About Greenville, SC Nightlife

After dark, the heart of the action is in Greenville's downtown and West End districts. Busy bars line the streets, so there's no shortage of spots to mingle, throw down some drinks or catch the latest game on TV. Many of the city's restaurants have awesome bars, where locals kick back after work and enjoy the high-end atmosphere of spots like High Cotton without the pricey meal. Beer connoisseurs enjoy the variety of good brews on Main Street - places such as Liberty Taproom, Blue Ridge Brewing Company and Barley's Taproom - while oenophiles dig Northampton Wine Café.  Music fans flock to Smiley's Acoustic Cafe, Brown Street, or the Handlebar for the latest blues, rock, indie, folk or bluegrass concert.  Theater is also alive and well, with everything from touring sellouts at The Peace Center to highly praised local productions at The Warehouse Theater, Greenville's Little Theater, or Center Stage.
