BARS, CLUBS, BANDS AND NIGHTLIFE

Virginia Beach has a lot to offer when it comes to Nightlife.  There are so many places to go that it is difficult to list them all in one place.  If you are at the oceanfront, then you don’t need to look far. Every hotel and restaurant has a bar or lounge and many of them change their atmosphere throughout the day to be appropriate to the crowd they want to entertain.

If you are more adventurous and have transportation, there are many more locations inland where you can go and have the time of your life without having to deal with the crowds that the beach may have to offer.

It really is up to the individual.  Be sure to look around and don’t get yourself stuck in one location.  There is plenty of nightlife to explore all over Virginia Beach.
