462 5th Ave S, Naples, FL 34102
This first place should come as no surprise at number one to anyone who has had the pleasure of dining there. Bar Tulia is one of my absolute favorite places to get drinks in Naples because of the rustic and homey atmosphere alongside the mind-blowingly delicious food and drinks.
You can find Bar Tulia off of 5th Avenue where all the other incredible shops and restaurants are, not far from Cambier Park and 5th Avenue Beach.
What I love about the bar at Bar Tulia is that you almost feel as if you’re in someone’s home somewhere in the Italian countryside being served hand-crafted cocktails and artisan pizza.
Empire Plaza, 600 Goodlette-Frank Rd, Naples, FL 34102
Taking the second-place spot on my list of bars in Naples to try is none other than Bambusa Bar & Grill. This place is awesome and I absolutely love coming here for drinks on the weekends or after work.
Bambusa Bar & Grill has all the food and drinks you could ever want in a fun, informal setting with really great service.
You can find Bambusa Bar & Grill off of Goodlette-Frank Road near the Naples Airport and the LAke Park neighborhood. Be sure to stop on by if you’re ever in the area and you need a little something to wet your whistle.
9114 Strada Pl #12105, Naples, FL 34108
This next place, Blue Martini Lounge, is located inside the luxurious Mercato shopping mall off of Tamiami Trail North that Naples has become known for. There’s no place to part like Blue Martini when you’re in town, it’s just such an electric and vibrant atmosphere that you’ll want to stay until the sun comes up.
Not only is Blue Martini Lounge a Naples favorite of mine when it comes to grabbing drinks, but the food here is superb as well. They offer a wide variety of tapas dishes that are perfect for a quick bite in between cocktails.
280 Vanderbilt Beach Rd, Naples, FL 34108
Gumbo Limbo is the next place I’d like to talk about in Naples when it comes to grabbing drinks. This place is located right on the water, so you’d be hard-pressed to find a more scenic location to hang out and drink at. Not to mention, Gumbo Limbo is located inside of The Ritz-Carlton, Naples, a world-famous resort that you should definitely check out.
When you get to Gumbo Limbo, you’ll be greeted with a fantastic menu full of seafood and craft cocktails as well as countless wine and beer options. I recommend something tropical or frozen for your drink.
9118 Strada Pl, Naples, FL 34108
The Pub in Naples is such an awesome place to get drinks when you’re in the city and you want a fun, British-themed experience complete with some of the most delectable fish n’ chips you can get anywhere besides the foggy streets of London.
This place is a haven for beer-lovers like myself. The menu here at The Pub features ales, IPAs, lagers, sour ales, hard seltzers, ciders, and even more refreshing choices. Don’t forget to check out some whiskey from the featured distillery, or you can get a whole flight of whiskey samples to try if that’s more your style.
27908 Hickory Blvd, Bonita Springs, FL 34134
Up next is Doc’s Beach House and I promise you’re going to fall in love with this place once you step foot inside. You can find Doc’s Beach House off of Hickory Boulevard near Bonita Beach Park in the Barefoot Beach neighborhood. It’s a perfect stop during a day at the beach for a cold cocktail to cool you off.
This popular surfside establishment boasts one of the most impressive selections of draft beer, bottled beer, hard seltzers, and craft beers. You could spend all night trying new beers and never have the same one twice!
Clam Pass Beach Path, Naples, FL 34108
Rhode’s End is part of the Naples Grande Beach Resort in Clam Pass Park, one of the most beautiful beaches you’ll ever see in your life. This little bar is nestled into the soft sugar sand just steps away from the water, so it’s amazingly convenient for anyone enjoying a day in the sun.
I always go for a tropical cocktail like a strawberry daiquiri or a pina colada, something that’s frozen and refreshing to beat that famous Florida heat, but they have a full liquor bar so there’s no limit to what you can order, really.
203 Capri Blvd, Naples, FL 34113
Capri Fish House is located on the Isle of Capri in Naples, just north of Marco Island. This restaurant is right on the water and you get a beautiful view of Johnson Island while you enjoy refreshing cocktails and plenty of delicious food.
I always find myself ordering something tropical and refreshing because it’s usually so hot outside being this far south, but they have tons of options when it comes to drinks that you can have anything you might be craving. Be sure to come in during the daily happy hour here at Capri Fish House from 2:30 pm to 5:30 pm.
475 5th St S, Naples, FL 34102
This next place is another one of my favorite places to get drinks when I’m in Naples near 5th Avenue called Sidebar. This bar is kind of tucked-off and doesn’t get as much attention as it deserves for being such a fun place to hang out.
The interior of Sidebar is classy and refined, yet at night it takes on a cozier, warmer vibe that’s so welcoming and relaxing that you’ll forget all your troubles on the outside.
Absolute care and attention is out into every cocktail on their menu, so each drink is its own experience that’s been carefully crafted by expert bartenders.
255 13th Ave S, Naples, FL 34102
Not far from the iconic Naples Pier and the picturesque Naples Beach is Old Naples Pub, a really great destination for drinks in the city that you can find inside the Third Street South shopping mall.
Whether it’s food or drink, Old Naples Pub never disappoints, which is probably why it’s managed to stay around for so long. I love coming here for a cold pint and an order of their traditional fish and chips, but they’ve got all the classic, comforting bar food options on their menu as well, not to mention all the refreshing beer you can ever want.
2555 Tamiami Trail N, Naples, FL 34103
Last, but not least, is Harold’s Place Chickee Bar and Grill. This bar is located inside the Gulfcoast Inn, overlooking the pool area, so if you’re lounging around the hotel pool all day, this is a great place to grab a drink nearby.
I love Harold’s Place because they have the best selection of frozen drinks and tropical cocktails that make me feel like I’m on vacation, even if I’m not. They also offer lots of different house martinis like an appletini, cosmo, and some other, more unique variations. Of course, they make a really great Long Island iced tea as well.
Naples knows its way around a bar, that’s for sure. When it comes time to let loose and kick your feet up with a drink in your hand, there’s no better place to do so than at one of these amazing bars around town.
