While brightly lit Clifton Hill does boast plenty of things to do at night, including the bright beacon that is the Niagara Skywheel, you’ll find some of the best bars in town on a couple of different streets, namely Victoria Avenue and Centre Street.
Victoria Avenue, which is also right at the heart of Niagara Falls, is home to a couple of great places I’d definitely recommend you check out. The first is DJ’s, which is pictured here, and which is a little further along the street but still only about a 10-minute walk from the centre of town.
This bar definitely has a lived-in feel to it and, as the sign behind the bar says, it rates cozy over classy. Not only is the atmosphere friendly, but the music is great and the bar hosts lots of different events. These include everything from open jam sessions to live bands to karaoke to DJ nights. Plus they do a lot of drinks specials such as their Tuesday night offers on Jagerbombs.
Walk back down Victoria Avenue and you’ll come across the Wild Mushroom. Invitingly comfy green leather booths await you when you head down the stairs and into the long bar. Specials are offered regularly and are particularly good value on Sunday nights when you can get cheap mixed drinks and pitchers of beer. If you feel like doing a bit more than just sitting and drinking, there’s a pool table and a dart board here too.
Another street to check out for nightlife in Niagara Falls is Centre Street where you’ll find Jack’s. For no cover charge you can hear live music here on Tuesday and Fridays, plus they do specials on mixed drinks and beer.
So, definitely a good first night here in Niagara Falls. Tomorrow I’m going to see a couple of the top-notch attractions on offer outside of the town centre, including the Whirlpool Jet Boat and more.
