Truly cosmopolitan individuals may begin to experience withdrawl in Duluth. After all, it appears to be on the edge of the Earth and is surrounded with forests.
Luckily, Duluth is between two major college campus: UM Duluth and UW Superior. College students know how to throw a party even in the most frigid weather conditions. Sports bars, lounges, and entertainment is at the disposal of Duluth tourists all year round.
Grandma's Sports Garden is a token sports bar environment. The restaurant serves bistro style cuisine during the day and converts the warehouse into a dance club at night. Patrons can buzz and dance until 2 AM, a particularly late time for a town this size.
Some travelers may enjoy a little revelry, but do not care for loud music. Consider the Duluth Athletic Club where socializing and schmoozing are the prime activities. Enjoy a happy hour cocktail and appetizer. Otherwise, arrive later to converse with similarly upscale crowds.
The Fitgers entertainment complex (600 E. Superior Street) offers three bars which feature music and dancing. The Brewhouse is a micro-brewery featuring a variety of beers, and offers live acoustic music most nights of the week. The Red Star is perhaps the most upscale bar in Duluth, featuring martinis and other cocktails, and local DJs spinning dance music. Finally, the Lido nightclub in the basement features live music each weekend (usually mainstream rock) with a dance floor.
Those looking for less alcohol and more eclectic music may wish to visit the coffeehouses in the area. Amazing Grace bakery and coffeehouse in the Canal Park area has live music many nights of the week. So too does Beaner's Central in Duluth's West End. And across the bridge in Superior, the Red Mug coffeehouse also features acoustic performances.
The Omnimax Theater, or Fond-Du-Luth Casino are alternative venues where intense drinking and partying rarely take place. Watch a widescreen movie, or gamble with 700 slot machines instead.
There are many definitions for a delightful evening. Travelers to Duluth can pick their own.
