At Gypsy Cab Company Bar & Grill the owners advertise "urban cuisine" to describe their modern preparations of primarily seafood, yet they still have poultry and steak selections which fit the bill as well. The kitchen also churns out amazing homemade soups like black bean or smoky sweet potato in addition to many others depending on the day. If you're staying in historic St. Augustine, the restaurant is ultra convenient because it's located just across the Bridge of Lions on Anastasia Boulevard.

McLean's Public House is a British pub in the grandest old English style. Though small and dim, the service is friendly and the beer and pub grub is tasty and reasonably priced for the heart of the tourist district.

Cellar 6 is a showcase for St Augustine's burgeoning wine culture. As the name indicates, their cellar is more than amply stocked, and they are happy to arrange tastings as well as samples by glass or bottle. This is an excellent place to acquaint yourself with some of St Augustine's local vintages and to spend an evening checking out some hot local talents playing jazz or contemporary music.
The Tradewinds Lounge bills itself as the oldest club in the oldest city in America. Whether true or not, the bar is still located in a charming 18th-century building. Upon entering, the music and Tiki decor definitely give the bar that 'Parrothead,' island-type of vibe (Mr. Parrothead himself, Jimmy Buffet played here at the beginning of his career). There is no kitchen, just pub snacks like chips, pretzels and popcorn, but most people come for the music, camaraderie and cold beer.

Located in the historic Casablanca Inn, Tini Martini Bar is an intimate space that recalls scenes of Rick's Place in that movie named just like the hotel. The martini's are excellent and since they leave you with the shaker, it's basically a two-for-one night every night. The bar provides live jazz, blues and some of St. Augustine's finest local musicians to entertain audiences with creative renditions of classic covers. Even if you aren't a guest at the inn, you still can visit to enjoy the alfresco arrangement which lets you soak in views of the Matanzas River while you listen to sounds under the palm trees.
This lovely bar on Avenida Menendez just a few steps from the old fort features a full selection of drinks but also has a comprehensive kitchen with special emphasis on lunch and brunch. The menu is heavy on bar standards like chicken, salads, and burgers, but also features some fresh-caught seafood and the occasional distinguished special.
As the name implies, this jazz bar specializes in one indulgence above all others: cigars. The cigars are as close to Cuban delights as one can find in the US (though the offerings are mostly Honduran or Dominican), so those looking for Cohibas might be disappointed. The atmosphere is relaxed and mellow, but can be lively depending on the weather, time and the act on stage. Again, as the name implies, jazz is the main musical course here, but sometimes different sounds or the occasional DJ make their appearance.
