The Outback is two night spots in one. walk into a DJ and disco music then walk thru that club and that is the real GOLD. Live music every night with the most amazing band that rocks to classic vinyl til the late night hours.A little older crowd, dancing is great and on Saturdays the band gets the wonderful addition of 3 amazing horns too! A must to complete your daytime ski experience.
Dress Code: casual VT style
While not really much for eats, Red Square has some of the best nightlife in Burlington. Most Saturday's you can get live bands playing decen jam rock, or dj's spinning jungle or acid jazz. Members of Phish have been known to sit in with various projects now and then. Drinks are moderately priced and you can meet alot of interesting people (mostly 20-somethings) lounging around.
Alternately, Radio Bean and Metronome and Nectar's offer lots of national acts at fair prices and are all easily accessed from Church St, the main hub of downtown life.
Dress Code: Check with the clubs. Metronome is pretty casual, but most people at Red Square are dressed up (dressy shirt and leather shoes for guys, a decen skirt and blouse for girls) in what I would call Dress Casual. Radio Bean and nectars have no real dress code and you can arrive as you are and fit right in.
Small pub that plays good music. Does not fill up till later in the night after the house parties have died down from UVM. Great place to hang out and drink Magic Hat. This is my favorite bar to visit in Burlington. I always stop at What Ale's You.
Dress Code: Very casual. This is a college hangout.
This is a famous nightspot in Burlington where Phish got their start. (One of their albums is called A Picture of Nectar). This bar always has live music. I always enjoy stopping into Nectar's and grabbing a couple of drinks. Say 'hi' to the Phish heads as you walk by them outside the bar.
Dress Code: Whatever you feel is appropriate.
