Guide to Panama City Florida



When you visit Panama City, be sure to roam around and take in the nightlife! There is something for everyone to enjoy.


The Breakers - is the area's premier supper club, with unsurpassed Gulf views and music for dining and dancing. You'll swear the King has risen from the grave, as "Elvis Presley" and other impersonators at Clutch Rock 'n' Roll Cafe perform here. The show is worth the cover of $10 to $15 per person. The Beachfront Harpoon Harry's Waterfront Cafe is part of the same complex. 12627 Front Beach Rd. Phone 850-234-6060


Club La Vela - is right on the beach with a bikini-contest kind of atmosphere and one of Florida's largest nightclubs; 8813 Thomas Dr. (tel. 850/234-3866),


Sharkey's - is another local favorite located  on the Gulf that offers music, food and good times for all. 15201 Front Beach Rd. (tel. 850/235-2420).


Spinnaker Beach Club & Paradise Grill - is known for live music and the delicious food. The waitress said the hamburgers and peanut butter pie are the best things on the menu. She was right!

Skip the appetizers, and order the Hawaiian burger (topped with pineapple and a teriyaki glaze) or the Black & Bleu burger (topped with bacon and blue cheese). And by all means, save room for the creamy peanut butter pie. 8795 Thomas Drive; (850) 234-7882.


Schooners Last Local Beach Club - has an amazing view of the cool white sand and emerald waves, a meal here is the next best thing to a cookout on the beach.

Pineapple Willy's - is located right on the water and it offers seafood and the basics, including ribs in a bucket and a special tuna dip.

You’re at the beach, so have some good food and a Coke and enjoy the ocean views. 9875 South Thomas Drive; (850) 235-0928.


The Boatyard - offers live music and inventive seafood dishes attract diners to this modern take on a beach classic. Don’t miss the Key lime pie on a stick and lobster-stuffed grouper. 5323 North Lagoon Drive; (850) 235-0737.
