Palafox Street has become a local favorite hangout spot over the years as Pensacola continues to grow. More and more local restaurants and breweries are offering fun nightlife. Palafox Street also hosts various events throughout the year including a Cinco De Mayo Celebration. We highly recommend you check out Perfect Plain, the area’s newest brewpub. As an added bonus they offer Trivia on Monday nights for anyone who loves a good competition! Palafox Street is a must-see during your next vacation to Pensacola Beach.
The Elbow Room
The Elbow Room is a bit of a hidden gem in Pensacola Beach. Here you will find bar service and fun arcade-like games including pinball machines, shuffleboard, darts, bar bowling, and more! The Elbow Room is a staple in Pensacola not only because of the many activities to enjoy but also because it has been operating since 1963. As you enter, you will be taken back in time with the eclectic feel of the neighborhood bar.
Driving through downtown Pensacola, you are sure to find several food trucks spread out through the city. The majority of them offer outdoor seating which makes it a fun place to hang out after spending your day in the sun. From bagels to fish tacos, there are food trucks for every meal of the day! Our favorite food truck is Nomadic Eats, an Asian Fusion inspired dining experience.
Pensacola has become the place to be if you are hoping to spend your days in the sun and spend your evenings enjoying the exciting nightlife.
