Good times don’t go to bed.

Stay Up Late in Hot Springs

When the sun goes down in Hot Springs, the fun is just getting started! One of America’s favorite getaways for more than a century, the Spa City knows how to party. From legendary clubs that have been popping since Prohibition to live music venues and festivals of all kinds, there’s always music in the air and a crowd on the dance floor. Looking for something a little more intimate? Take someone you love on a floating, moonlit dinner date under the stars.

Fancy Seeing You Here

Looking for casual late-night dining while you’re in Hot Springs? Check out the Waters Rooftop for a decadent dessert paired with a specialty cocktail and the best view above downtown Hot Springs. Or get the night started with a fresh, local brew from Superior Bathhouse Brewery, a bathhouse turned brewery in the Spa City’s historic Bathhouse Row. Maybe some great pizza after hours? Stop over at Grateful Head or check out Rocky’s Corner.

Raise a Glass for Al Capone

When you’re out in Hot Springs, you’ll be walking in the footsteps of legends. Ted Williams and Al Capone were regulars at The Ohio Club, a famous hangout known for great drinks and live music every night. The Copper Penny Pub is another popular watering hole with a steady stream of live music and local brew, or you can catch a show and a bacon Bloody Mary at Maxine’s Live. Visit Boogies Bar & Grill for some of the best nightlife entertainment and live music, open until 5 a.m.! Stop by the historic Legendary Vapors for some live musical entertainment - where many famous musical acts once graced the stage, from Liberace to Tony Bennett!

Unconventional Entertainment

Hot Springs has lots of interesting experiences to spice up your vacation. Ever taken a Horse and Carriage ride? Add some serious old-school class to your night with a ride from the Hot Springs Carriage Company. Or maybe a gorgeous sunset? You should see it from a Belle of Hot Springs riverboat tour.

A magical evening isn’t hard to pull off if you know where to go. In Hot Springs, your best bet is the Maxwell Blade Theatre of Magic, a mind-blowing experience for the whole family that is exactly as cool as it sounds. Or, if the supernatural is more your thing, you can take a 60-minute walking tour of the most haunted spots in the city at Hot Springs Haunted Tours and make your night a lot more spooky!
