The Top 4 Places to Go Dancing in Destin Florida
Couples who love to dance will not be disappointed when they vacation in Destin, FL! Our Emerald Coast city is home to a number of wonderful bars and music venues where you and your sweetheart can cut a rug late into the evening. To help you make the most of your next getaway, the Henderson Park Inn has put together a guide to four of the best places to go dancing in Destin Florida.
1. AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar
AJ’s Seafood & Oyster Bar offers live music seven nights a week! Located right on Destin Harbor, this popular dancing destination hosts some of the Emerald Coast’s best local musicians and boasts a phenomenal house band, Black Eyed Blonde. Over the weekend, AJ’s typically brings in touring bands from out of state. In addition to the excellent live music, AJ’s also has a great DJ who sometimes spins tracks until as late as 4 a.m.
2. Bric à Brac
Bric à Brac is another one of our favorite places to go dancing in Destin Florida. This restaurant and nightclub is famous for its theme nights, which include Latin Nights, Hip Hop Nights, and European Nights. The Latin Nights are particularly fun because guests can try dancing styles that they may not be familiar with, such as salsa, reggaeton, merengue, and bachata. Bric à Brac even offers salsa dancing classes two nights a week, so aspiring dancers can learn the ropes before they hit the floor.
3. The Funky Blues Shack
Voted the Best Live Music Venue on the Emerald Coast, The Funky Blues Shack is a fantastic dueling piano bar in Destin. The talented pianists at the Blues Shack take requests from the audience, so guests can hear toe-tapping renditions of their favorite tunes. The Funky Blues Shack features a full bar with 28 beers on tap and a dance floor. If you get hungry during your night out on the town, you can order a tasty meal from the Graffiti Restaurant, which is attached to The Funky Blues Shack.
4. Tailfins Ale House & Oyster Bar
Heading over to Tailfins Ale House & Oyster Bar for a night of dancing is always a good decision! Tailfins regularly hosts live music or a DJ on its open-air (covered) third floor and on its lower level on the HarborWalk. Many of the bands who play at Tailfins come from Atlanta or Nashville, making the venue one of the best places to catch up-and-coming musical acts. Overlooking the harbor, Tailfins offers truly spectacular views for guests to soak up when they’re not dancing the night away.
