Forgotten Tonic and more romantic bars in St. Augustine

While the Nation’s Oldest City is known for its Spanish architecture, stunning golden sands, and historical landmarks, there’s something particularly romantic about the atmosphere in St. Augustine. There are so many intimate spaces for a quiet date night and cocktails out on the town. One of our favorite places is Forgotten Tonic, a cozy neighborhood spot off the beaten path offering innovative drinks and menu items. 

Sometimes, the best ways to reconnect and recharge during a romantic getaway are over craft cocktails and flavorful meals. Forgotten Tonic offers a great atmosphere, as well as all of the above. You’ll find cozy indoor seating and a few choice outdoor tables with a lovely neighborhood view and umbrellas. The food options offer modern twists on classic dishes. The cocktail menu is where this location shines; it’s extensive and spans more than 20 pages. 

Before you start making reservations at Forgotten Tonic and the other romantic bars in St. Augustine, you’ll want to book your lodging for your getaway. That’s where our St. Augustine bed and breakfast comes in! Casa de Sueños offers seven beautifully appointed guest rooms, all designed and tailored for couples looking to reconnect and unwind on a romantic getaway to Florida.
