Staying on work-related business in Florida might not be the perfect way to visit this sunny city. We can imagine that looking outside the window onto sunny Jacksonville is not the highlight of the day. However, do not let that feeling set the mood. The conference hotels in Jacksonville have all the facilities to make your work days fly by. Furthermore, this city is also awake in the evening so you will get your chance to discover Jacksonville after work.
Why not visit one of the clubs that is located in The Elbow in downtown Jacksonville? Chances are high, however, that you do not want to get back to work sleep deprived and hung over. Still, The Elbow is an entertainment district with more than nightclubs. The Florida Theatre is located here and makes for an easy night of entertainment.
Alternatively, you can opt for visiting The Hourglass Pub & Coffee House. This place is great for meeting new people and having a good laugh. They host daily events, including karaoke night, live music, free poker, and even burlesque classes. To combine dining out with shopping, stop by The Avenues Mall, offering over one million square-feet of shopping experience.
Another fun bar-related activity to do in the evening is the Jax Brew Bus. Attend the informative tour, in which you visit three local breweries and get to sample a lot of craft beers. Who does not love tasty beers after work? The tour takes quite some time (4.5 hours) but with 10-15 samples, you will want to take your sweet time. Otherwise, you will still be hung over the next day and we would not want that.
