About Savannah, GA Nightlife
When the sun sets on the sleepy little city by the sea, the real fun begins. Savannah’s nightlife scene is booming, with establishments geared toward a variety of ages and interests. In fact in 2012, U.S. News & World Report ranked Savannah 15th in a list of Best Nightlife Scenes in the USA. Pretty impressive considering the 14 cities that come before are some of the largest in the country. Savannah has plenty of bars that take a page from big-city living, including Jazz’d, a trendy tapas bar that’s always packed, and Rocks on the Roof, a chic bar with incredible views of the city. Of course it’s a given that the city with one of the world’s largest St. Patrick’s Day parades has a good selection of Irish Pubs and bars, among them Kevin Barry’s, Murphy's Law Irish Pub and McDonough’s Restaurant and Lounge. Not to be left out, U.K.-inspired pubs Molly McPherson’s (Scottish) and Churchill’s (British, of course), promise a good time and authentic cuisine. Those seeking a quiet evening on the town will enjoy the quaint charm of Savannah favorites Circa 1875 Gastropub, Lulu’s Chocolate Bar and Planters Tavern. Not everyone wants an alcohol-fueled evening, and for those who just want to chill and enjoy the company of friends, there are late-night coffee shops that fit the bill, including Gallery Espresso and the Sentient Bean, which often features live music on the weekends. No matter what your nighttime style is, you’re guaranteed a good time in Savannah. Bottom’s up, y’all!
