Saint Augustine Nightlife – Clubs, Bars & Nightlife Tips

Saint Augustine Nightlife

Scarlett O’Hara’s is located in a nice old house, giving it a quaint and cozy atmosphere. It has three bars: one upstairs, one downstairs and one outside. There are tables outside on the porch for smokers. The upstairs part of Scarlett’s has nice couches and comfy seats where you can gather with a group of friends and chat. It feels almost like being at home.

Scarlett’s attracts college kids and younger people, so as the night goes on it does get quite loud. They also have karaoke. The bar serves pub food, so you won’t have to leave if you get hungry. Note that Scarlett’s, like all bars in St. Augustine, closes at 12:30 am. Last call is at midnight.

Trade Winds Tavern

This is not the kind of place you want to go to for a lively, in-depth, intellectual conversation. It can get very busy and very loud. If, on the other hand, you want to listen to some amazing live music and party, then it’s probably the greatest bar on the planet.

There’s one downside – there’s only one urinal in the men’s room. You might have to wait in line.

Tavern de Gallo

The Taberna del Gallo is located in the Colonial Spanish Quarter on St George Street. It was established in 1734 and was one of about 40 bars in the area by 1740. Today, they serve a small assortment of wines, beers and sangria along with soft drinks. Sometimes you will see people inside in period dress. It is lit with torches to add to the authenticity. Hours are 12 PM to 5:15 pm Wednesday and Thursday; 12 pm to 9 pm Friday and Saturday; and 1 pm to 5:15 pm on Sunday. They are closed Monday and Tuesday.
