Party People

Mobilians work hard but celebrate harder. As the city that’s born to celebrate, the good times are always rolling in the Port City. When Mardi Gras season isn’t taking the city by storm or our 600-pound electric MoonPie isn’t sliding down RSA Tower to signal the beginning of the new year, we have to create the party on our own. O’Daly’s Irish Pub, Hayley’s and the multi-level B-Bob’s are all renowned places in town that guarantee good times. We recommend reading the “Girls' Getaway” and “Mobile’s PRIDE Guide” itineraries to help you scope out our nightlife.

Start your visit at the History Museum of Mobile and make the short trek to Colonial Fort Conde.
