Outer Banks Nightlife

Just about everybody has a favorite late night place to go and unwind. It doesnâåÛåªt mean that any one place is better than another, itâåÛåªs just that particular setting works well for the individual. One of the nice things about the Outer Banks is how many choices there are.

For me, though, Trio, in Kitty Hawk, works well. Live music--usually acoustic--an amazing selection of wines and something like 28 beers on tap. Oh and they have wonderful cheese plates and sandwiches too.

IâåÛåªm thinking of this, because I stopped by last night and Jug Tucker, one of my favorite Outer Banks bands was playing. Jug Tucker is kind of bluegrass but with a twist. Extraordinarily accomplished musicians, their a lot of fun to see and the arrangements are just enough off kilter from traditional bluegrass that it keeps my interest.

That âåÛå÷s not to say Trio is the only late night place to visit. In Kitty Hawk alone thereâåÛåªs Ocean Boulevard and Barefoot BernieâåÛåªs and IâåÛåªm sure IâåÛåªm forgetting something.

If you prefer bigger venues with bigger sound, thereâåÛåªs the Outer Banks Brewing Station or Port OâåÛåª Call in Kill Devil Hills. Or KellyâåÛåªs Outer Banks Tavern in Nags Head.

And this is just a small sampling . . . but for me, a quiet glass of wine, good music and great conversation.
