Looking for a lively and historic spot to grab a drink in Sarasota? Look no further than The Gator Club. Housed in a building that dates back to the 1920s, The Gator Club has been a local institution for decades. The atmosphere is classic and inviting, with plenty of cozy nooks and crannies to settle into and enjoy your evening. One of the highlights of The Gator Club is the upstairs whiskey bar, which boasts an impressive selection of top-shelf whiskeys from around the world. Whether you're a connoisseur or just looking to try something new, the knowledgeable staff will be happy to guide you through the extensive selection. But The Gator Club is more than just a great place to enjoy a drink. Live music is a staple here, with local and regional acts taking the stage most nights of the week. The acoustics are great, and the energy is always high. If you're looking for a place to celebrate a holiday, The Gator Club has you covered. They throw some of the best block parties in town, complete with live music, drink specials, and plenty of festive decorations. One thing to note is that The Gator Club has been a smoke-free establishment for several years. But don't worry, there's still plenty of room to smoke outside, and you can even bring your drink with you. Overall, The Gator Club is a great spot to relax and have fun. So grab some friends and head over for a night of live music, great drinks, and good times.

Great event. Next Halloween plan on this being your destination. They set up the party outside their bar. A must bucket list event

The Gator Club on main street, Sarasota has a great atmosphere, and super cool visitors. Wednesday is karaoke night for the ones who like to sing a tune. Gator Club has a bingo night as well, you can win sexy adult prizes. Music is good, DJ' s and band's playing (ask them what night they play) . This hidden gem is located in a beautiful aria with restaurants and places to have a great time I met a cool security guy while sitting outside. Thank you Caesar! Hope to visit soon again!

Checked out Johnny Diamond at Gators last month and had to stay for their whole show. Loved their retro selection and personal spin. It was busy and happening but not packed. No wait for cocktails, room to hang out, and plenty of dancing. $5 cover was a bargain. Nice to have music that rocks and plays past 11 pm. The Gator Club certainly provides a rare and needed service to the Sarasota community and I thank them. Running a 2 AM dance club with live music (and DJ upstairs) can’t be easy. It gives service industry folk a chance to enjoy weekends as well. Almost every other place is empty and closed before midnight.

don’t order the rum and coke it tastes like cold medicine. also waiting for wednesday karaoke for almost 2 hours and they didn’t tell us it cuts off at 1:30 so we waited for over 90 minutes without a warning. they let people pay to cut the line for karaoke too so be prepared for that. were really rude about the wait and pretty much everything else. they atmosphere would have been better if the experience was nicer.
