It was very hard to live in Albany with regards to nightlife. if you drive through the town at night, you will see most lights are out by 10 p.m. Live music is almost non-existant here (go to Corvallis). However, the Calapooia Brewing Co. (old town) does have some live acts (you can go to their website to check) and excellent beer, it closes by 12 pm, on the weekends as well. Also located in Old Town is a bar called JP's, which is frequented by locals and students from the community college. This place is notorious for being a pick-up joint--you will find many trolls at the bar. When a friend and I first went, I felt as if I was walking onto a movie set filming a late 70s/early 80s movie, starring Will Farrell ("Everyone was Kung-Fu Fighting" was being played). On the plus side, the drinks are strong and there are a few pool tables. Just don't *** off the bouncers. Up the street, at Bogey's Bar & Grill, you will find hip-hop music and a younger crowd. Father up, at Chaser's (my personal favorite), the weekends feature karaoke, where you will find a whole range of singers from the truly awful to the pretty good. The charm of Chaser's is, no one cares how good the singing is, it is really about having a good time. You might even be lucky enough to walk in during someone's Bachelor/bachelorette/birthday/anniversary party or when the local Roller Derby (still in uniform) comes to visit. People are always willing to share in their fun here.
