Sure, the temperatures dip quite a bit after the sun goes down in this part of the world, but that doesn't mean that you can't keep warm with the action of the nightlife in Anchorage. Whether you're looking for a place to take that special date or just hang out with your pals after a hard week, there are plenty of clubs, bars and hangouts in the city that will fit the mood of whatever you have planned for your evening.
Sometimes, making the right decision as to what to do with your evening means having to choose between one nightlife activity or the other. At the Beartooth TheatrePub

This combination restaurant/movie theater/pub has seating in the lobby and of course, in the main auditorium section. Patrons rave about how great the food is, and having a meal and drinks while watching a movie is like having lots of friends over to watch a good flick. Let the party begin!

There's nothing like checking out a great live band, and one of Anchorage's favorite places for nightlife and live music is Club Oasis
. The venue is a dimly-lit club, and the lack of flash and glitz makes it all the more inviting. Find your place at one of the many small two and four top tables, order a drink from the menu, and kick back to enjoy some live music. In fact, live music is on the menu every Wednesday through Saturday, so you have plenty of chances to hear several up-and-coming bands. Also, dancing is highly encouraged on Club Oasis' spacious dance floor.
