The Village at Mammoth Lakes has a number of bars and restaurants that have a good party scene. Lakinuki has a younger and louder crowd in the evenings. There are condo rentals right above and some guests get upset at the loud party activities.
The Auld Dubliner is a great spot to start off your nightlife in Mammoth Lakes. Unfortunately many people are too keen on starting early and come directly from the slopes. Makes the place smell a little like a ski boot. The bartenders are quick and keep the drinks coming so you shouldn't notice the smell after a few rounds. The place is pretty fun. On weekends you can find a live band playing and some pretty girls trying to rock out. At about that point it's time to leave and join the club scene upstairs at Lakanuki. The crowd is diverse spanning all age groups above 21.
Dress Code: You can wear a one piece snowsuit if you want. Do everyone a favor, shower after riding and then come out play.
This place is great at what it does. Sometimes there is cover could be $5,$10 or $20 depending on the night. By this time you should be fairly lit up and ready to have a good time. Check your coat, pay the lady and join the fun. The ever present smell of ski boot will follow you inside, as it does so many Mammoth Lakes establishments. We've stayed until closing every time we've been inside and had a great time every time. There is a dance floor and and chill out area where people hang out, flirt and watch. The music is popular music similar to that played in most US clubs. The DJ is pretty good and the crowd, interesting. I've seen girls make out, try to go topless, and party pretty hard. The people inside are young and the place can get a little wild. Don't slip on the dance floor ... usually it's wet from all the spilled drinks. Bathrooms are small and dirty by the end of the night (I'm assuming the women's bathroom look the same as the men's. None of my female friends were brave enough to go in).
Dress Code: Try to wear pants.
It's your usual bar that turns into a dance club at night. There is a small dance foor and girls are allowed to jump up on the sturdy wood tables. The crowd is early 20s sprinkled with other age groups. They have a coat check area with is key when you're in the snow and it's cold outside and warm inside.
Dress Code: No dress code
The bar was very fun, doors open to a large upstair veranda that looks over the Mammoth statue and up at the mountain. Out door heaters were provided for an enjoyable nighttime deck experience.
Who knew they would take my picture while shaking a leg. I look like I'm really concentrating on my moves.
