Everyone has their own version of the perfect night out on the town. Maybe yours involves strolling quaint streets lined with bars, restaurants, and boutiques. Maybe it’s dancing into the wee hours of the night. Maybe it’s enjoying dinner before some live music (many of Annapolis’ restaurants host nationally-recognized performers and local favorites). Pub crawl? There’s no better place than Annapolis.

That's what makes Annapolis the perfect choice for nightlife: Whatever itinerary you imagine, we can make it happen. From cozy pubs and waterfront cocktails, to dance parties and rooftop patios, it's all in Annapolis.
