Stuart or Hutchingson Island?

We will be on our way down through Florida (driving from Orlando) to get a cruise out of FLL the 3rd week of January. We are already staying in Fort Lauderdale for 2 nights before the cruise but thought that maybe the Stuart area might be a nice halfway point and a new place to visit for us. We have 3 nights available.

Where best to base ourselves? Stay in Stuart and use the car to go have lunch at Hutchinson Island? Or vice versa? Which has more things to do in the evening, nightlife, etc? We're not beach bathers but do like to walk a boardwalk or promenade and admire the views during the day but we would like good bars, restaurants and a live music vibe at night within walking distance.

Any advice on where we should stay please? Thank you!
