While most people come to Naples, Florida for its balmy weather, nature preserves, and 80 championship golf courses, they stay for its vibrant atmosphere. And nothing concludes a summer day in Naples better than an evening spent relaxing with friends over a few drinks. Below are London Bay Homes’ Top 10 favorite places in Naples to cool off with a cocktail:
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.
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.
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 viticultural 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.
Experience the romance of Italy with a glass of wine at Sale e Pepe Terrace. This outdoor restaurant embodies sophistication, offering authentic ambiance and Gulf of Mexico views. Enjoy a bottle of vintage red and toast to the beauty of Naples, Florida.
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).
Winner of the “Best Bartenders in Southwest Florida” award from Gulfshore Life Magazine, the Avenue Wine Café is the perfect place to take guests from out of town for a sampling of wine, craft beer, and artisan cheese.
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.
With stunning waterfront views of Venetian Bay, an evening at Bayside is an experience to remember. Order a bottle of bubbles and unwind in the cool Florida breeze.
Named the “Best Beachfront Bar in Naples” by the Travel Channel, you can’t miss the Sunset Beach Bar and Grill, located in the Naples Beach Hotel. Watch the sunset, relax, and take in the Southwest Florida lifestyle with a tropical Mai Tai.
