Outer Banks Nightlife & Events

Outer Banks events for late night activities are so plentiful that it’s honestly hard to know what to choose! In the mood to go dancing or bar hopping? Check out the Outer Banks nightlife at bars and restaurants in Kill Devil Hills and Nags Head for pulsing beats and dancing. Or you can keep it a little more low-key by checking out acoustic musicians crooning in a cozy bar. For a bigger band, bands with local and even national claims to fame can be found touring around local restaurants, bars and other venues. In Manteo, keep an eye out for Outer Banks events that bring in the big-name country and bluegrass bands throughout the summer or the local favorites that perform almost nightly at local watering holes. For the more adventurous sorts, you can sing out your personal anthem at Outer Banks events, like karaoke nights. If you’re feeling competitive, get a group of friends together and put your knowledge to the test at trivia nights. With so many Outer Banks nightlife options, it can be hard to spend the night doing just one.
