Miami-style nightlife comes to Naples

Naples may be renowned for sand, sea, and sun, but there’s a whole other Naples to discover after the sun goes down. We ditched our flip-flops and got out our dance shoes to give you a taste of some of Naples’ hottest night spots, from dance clubs and karaoke spots to a cigar bar and a hookah lounge. Here are seven great places to take your party:

Alto Live Jazz Kitchen — This new supper club garners applause not just for fine food but for great music, complemented by the club’s state-of-the-art sounds system. Count on Alto for live jazz every night!

Blue Martini Lounge is the Naples incarnation of one of the glitziest nightclub chains in the country. With 42 martini types and a choice of settings (patio, stage, and VIP lounge) the Blue Martini is probably Naples’ best known club.

The Blue Monkey Bar and Grill — If it wouldn’t be vacation with out karaoke, The Blue Monkey is the place to go. They offer live entertainment Friday and Saturday and a karaoke microphone on Wednesday nights.

Burn Cigar Bar by Rocky Patel (at the Mercato) focuses on the enjoyment of fine cigars and spirits in a nightclub setting. Check out the walk-in humidor stocked with Rocky Patel cigars and other top cigar brands. Members can arrange for private lockers in the humidor for their own cigars.

Kazbar is Naples’ only hookah bar — an exotic addition to the club scene. Open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, Kazbar caters to the late-night crowd (4 a.m. on the weekends) with smoking, spirits and superb DJs.

Osetra Champagne, Caviar & Sushi Bar — An exclusive night spot on Naples’ famous Fifth Avenue, Osetra serves sushi and drinks until 2 a.m. every night; and there’s live music on Saturdays.

Paddy Murphy’s is the “go to” bar for many fans of traditional Naples nightlife. It offers an convivial Irish pub atmosphere, live entertainment most nights, plus a late-night DJ on weekends.
