From a casual night out with friends shooting pool or shooting darts, to something a little more interactive like karaoke or dancing, Shreveport's nightlife offers lots of fun options. Get your friends rounded up and ready to party, or just call up that one special someone for a night on the town and forget the stresses of the work week.
If a classy, somewhat dressed-up evening is in your plans, then the Village Grille
should be your first and only nightlife destination for a great-tasting meal and an equally enticing cocktail or two. The atmosphere is romantic thanks to the lushly decorated dining area, and the service is completely impeccable, as the waitstaff do their best to make you feel like you and your guest are the only ones in the restaurant. Also, the low-key ambiance makes it the perfect place to have an intimate conversation and focus your total attention on the person you're sharing this five-star meal with.

Music, dancing, arcade games, and a great menu that features such tasty choices as half shell oysters, make Fatty Arbuckle's Pub a great destination to spend your evening with friends.

If you've got your dancing shoes on and want a nightlife venue that won't shut down just as you're getting started, then Phoenix Underground
is for you. The party starts around midnight and doesn't stop until 6am, with the scene getting more intense as the morning hours fly by. Phoenix Underground also features a well-stocked bar and expert bartenders to ensure that your drink is the best it can possibly be, and the setup is quite possibly the most unique in town, if not the country. The club's décor not only features the usual lounge chairs and barstools, but also has beds to lie in as a parade of people head toward the dance floor and the party ensues.
