20 S Huron St
Toledo, OH 43604   Directions Website

The fact that there are so many great nightclubs and bars to choose from in Toledo is impressive, but when you want a quieter, classier experience, make your way to the Bronze Boar. This retro-cool nightlife destination is located on the second floor of a registered historic building, and that brings an air of classic appeal to a place that features an already impressive variety of beers from around the world, a notable wine list and even a humidor with a great selection of cigars.

1515 Byrne Rd
Toledo, OH 43614   Directions Website

Doc Watson's always seems to attract an interesting and attractive cross-section of patrons. There are young professionals, college kids and lovers of great live music. All of these patrons convene here regularly to enjoy a beer and live music nearly every night. The stage is always featuring performers who deliver everything from blues to acoustic rock, and when the band takes a break, there is an impressively-stocked jukebox that keeps the mood up in this highly appealing nightlife venue.

Frankie's Inner City Lounge
Frankie's Inner City Lounge

(419) 693-5300

308 Main St
Toledo, OH 43605   Directions Website

Even though its name may suggest something low key and quiet, Frankie's Inner City Lounge is anything but sedate. This is one of Toledo's premier nightlife venues for new and alternative rock and features a powerful combination of live bands and DJs every night of the week. The mood changes from night to night depending on what band or musical theme is on the menu, ranging from guitar bands on Tuesdays, open mic night on Wednesdays and industrial and Gothic music on Fridays. A cool, happening and loud place, Frankie's is not for the fainthearted.

The Distillery
The Distillery

(419) 382-1444

4311 Heatherdowns Blvd
Toledo, OH 43614   Directions Website

Friendly and slightly trendy is the best way to describe The Distillery. This is one of Toledo's favorite places to hang out, enjoy some tasty pub grub and enjoy music. The nightlife venue always features an impressive lineup of excellent cover bands, but on the nights when there is no live music, there is an excellent selection of 80s, 90s and current music being expertly spun by the in-house DJs. The Distillery's casual atmosphere, great drink selection and young crowd make this a great place to hang out any night of the week.

Village Idiot
Village Idiot

(419) 893-7281

309 Conant St
Maumee, OH 43537   Directions Website

Even though the bar may be called Village Idiot, this is one of the smartest destinations for nighttime fun. This bar attracts a primarily young, alternative crowd of 20 and 30-year-olds. Live music is featured every Thursday through Sunday night and the bands perform everything from alternative to blues to Dead Head classics. The atmosphere is trendy, as the nightlife venue features high ceilings and an expansive area to mingle and dance. The attire (and atmosphere) is cool but casual.
