Camden has an active restaurant scene and a vibrant arts culture, so there’s no shortage of nightlife activities in and around Camden. The Strand Theatre in downtown Rockland may be listed on the National Register of Historic Places, but this venue is thoroughly modern, featuring state-of-the art projection and surround sound. Check the calendar of events to find out what’s happening when you’re there, and enjoy live transmissions from the Met Opera, musical performances, film or comedy shows amid the restored beauty of a 1923 classic movie house. Inside the halls of the renovated Camden Opera House, you’ll find a 500-seat auditorium replete with grand chandeliers, a horseshoe balcony, antique moldings and meticulously restored friezes — not to mention some impressive dance and musical performances.
If a good cocktail is more your speed, saddle up to the bar at Francine Bistro or Shepherd’s Pie, and let the bartenders work their magic. Whatever the night has in store, start early — Camden and its midcoast neighbors tend to close down on the earlier side.
