San Angelo has a bar for just about everyone. Whether you want to dance or just drink your sorrows away, there is a place for it in town. For the drinking crowd over 21, there are different types of bars that cater to different tastes. From the rock 'n' roll atmosphere of The Deadhorse, to the casual laid-back atmosphere of Grinners. 

Most of the bars downtown are not for those under 21, but some clubs admit anyone 18-and-up who wants to dance the night away. There are basically three options for dance style, and four popular clubs to dance in. There is country/western dancing at Midnight Rodeo and Rockin' Rodeo, Tejano at Swagitos, and hip-hop at Club 84 (formerly known as Club Rah). These places are all 18-and-up, but only patrons 21 and older are allowed to drink. Places like Buffalo Wild Wings are fun for the whole family and quite popular with college students. Here, those over 21 can have a drink while hanging with their younger friends at karaoke night. Other nighttime fun for all ages includes the movie theatre and the bowling alley.
