|You just have to love Sharky's on the Pier. It is located right on Venice Beach and has been selected as the Best Florida Beach Bar for 2013. Tiki huts provide the shade, and the tiki bar is action packed. Sadly, there are not too many bars in this area where you can eat, drink and be merry while on the sandy beach of the Gulf of Mexico.
Sharky's must be visited by all looking for great Florida beach bars.
Sharky's is undergoing major renovation and expansion. According to their web site, the existing restaurant and deck will still be a big part of the "Sharky's Experience" even after expansion is complete. Check out the renderings for the new and bigger Sharky's.
There is music on every day of the week at Sharky's. Often they have some kind of other event that provides entertainment. There is a 2 story deck that allows you to look down on the tiki bar and out onto the Gulf and fishing pier.
The sunsets at this Florida beach bar are amazing. Walking the pier one night we heard the tale of an 8 foot Bull Shark being caught the day before off the pier. That story alone will make you want to go get a drink at this Florida beach bar.
The band was playing Bob Marley's Three LIttle Birds. We were sitting in colorful beach chairs and sipping gin and tonics while watching couples dance. What a great night!! You can hear live bands Wednesday through Sunday.
Did you know that Venice Beach is the shark tooth capital of the world??? When you are not eating, drinking, dancing and laughing, you can be wandering the beach in search of shark's teeth. But beware of swimming too far out in the Gulf......there is a reason Sharky's got it's name. Sharky's is a Florida beach bar landmark.
Comment On a Florida Beach Bar
|Sharky's on the Pier is THE BEST Florida beach bar (and restaurant), smack dab on the Gulf of Mexico. No one else comes close.
