Dynamic Variation:

Grand Rapids Nightlife

You'll find plenty of things to do after dark in Grand Rapids. Our downtown entertainment district puts you in the middle of a dazzling array of nighttime diversions: live-music places, sports bars, brewpubs, comedy clubs, theatres and more. Everything's within a five-minute walk of your downtown hotel!

Venture outside the city center and you’ll find even more nightlife fun – from concert venues and cocktail rooms to dance clubs and sports bars to bowling alleys and a fowling alley. Visit scores of craft breweries, cideries, distilleries and meaderies, all over town. If you’re up for a short drive, hit the game tables at Gun Lake Casino or take a moonlight stroll along a Lake Michigan beach. Scroll down to search our nightlife options by region and category.
