Naples' Cure for Late-Night Munchies: 10 Best Restaurants for Night Owls

Most Naples area bars, by law, must serve food as long as they are serving liquor, so your best bets for late night dining are the local clubs and drinking establishments. This list gives you the best such establishments that stay open past 10 p.m. Some, such as 7th Avenue Social, stay open later and pay as much or more attention to the food as they do the booze and entertainment. Others, such as Blue Martini, serve food more as a sideline and to fill the requirements of the law. So if you are looking for truly fine eats at a late hour, read the reviews carefully on this list. The offerings range from typical chicken wings, pizza, burgers and other bar food to elegant dishes representing Italian, American and global cuisine. The list also covers a wide range of dining ambiances - from sports and neighborhood bars to the finest settings of neo-classicism and modern design. Call ahead to the restaurants and bars on this list. Often they list their hours as "until close," so it is not exact what time they stop serving food. Often it depends upon how much business they are currently experiencing, so on week days, especially in the off-season, they may close early.
