ALL DRESSED UP WITH LOTS OF PLACES TO GO
BE BOOKED EVERY NIGHT…
Our downtown nightlife directory is ready to show you a good time.
Rediscover a night on the town.
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.
Let’s do Happy Hour!
Looking for somewhere to grab a drink? We’ve put together a list and map of downtown spots for weekday happy hours.
Support our independent, local businesses when they need you the most! Pick a different place each time you go out, and see how many you can check off.
