308 Wendell Ave
Fairbanks, AK 99701   Directions Website

Primarily considered a locals bar, Fairbanks' Midnite Mine is a place to go if you just want to enjoy a few beers with friends in a nightlife venue that doesn't feature a big party atmosphere. Everyone pretty much keeps to themselves, so if you are out with a group of friends but want to keep a low-key, less noticeable profile, then Midnite Mine is the perfect destination. A great beer selection along with a bit of a ramshackle atmosphere are what you can expect.
