Living in Sarasota has its perks. My favorite is how close we are to the beaches and how easy it is to get a drink. With so many unique outdoor beach bars in Sarasota, it can be a challenge to pick the best one with drink specials and a view of the ocean.

Check out the best beach bars in Sarasota and Siesta Key if you want to feel the sand between your toes while you drink a cold one. For more of the best bars in Sarasota, 941Area is your go-to guide for all nightlife in Sarasota and Manatee Counties.
