Restaurants with Live Music
We're big fans of live music, and the Sarasota-Bradenton area fills the bill generously with plenty of hot spots. If you're looking for some entertainment with your meal, try any of the following venues. The restaurants are located anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour from Casa Calm – several are by the coast – so check the address and calendar before venturing out. Suggestion: why not stop at one on your way back from the beach. Not only will you get to hear some great live music, but you'll also get to enjoy the beautiful sunsets that the Gulf Coast has to offer.
