When it comes to where to go for a cold drink or an evening of dancing, the Outer Banks has plenty of options. Local restaurants such as Oceana's Bistro or the Froggy Dog double as fun after-hours hangouts, with ample space at the bar or even at adjourning indoor or outdoor lounges. Both of these establishments have plenty of TVs and sports packages so patrons can saddle up and enjoy the game with fellow fans, even if they're miles away from home.
Other local watering holes, Pop's Raw Bar in Buxton, have a no-frills vibe with great fresh seafood to go with a cold beer, while other bars, like the Sandbar and Grille, (also located in Buxton), transform at night into fun dance clubs with live bands and karaoke offered seasonally.
The majority of these establishments are open nightly, and a handful are open year round, so visitors of every season can unwind after a long day at the beach with a cold drink, a good game, and a friendly Outer Banks atmosphere.
