Our downtown nightlife directory is ready to show you a good time.
Due to the current health crisis, downtown businesses are creatively adapting to changes necessary for the health and safety of their workers and patrons.
But, business is still OPEN* in downtown Dayton.
Click here for a list of businesses offering carry out, curbside pickup, delivery, or other services.
When was the last time you had a really good night out? Downtown makes it easy – almost too easy – for you to fill your nights with fun. We like a good excuse to party.
We’re the epicenter of Dayton’s booming craft beer scene, with a huge concentration of independent brew pubs and a ton of bars that love to vie for the bragging rights of best selection of craft draughts. Spirits are big business here, too, as we’re home to the #1 seller of Irish whiskey in Ohio, one of the top bourbon bars in the nation, and some great bartenders who know how to make a cocktail.
You can also find plenty of quiet places to sip wine, amazing outdoor patios, dance clubs, a great LGBT scene, fantastic music venues, old local taverns, trendy lounges, grown-up arcades, and other stops to include on your next bar hop.
We’ll see you out on the town.
