The Life in the Night of Harrisburg

For a few laughs with some good company over a couple of tasty drinks, the downtown and midtown areas of Harrisburg shine like beacons of nightlife fun, and best of all, most hot spots of merry-making are within walking distance. There are few better places outside of NYC or Philly to live it up at a lively lunch, stress-relieving happy hour or night on the town.

In celebration of the wide selection of locations to enjoy an adult beverage within walking-distance, Harrisburg Magazine recently took a strolling nightlife tour of Harrisburg and brought back the photos to prove it. While we did not stop at every single nightlife spot, we did manage to pay a visit to about 40 of them. Please forgive us if we missed your favorite haunt, but we were drinking on the job after all. So, ditch your car keys, let your designated driver know when to pick you up or reserve a ride from Uber, it’s time for a Harrisburg nightlife walkabout.
