Milkshakes to moonshine: tippin’ back on Panama City Beach

Updated: May 23

We’ve done a flipflop bar hop. Here's our top picks.


It’s the start of Summer and, as a destination with 320 sunny days a year, Panama City Beach is the perfect spot to sample a wide range of bars and find your favorites – plus indulge in everything from milkshakes to moonshine!



Best wine bar: Smashed Wine Bar

Taking its name from smashing grapes – the essential part of the wine-making process, ‘Smashed’ is a self-serve wine bar with a fun flair. Pro tip: try the bottomless Mimosas every Saturday and Sunday 2-4.



Best milkshake bar: The Yard Milkshake Bar

From the PCB exclusive ‘Party at the Pier’ to ‘The Mermaid’ – this bar crushes the calorie count and brings boundless creativity to the mere milkshake.



Definitely a top spot to take in sunsets and catch the firing of the cannon as the sun dips to the water. ‘The Cannon’ is the perfect drink to match – with rum, fruit juices and an instant kick with a 151 floater.



Try the flavored moonshine that comes with a souvenir shot glass and has flavors like strawberry, raspberry, peach. Bonus - the Chilly Willy™ daiquiris are served in re-fill ready souvenir cups – for your next visit.



Watch all of your favorite teams on any of 25 flat screen TVs plus cold brews and a full selection of spirits. Top pick is the ‘Pick 6’ dry rub wings tossed in a mix of six different spices. 



Whether the raw bar or the menu choices, Dusty’s is a popular laid-back mainstay of PCB. The seafood menu options are available fried, grilled, or blackened. A great place to rub elbows with locals.


Manifest your inner power with smoothies, juices and a variety of menu choices. Leave feeling healthy and peaceful. Try the winning pair: the Goji Cacao Smoothie with the Salmon Wrap.


Best coffee bar: The Pour

From frozen white mocha to a double-shot espresso, this ‘coffee with a cause’ non-profit hangout has it all. You can order hand-crafted coffee online or hang out in the comfy community area where you can take (or leave) a book to read.


Once you enjoy a Tiki Punch with your feet in the ocean, there still plenty to do because this tiki bar is packed with beachside activities. Karaoke, billiards, and live music are just some examples.


As always, indulge responsibly, and make sure you’ve got a fabulous place to rest and recharge to be ready for the next day’s adventure.


Of course, our pick for the best accommodations is our very own: thiscondorocks!

It's equipped with a bar and bar tools, blender and an oversized balcony with one of the best views down Panama City Beach!
