Advice appreciated for May 2-6 guys weekend

Three 40-something single guys coming to Sandestin for a long tennis & party weekend, May 2-6. Did something similar a few years back and had a great time, but hoping to maybe check out a few different food and drink places this time.

Last time around, we typically hit AJs for happy hour and then finished night at Sandestin. Might we change things up this time around and head down 30A? We'll for sure be hiring a car to keep things safe.

Would appreciate any advice on best nightspots to hit on Thurs, Fri, Sat and Sun eves. Prefer places with live music and outdoor setting.

Thanks in advance for any guidance. We take our guys weekend seriously and want to make the most of each evening. ;-)

Don't know if you are into classic cars - but that is the weekend for Burning up the Beaches (may3-5) at the Boardwalk at Okaloosa Island. After the show I am sure the muscle car guys and girls will be hanging at the bars right there on Okaloosa Island like The Swamp or Howl at the Moon.

Head down 30-A for happy hour at Bud&alley's in seaside, then head back west to grayton beach and go to the Red Bar.

For 30-A, I would recommend Bud and Alley's rooftop bar, The Red Bar and the 2 following:

I'm not sure the last time you were at Sandestin but Grand Boulevard has a few great places for happy hour. Mitchells, Cantina Loredo and Tommy Bahamas. Have fun!
