Jazz, theater or dancing?

If you are a jazz lover, Sarasota is the city for you. There are jazz concerts in churches, theatres, auditoriums, parks and at famous St. Armand's Circle.

The Jazz Club of Sarasota offers a collection of concerts and festivals throughout the year. These include The Sarasota Jazz Festival, Joys of Jazz in December, their popular Saturday afternoon series Jazz Club Jams, and Jazz at Noon. You can check their annual calendar at www.jazzclubsarasota.com .

Or, try ballroom dancing at any of the most popular dance centers such as Sarasota Dance Center, Ballroom Sarasota, Gotta Dance or The Dance Palace, the perfect destination whether you are a novice or a pro!

Downtown Sarasota offers several taverns and pubs and the Gator Club has reasonably priced drinks and quality entertainment. The club’s main floor hosts live bands and draws a baby-boomer, party crowd. The second-floor, Private Reserve, features DJ music and attracts  a younger clientele.
