Start the night in Downtown where late night eats reign supreme. Main Event Sports Grill offers happy hour starting at 10 p.m., and Thai Orchid dishes out special prices from 9 p.m. until close. Local hawkers of Couve-crafted beer, such as Loowit Brewing and Trusty Brewing Company, often program live music on weekends to pair perfectly with their Northwest ales and bar snacks. Turning up the music just a notch, the dance floor at Six West Lounge brings DJ-spun jams begging for your best moves.
If a relaxed atmosphere is more your style, check out Low Bar for local art, downhome cooking, and casual conversation with the regulars. Other local watering holes include martini bar Top Shelf and Brickhouse, which offers reliable drinks, arcade games, pool tables, and a consistent line-up of musical acts.
Just a few blocks north in Uptown, The Thirsty Sasquatch impresses late-nighters with its casual approach to craft whiskey and local beer. Head out back to enjoy the ambience of the expansive patio, or visit Trap Door Brewery just up the street for a slightly more raucous patio vibe. End the night at one of the area’s ‘dive bar’ classics, like Tip Top Tavern or Shanahan's, for cheap eats and stiff drinks.
