“Free shots anyone? Jimmy's Crows Nest is a rooftop bar on Pier House 60 hotel on Clearwater Beach. If you want the best views of Clearwater Beach, and a free shot at sunset, this is the place to go! Great way to start your night out on Clearwater Beach. There are many bars on the strip within walking distance. If you leave Jimmy's Crows Nest, walk down the marina, and pass the round about, there is a strip of bars. One of the most popular bars is The Brown Boxer.”
