The 4 Best Bars in Gulfport, FL
- O’Maddy’s – Who doesn’t love O’Maddy’s? This brilliant bar offers it all: an amazing atmosphere, ocean views, and some seriously good food made with fresh ingredients. Add in an extensive drink menu, live music, and karaoke nights, and you’ve got one of our favorite bars in Gulfport. It’s a great place to hang out on the outdoor patio and mingle with your new friends-to-be.
- Salty’s – Salty’s, like O’Maddy’s, has a big outdoor patio. It, however, focuses on great drinks, big screen TVs, and lots of games. This is the place to be if you’re looking for video games, pool tables, dart boards, or cornhole. It, too, offers live music several nights per week, oceanfront views, and a fun crowd of people. As an added bonus, you can take your pup! This is especially relevant, as the Historic Peninsula Inn is also pet-friendly.
- Neptune’s is quite different than O’Maddy’s and Salty’s. Neptune’s focuses on fresh seafood and delicious Greek cuisine. It, too, has an outdoor patio overlooking the water, and they’re famous for their delicious, reasonably-priced drinks! If you’d like to learn more about Neptune’s, you can view their menu online.
- Last but definitely not least, there’s Isabelle’s. Isabelle’s is a bar and restaurant located right here in the Historic Peninsula Inn. We’re proud to say that it’s a multi-award winning restaurant (winner of Rand McNally’s “Best of the Beaches” and “Best of the Road” awards) featuring some seriously scrumptious New Southern cuisine, local craft beer, and a collection of delicious wines. We also offer live music 4 nights per week. On Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, pianist John Shirley tickles the ivories. On Saturday nights, singer Dale Williams belts out Sinatra and a variety of other favorites. So, stop on by for a drink, a fantastic meal, and live entertainment! View Isabelle’s menu.
