Omaha has numerous nightlife options spread across the city. Probably the best places are found in the Old Market district, which has a nice selection of bars, clubs and happy hour specials. Check out the Dubliner Pub if you want to imbibe in an authentic Irish setting, or try Havana Garage for tropical drinks and cigars. The Nomad Lounge offers a sensual, decadent atmosphere and gets going later in the evening with booming dance music.
A variety of nightlife options have sprung up in Midtown, where you’ll find numerous restaurants, bars and cinemas spilling around the Midtown Crossing and Aksarben Village developments. Also in the area is a trio of beer drinking establishments: Crescent Moon, Max and Joe’s and Huber-Haus. They are all connected, and each one specializes in different types of beers. Down the road, Brothers Lounge is a friendly neighborhood joint with a casual, rumpus-room feel to it.
Finally, go to West Omaha to find the Holiday Lounge and Interlude Lounge — both throwbacks to an earlier era, with a retro atmosphere and strong drinks. Not far away from those spots is the Mai Tai Lounge, tucked away in the basement of the Mt. Fuji Inn. You’ll know exactly what you’re getting here — the bar’s alcoholic concoctions have their own ratings system based on the potency of the drink.
