Cedar Rapids Area Nightlife

Pull up a chair at one of our local establishments and enjoy everything from a craft beer to cocktails created from one of the area’s award-winning mixologists.

A night out on the town with friends is just what you need! Check out some of our favorite local establishments in Cedar Rapids for a drink and appetizer.

Much of the area’s nightlife can be found in downtown including the elegant Black Sheep Social Club. For a more casual vibe check out Bricks Bar & GrillPub 217 or Cliff's Dive Bar. If you're ready to dance visit Hazzard County American Saloon, or take your shot at riding the bull at Rock Bar. Visit these and many additional bars and restaurants throughout the downtown.
