1263375418OS1Lj1Sometimes life is better than good.  In fact life was pretty great last week when friend and co-worker Matt Burkhart and I got to hit some of our favorite watering holes in downtown St. Augustine to bring you this inside scoop on where to kick back with some beers, have a cocktail with friends or sip wine in style.  Truly St. Augustine has so much to offer.  In addition to gorgeous weather, historic beauty,  great shopping and sightseeing, St. Augustine has a nightlife scene with something for everyone – dive joints, college hangouts, gourmet restaurants and sophisticated bars.  Come along with me and Matt as we visit my favorite spots: J.P. Henley’s for the beer lovers, Cellar 6 for a relaxing night on the town, and The Tini Martini Bar for delicious martinis and beautiful view of the bay front.  If you’re making a night of it, you could easily visit all three of these spots in one evening as they are in easy walking distance near the waterfront.
