Scarborough Nightlife Tips
Follow the locals on a pub crawl or play the seaside arcades when it’s too early to go to bed yet in Scarborough, England.
Begin at the Lord Rosebery on Westborough, then turn left out of the main door, and left again to go round the corner to Snowy’s. Triple house spirits are a bargain.
After Snowy’s, follow the road you are on straight down past the big shopping center, down York Place, to Klosters (really nice bar, recently refurbished). After that, avoid Red Square, which looks like it should be the next pub on the route, it’s crap. Instead go down the hill to the roundabout – your next pub, Soltz, is just off to the left.
After Soltz, go back to the roundabout and turn left. Avoid the Pickwick, and carry on to Bar2B, which is much nicer! Then carry on the same street as it turns left… the next few bars are all owned by chains, but they’re pretty new and always busy (Barracuda, Blue Lounge & Yates). If you;re not ready to go to chain pubs just yet, try a really good cocktail or premium pint at Nix. To get there, go straight out of Bar2B and walk down the left of the car park, it’s park of the St Nicholas Hotel but open to the public. It’s easy to rejoin the route afterwards.
Foreshore Road/ The Promenade
Once the sun has set Scarborough comes alive with bright lights along the sea front. Foreshore Road on the South Bay is where everything happens in the evenings. The amusement arcades and cafes are lit up all year, ending at the amusement park by the lighthouse. Some arcades are for gambling (and therefore adults only) but most are a mix with something for everyone.
