With its warm weather and white-sand beaches, the Alabama Gulf Coast is a popular vacation spot for many travelers. The area offers an abundance of condominiums, hotels, and beach houses ranging from low-key to resort style.

But while beach-lounging and condo amenities are big pluses on a vacation, they don’t necessarily make the entire vacation, particularly for lively people who aren’t ready to call it a night when the sun goes down. Fortunately, Alabama’s Gulf Coast has more to offer than just beaches and resorts.

From live music and bars to dueling pianos and major concerts, there’s always something happening after hours, and the area presents a mix of both old and new nightlife hot spots. First-time visitors looking for some night action should check out websites offering local events calendars, such as, which provides an interactive calendar of music and nightlife events as well as information on accommodations with Brett/Robinson.

Long-time visitors to the Gulf Shores/Orange Beach area can still enjoy many of their favorite hangout spots from years ago—such as The Hangout in Gulf Shores, which has been around since the late 1950s and is still a popular site for dining and late-night beach parties with live entertainment. The Flora-Bama Lounge & Package, around since 1964, also offers live music on a nightly basis. This beach-side oyster bar, located on the Florida-Alabama border, is considered the “last great American roadhouse.” And visitors who enjoy karaoke will want to check out the Pink Pony Pub in Gulf Shores, which dates to 1956.

Gulf Coast vacationers will find plenty of newer nightlife venues, too. Live Bait and its sister location Live Bait at the Wharf in Orange Beach feature live music and other nighttime events, such as Snowbird Dinner and Dance nights. Also at The Wharf, Rum Runners offers live interactive entertainment such as dueling piano shows and karaoke. Finally, SanRoc Cay is an ideal spot for a variety of activities, including shopping, dining and, of course, listening to live music, which takes several nights a week in the courtyard.
