(727) 441-6875 | Website: shephards.com
Shephard’s is the hottest party beach because its bar and a private beach are all in one smokin’ fun spot. Boaters drop anchor wade to the shore and party all day and night at this hip and young hang out. The beach Tiki Bar & Margarita Grill offers nonstop music, tropical drinks and lots of half-naked bodies getting drunk on Shepard’s private beach or great pool. After the sun goes down meander over to the Wave nightclub featuring awesome live hip hop bands and deejays or you can dance the night away at the trendy Sunset Lounge. Tip: if you get too drunk you can always get a room Shepherd’s because they are a hotel too.
