UWF Junior Brianna Duncan said, “My favorite place to go is O’Riley’s, because it is a lot of fun and the music is always good, too.” On most nights at O’Riley’s, there is no cover charge for anyone 18 and older, and students over 21 can take advantage of drink specials.

Some of the draws to Wild Greg’s is their huge dance floor for line dancing and a mechanical bull for anyone brave enough to take a ride. They are open from 7 p.m. to 3 a.m. Wednesday-Saturday and have nightly specials. Although on Fridays and Saturdays Wild Greg’s Saloon is strictly 21 and older, they do provide a college discount on Thursdays with a college ID.

UWF Senior Collin Knight said, “Well, I personally like Wild Greg’s because they’ve always got people line dancing and they have the bull to ride. It’s something different from every other bar or club around here.” So if you are looking for a place to break out your boots and dance, Wild Greg’s is the place for you.

3. Seville Quarter

You would be hard-pressed to find anyone in Pensacola who hasn’t heard of Seville Quarter. Located at 130 E. Government St., the historic building is a restaurant by day and a bar and club by night. The layout has seven rooms, each with a different name providing a unique experience and something for everyone to enjoy. In some of the rooms they have karaoke, dancing, billiards, a piano bar and beer pong.

UWF senior Larry Bell said “Seville is one of my favorite places downtown. I take all of my friends there because I really enjoy the atmosphere. The rustic, cool building also adds to the experience, making it unique to Pensacola.”

Though most nights are 21 and older, on Thursdays they have college night for students 18 and older, where you can show your student ID and get in for a discounted price. To keep up with their rotating drink specials, visit their Facebook page here.

4. Cabana Nightclub

At 7164 N. Ninth Ave., Cabana Nightclub (more commonly known as Cabanas) is close to UWF, and because anyone 18 and older can get in every day of the week, it has become a favorite among UWF students. Cabana’s advertises “the longest happy hour in the entire state,” beginning at 11 a.m. and ending at 8 p.m.

UWF senior Michael Krueger said, “I honestly enjoy going to Cabanas, because especially my freshman year I felt a lot of my fraternity’s [Sigma Alpha Epsilon] presence there., I felt welcomed and comfortable, so I always had fun.” Cabanas hosts tons of events, such as foam parties and ladies’ nights, with each event having a drink special of its own. Also, every Friday evening is college night where you get in for free with a college ID.

5. Vinyl Music Hall

Vinyl Music Hall, located at 2 S. Palafox St., is a live music bar that brings in both local and big artists to play. Though this isn’t technically a nightly bar, a lot of UWF students keep their eyes open for bands they would like to see. Famous artists such as Ludacris and Wiz Kalifa have played at Vinyl Music Hall in the past.

Senior Bridget Walker said, “Vinyl has live music and a relaxed atmosphere and speedy bartenders, what’s not to like?” You have to be at least 18 years old to get in for most concerts, and if you are over 21 there is a full bar. You can look for upcoming performances and purchase tickets here.

Even though there are many areas in Pensacola where you can spend your evenings, you might want to consider going to one of these five student favorites.
