Girls Night In Rosemary Beach
Pescado – The Courtyard
Tucked away beneath one of the most popular spots in Rosemary, the Courtyard is the perfect stop-in to get your night started or for a drink & some local music. You’ll find a curated mix of drinks and bite-sized meals on their menu along with a salad or two. They also do a very decadent dessert that is not gluten or dairy-free. But if you can tolerate a little, their s’mores are BEYOND.
If you’re looking for a spot to grab drinks with your girls and settle in for a long chat, The Courtyard is definitely the vibe for it. Super cozy with the attention to detail that you’d find in Pescado.
I often recommend Neat as a stop for anyone looking to do girls’ night in Rosemary Beach but wanting something a little less hectic. It’s also technically in Aly’s Beach but for today, it’s all one area. With their custom cocktails that are constantly changing, Neat focuses mainly on showcasing their drinks with the same specialty you’d expect from a 5-star menu.
They do have a few food bites on the menu. This has changed over the years so I’d recommend checking online before you go. But when I’m looking to impress but go somewhere that features options for those who both indulge in alcohol & those who don’t, Neat is at the top of my list.
Eat At The Bar
I adore Pescado for many reasons. But getting a reservation for girls’ night in Rosemary Beach can be very challenging. They do offer walk-ups. However, as the only restaurant with a spectacular beach view in the area, it’s a V popular spot. *pro tip – go for lunch*
Thankfully, they do keep their bar seating open. And it’s absolutely worth it if you can snag a spot even if it’s only for a drink. The sunset view is spectacular. Plus, it’s the perfect space to soak in all the calming beach vibes while also eating an incredible meal.
The newest addition to the 30a stretch, The Citizen is one of the few restaurants in Alys Beach and it’s divine. Again, reservations can be hit or miss. But I’d recommend stopping in around 445pm and snagging a seat at the bar.
If you follow me on Instagram, I did a review when they first opened. We recently tried their menu again and noted a few updates. They are swapping things out seasonally. The menu is also much smaller than the original version. But you can find something for even the pickiest eater. At the time I’m writing this, their cocktail menu is created by the geniuses at Neat. I absolutely adore the vibe of this place. And the bar experience is always the best.
