When the weather turns chill, Virginia Beach is still the place to… well, chill. With a lively nightlife, the Beach is not short on hot spots for adult crowds of all ages.
One of the longest establishments at the Oceanfront, and a local favorite, is Peabody’s. With contests for ladies every Thursday nights, and various college student discounts, the crowd is never dull. For a more relaxed atmosphere, head downstairs to Sharx Sports Bar or even across the street to Shaka’s two level, three bar party. Down on 17th, put some spice in your life at Tropicana’s. Their Latin beats provided by local and traveling DJs plus live bands will have you doing the salsa in no time.
For the refined, sip a cooling margarita at Catch 31, located beside the lobby of the Oceanfront Hilton Hotel. Enjoy sophisticated dining with a wonderful view of the beach right next to Neptune Park. If you decide to pass up on driving home (with a DD of course) or hailing a taxi and stay at the hotel, your room key will open up more than a suite. You’ll be able to go all the way to the top and enjoy a better view of the ocean at Sky Bar.
One of the newest hot spots locations is Shore Drive. This could possibly be the Beach’s best bar crawl experience. Pick your poison at any of the many fine establishments. From Hot Tuna and Kokoamo’s, to Guadelajara’s (one of many in the Beach) and the tri-fecta Bayside Grille, Cabo Café, and Smokehouse. There’s even a bus, free of charge, that will help you get back and forth.
New clubs that are making noise in Virginia Beach include Venue on North Great Neck, Aria, and Diesel Rock’n Country, both on First Colonial. Some of the traditional favorites include Central 111 in the Great Neck area, The Edge, Chemistry, Chicho’s, and Lunasea on “The Block” down on Atlantic Avenue, and Red Star in Town Centre.
Pretty much, any watering hole you find in Virginia Beach is the place to be for great company and a night full of dancing.Quote this article on your site
