid of the dark, a tour with Ghost Augustine is the perfect way to spend the late evening hours.

Walking Tours

On the other hand, if you’re slightly unwary of the city’s ghostly residents you can always embark on a walking night tour with St. Augustine Historic Walking Tours. You can choose from lengthy walking tours to short walking tours and everything in between.

Shopping on St. George Street

St. Augustine’s small-town feel can often mislead visitors into thinking that shops, restaurants, and bars close early during the weeknights. On the contrary, many boutiques, restaurants, as well as coffee and dessert shops stay open until 10 pm. So, you’ll have plenty of options if you’re looking to spend the late evening someplace other than a bar. We personally recommend shopping on St. George Street for an array of boutiques, gift shops, clothing stores, and memorabilia.

We hope you enjoyed this list of things to do at night in downtown St. Augustine. Don’t forget, you can always rely on your inn keeper for advice about fun things to do at night or any time of the day.
