There is a lot of great nightlife that you can enjoy when visiting southern Vermont. There are some great places that will keep you and your friends entertained for hours. These are some of the places that I like to visit when I have a night out with my friends.

South Street Café

This café is located in Bennington. It is one of the most comfortable and relaxed places that I have been. When I am out with my friends we like to sit on one of the velvet sofas and have a nice cup of coffee. The café has high ceilings. I though the orange walls would be tacky when I first heard of them but this give this café a cool vintage feel. When we are here we get a fresh quiche and some treats from the bakery. This café also has soups and sandwiches. They are delicious and I have never gotten anything that tasted bad from this café.

This is a classic style pub but there is entertainment so you can enjoy a night out with your friends. There are over 10 varieties of beer on tap and there are some seasonal offerings as well. This pub is even home to the Pullman Porter which has won a number of awards. For those that like a lively atmosphere there are live music events happening several times a week.
