Nightlife & Gaming

After an action-packed day spent exploring the outdoors, strolling downtown, or clicking your boots at a festival, it’s time to experience Evanston after dark. Saddle up; we’re going out tonight!

Libations & Conversations

Want to rub elbows with Evanston locals? Head to Kate’s, our local watering hole, complete with pool tables, darts, and an eclectic jukebox. This is the place where we come together for a cold one, a good laugh, and some friendly competition in the form of trivia nights. Kate’s is the spot where you’ll arrive a stranger and leave as family.

Another can’t miss nighttime spot is Legal Tender, a longtime Evanston favorite for tasty eats and lively events. Swing by for a comedy show, or unleash your inner Willie Nelson at karaoke night. Either way, you’re bound to have a blast!

Beer lovers will find their favorite corner of Evanston at Suds Brothers Brewery, where you can try local brews, grab a bite, and listen to live music. Suds has been around for 12 years and shows no signs of slowing down with their award-winning pints!
