Welcome to Sarasota, Florida's most charming gathering place. The Gator Club is located in a beautifully restored original brick building that has for generations been a cornerstone of downtown Sarasota. Inside, you'll find traditional surroundings such as leaded glass mirrors, exposed brick walls and antique brass lighting fixtures. In this original atmosphere reminiscent of old New Orleans or New York City, Sarasota's professionals gather for intimate conversation mingled with the sounds of Rhythm & Blues and Top 40. A visit to the Gator Club will remind you of your favorite night spot in your favorite city. The Gator Club building, a part of downtown Sarasota since 1913, has been many things to many generations of people. Grocery store, newsstand, cigar store and real estate offices have all made this building their home. From this central vantage point downtown, the Gator Building has seen the comings and goings of hurricanes and trains, cattle drives and circus parades. Each by-gone era, including two world wars and prohibition, has left its mark on the building.
