Little Rock Nightlife

The heart of the Little Rock nightlife scene has become the River Market District, which is home to bars that feature live music, restaurants and shops. The district is also located next to a large outdoor amphitheater at Riverfront Park, where concerts, movie nights and festivals with well-known performers are often held. Little Rock is also home to the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and Ballet Arkansas, both of whom perform at Robinson Center Music Hall. The Arkansas Repertory Theatre and several theaters, comedy clubs, jazz and blues bars, and energetic dance clubs also host other events in Little Rock.

Just across the river in North Little Rock is Verizon Arena, where major sporting events and performances by top-notch entertainers regularly take place. A couple of blocks away is the Argenta Historic and Entertainment District where you'll find restaurants, bars, clubs and art galleries.

Front Street has rapidly become the center of Conway nightlife and entertainment. Restaurants, art galleries, and shops draw people downtown. The University of Central Arkansas, Hendrix College and Central Baptist College offer theater productions, concerts, art exhibits, and nationally known guest speakers. Summertime in Conway offers many cultural activities, such as the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre annual festival. It is the state’s only professional Shakespeare Company.
