Jimmy B's is always packed with fun loving and happy people. There is always a band playing, and these bands never disappoint. The wait staff is always efficient and have a sense of humor. How could you work in a beach bar and not have a sense of humor? It happens, but not at this Florida beach bar.
During the day, the bands play outside on the beach side deck. Jimmy B's is known for having some the best local area bands. We have never heard a bad band there. At 7:30 p.m., the bands move inside to entertain you, but you can still hear them outside. Food and drink are easily available in both locations. At sunset, this Florida beach bar serves Sunset Shooters. Enjoy a shooter and the sunset. They are both free. Jimmy B's has a prime location on the Gulf of Mexico for watching sunsets.
We always jump up and head to the boardwalk to get closer to the sunset and enjoy our Sunset Shooter. Is the sunset really better closer to the shore? We seem to think so and so do a lot of other people.
There is room to dance both inside and outside. Put on your dancing shoes or kick off your flip flops and dance to the music of great local bands around. The crowd is full of locals and tourists. Everyone is friendly and having a good time. Relax at this Florida beach bar, listen to a great band and enjoy your cold drink. Jimmy B's is the perfect Florida beach bar. Of course it is, and that is why it was voted the Number One Beach Bar for 2011, 2012 and 2014-2016. Jimmy B's was a Top 10 Florida Beach Bar for 2013.
The best part of beach bars is meeting new friends or sharing the experience with old friends. Everyone loves this Florida beach bar. On Saturdays and Sundays you can catch live music 3 times a day starting at 11:00 a.m. Imagine that!!! This is one of the many reasons why Jimmy B's ranks top in Florida beach bars.
Jimmy B’s has been ranked the number one beach bar several times because it is on the beach, has live music two or three times a day, every day andthe food and drink are good and well prepared. Couple these things with a great Gulf of Mexico sunset, and you have everything you need for a super beach bar and a wonderful time.
In 2013, Jimmy B’s got even better. The deck has been expanded, putting patrons even closer to the beach. The old seating area was transformed with the addition of comfortable couches and chairs and waterfall tables. The stage was moved to the beach side of the deck. If you haven't' been to Jimmy B's lately, it's time to return and enjoy the new look and the atmosphere. Nice!
