While most people come to Naples, Florida for its balmy weather, nature preserves, and 80 championship golf courses, they stay for its uniquely vibrant city and nightlife. And nothing concludes a gorgeous summer day in Naples better than an evening spent relaxing with friends over a few drinks.
Below are some of the local's favorite places in Naples to cool off with a cocktail:
The Top Places to Get a Cocktail in Naples
1. Osteria Tulia
Enjoy a fresh Italian craft beer or cocktail in the old world Italian farmhouse setting of Osteria Tulia, one of Naples’ best Italian restaurants. Recommended beverages include the Almond “Pepe Rosso” IPA and the Fiore cocktail, made with elderflower St. Germain and crushed raspberries.
2. HobNob Kitchen & Bar
This modern and upbeat restaurant on Fifth Avenue combines European and American influences into an eclectic atmosphere. Relax with the signature Nobtini and pretend that you’re spending the evening in the city at the HobNob Kitchen & Bar.
3. The Grill
Located inside the Ritz-Carlton, the Grill’s soft gray dining room is inspired by the Gulf of Mexico after a summer rain. We recommend the Sloe Gin Fizz, which is infused with cucumber and lemon peel.
4. Sea Salt
With an extensive wine cellar, it’s easy to spend an afternoon tasting your way around the world’s major viticulture regions at Sea Salt. The menu changes daily, allowing in-house sommelier Liset Zelaya the opportunity to explore the full range of the restaurant’s broad wine list in creating menu pairings.
5. The Bevy
Offering new American cuisine in Downtown Naples, The Bevy has become a hot hangout for evening cocktails thanks to its daily happy hour and extensive collection of wines and liquors. You can enjoy a drink by the bar or socialize in its unique indoor-outdoor spaces with vertical gardens.
6. The Pub Naples
Located near Mercato, the Pub Naples is the perfect place to stop in for a casual drink after a day of shopping. Choose from an extensive list of beers from England, Ireland, and Scotland, or savor a fine single malt scotch (with a side of fish and chips).
7. South Avenue Bar
One of the newest cocktail lounges on 5th Avenue South in Naples, South Avenue Bar has wowed with its unique drinks, modern interior design, and decadent selection of elevated bar favorites like pizza and flatbreads.

Enjoy a Bellini and bruschetta on the elegant patio of Alberto’s on Fifth Avenue, in the heart of downtown Naples. The early al fresco menu provides an upscale twist on traditional happy hour.
