Gulf Gate Entertainment
Gulf Gate is an eclectic entertainment mecca, second only to downtown Sarasota in the number of shops, restaurants and bars per square foot. Located just south of Stickney Point (Clark Road) and Tamiami Trail, Gulf Gate is a refreshingly diverse mix of businesses, more than 150 within two blocks, representing international culture, cuisine and plain old good times. At the Southwest Corner of Gulf Gate is a unique shopping area that is a mix of little galleries, eateries, crafts stores, and gourmet specialty shops. With blocks of privately-owned stores just waiting to be explored, this area makes for a fun day of treasure hunting.
While there are terrific places for breakfast and lunch, come for dinner and enjoy fine English pub fare, Thai delicacies, Italian specialties, fresh Gulf seafood and French pastries. Then explore the night spots on Gulf Gate and Superior Streets, and be prepared to be wowed by the diversity of ambiance, music, clientele and late-night snacks.
Most of the bars in Gulf Gate serve at least a couple of varieties of beer, but if you're a real craft beer junky, head straight to Mr. Beery's with its 24 rotating taps, cask-conditioned ale and flavor-infused beers. Take a hike around the corner, and you'll find the Sarasota Brewing Company, which brews its beers on site. Fresh! For live music, you'll want to check out each venue personally. From punk to country, you'll find something to fit your musical tastes. Several of the bars are open until the wee hours, serving portions and potions to satisfy those late-night cravings.
