Nothing pairs better with a relaxing getaway in a gorgeous Gulf Coast setting like Gulf Shores than awesome music played by talented local artists. One of the best parts of visiting Gulf Shores is the city’s abundance of laid-back bars and music hotspots. See some of the greatest up-and-coming musicians around for yourself firsthand at the neat places we’ve listed out below!
Perhaps the most obvious choice to start off this list would be the Wharf Amphitheater. As the number one destination for live concerts performed by the biggest names in music, the Wharf Amphitheater is a popular choice for concert-goers who love that arena-style musical experience, housing just under ten thousand seats.
Even though Flora-Bama straddles the state line between Florida and Alabama and is technically situated across the state line, this carefree and fun bar is the area’s classic roadhouse and home to a number of small stages that are frequented by local musicians on nearly a nightly basis.
A two-part restaurant and club, Live Bait offers a good selection of live music that samples from older music to newer top-40 radio hits. The schedule for live music is seasonal, so you’ll want to call ahead and make sure that they’ve got someone lined up to play before heading over if you’re visiting during the off-season.
No list of live music in Gulf Shores would be complete without mentioning Lulu’s! A popular spot for both visiting and local musicians, Lulu’s is dedicated to its favorite performers, such as Alabama native and past winner of the reality singing competition show American Idol Taylor Hicks. Lulu’s is also known for having delicious food, so be sure to grab a bite while you’re here!
Rounding off our list is The Hangout. A cool bar with inside and outdoor seating and a perfect location right on the beach, The Hangout literally built its reputation on its live music offerings. In fact, they’re so well-known for it, they even host an annual music festival each May! Kick back and unwind with some great tunes, good beer, and a sunset view of the Gulf of Mexico.
