College towns have great clubs, bars, and a downtown scene, and Tallahassee is no exception. There are always fliers on campus promoting clubs, parties, and events for students. The school also hosts formals and other events for students from time to time. For students who are underage and cannot get into clubs, there is always someone throwing a house party, and they are welcome to attend those. Also, Buffalo Wild Wings is a hot spot for underage students on Tuesday nights.

Clubs in Tallahassee are easily accessible, but the prices vary depending on what time you arrive in line. Covers can range from $5 to $25, but most clubs give college students a discount before midnight if they show their school ID. The bars are also affordable, and some spots have two-for-one specials on drinks. Drinks usually cost $6 to $10, unless you purchase a whole bottle. Greeks also host parties at clubs throughout the school year, which they sell tickets for. The sooner you purchase a ticket, the cheaper the price will be. The Greek parties are usually where students have the most fun because almost the whole campus comes out to have a good time. Overall, nightlife in Tallahassee is great and many students enjoy it.
