Our Forbes Travel Guide editors say downtown Greenville is the place for nightlife no matter what night of the week. Every Monday, Coffee Underground features Open Mic Comedy Night, with no cover charge. And while the venue name suggests just coffee, a wide selection of beer, wine and cocktails are also available. Smiley’s Acoustic Café has good food, cold drinks and live music every night of the week starting at 6 p.m. Then for the later crowd, another act begins at 9 p.m., with the kitchen open until 1:30 a.m.
After a relaxing stroll around Falls Park, head over to Chicora Alley right across the street. A second-level bar with quirky and eclectic live music, Chicora Alley showcases many of Greenville’s up-and-coming singer/songwriters. For the late-night crowd, On the Roxx, located in Greenville’s West End, is upscale and fun without being stuffy and expensive. Featuring daily drink specials, the bar also offers its own private-label house wines.
In the mood to get your groove on? Head over to the Blu Martini Bar and Nightclub. Complete with private VIP areas, there’s no cover charge until 10 p.m. on weekends, and salsa lessons are offered on Thursdays and Sundays.
