Seattle's nightlife ranges from thriving dance clubs to bars packed with patrons until closing time (which here is 2 a.m.).

The Capitol Hill neighborhood is the go-to spot for travelers looking to party hard. Hit the bars and clubs scattered throughout the Pine/Pike corridor, between Broadway and 15th streets. Start the evening with karaoke at the Rock Box, dance the night away at the gay club R Place, or sip specialty margaritas at The Saint. For live music, hit the Comet Tavern or Chop Suey.

For a cold, craft beer in a quieter space (though don't expect bars to be too quiet -- they're almost always full on weekends) head to the Noble Fir in the Ballard neighborhood, or the dimly lit Conor Bryne pub. If you're after a concert, try Sunset Tavern.
