Bars for the Late-Night Crowd

It’s summer in Massachusetts, gifting us with warm weather, longer days, and more time for socializing. Most of us aren’t in too much of a rush to get home from work and hibernate in front of the television, opting for after-work gatherings that linger late into the evening. For you summertime night owls, here’s a list of some great hangout places open until midnight or later:

A favorite of ours is Donohue’s Bar and Grill on Bigelow Avenue, offering a broad menu, great drink selection, and a laid back vibe. Donahue’s is open until 1 AM Monday through Saturday and midnight on Sundays.

You may be familiar with Miller’s Ale House and their location at 617 Arsenal Street. Their menu at Miller’s is massive and offers a variety of yummy foods and libations. The Watermelon Margarita is the perfect summertime drink. Miller’s is open until midnight Sundays through Wednesdays and until 1 AM Thursdays through Saturdays.

Conley’s Pub and Grille, at 164 Belmont Street, is a family run business known for their awesome pizza and wings. Get in early for food, though, as the kitchen closes at 9:30 PM on Sundays and 10:30 PM all remaining days. However, once the kitchen closes, drinks are served till 1 AM closing time (12 AM on Sundays); enjoy a cold beer from one of the many they have on draft!  

The Halfway Café, at 394 Main Street, has been a mainstay in Watertown since 1995. Trivia on Tuesdays and Thursdays is popular and the food never disappoints. Meet your friends for dinner and drinks and stay until 1 AM Mondays through Saturdays and until 12 AM on Sundays.
