One of the most amazing perks of living in The Rosemary district is the ability to walk, cycle, or quickly drive to downtown Sarasota and enjoy the amazing shows, restaurants, and shopping that the city has become known for. We’ve put together “The Courtyard At Citrus Downtown Sarasota Walking Guide” so that you can easily take advantage of all the fun things this area has to offer, in 20 minutes or less. Learn more about this week’s featured activity– Live Music! Read on for tips for great walkable live music locations.
The Blue Rooster
Take a right on 4th and about a block down on the right (2 mins) you’ll find the Blue Rooster, which is known for offering some of the best live music entertainment in Sarasota. A focus on Southern music, such as Jazz, Blues, and Gospel, go hand in hand with their southern style menu. With an ever changing calendar of events and a variety of acts in rotation, the Blue Rooster is a great place to enjoy live music.
Right next to The Blue Rooster is Servando’s a recent addition to the Sarasota restaurant scene. Servando’s is unique in that it offers the chance to really absorb the artist community Sarasota is known for, with live artists working in the space and the house band– Babyl– playing every Thursday. See more of their events on their Facebook page.
Mattison’s City Grille
A walk straight up Orange and a right on Main St will lead you to Mattison’s City Grille in about 8 mins. One of Sarasota’s most well-known and most well-respected restaurants, Mattison’s City Grille features live music every night of the week. Enjoy a Golden Spoon winning meal with live entertainment in either a beautiful indoor or outdoor setting.
