Our Favorite Asheville Nightclubs
Alley Cat Social Club
If you are looking for a more intimate bar and nightclub, Alley Cat Social Club is for you. It is a great place for an after-dinner cocktail and is known as the late-night party bar since it stays open until 2 am. Alley Cat Social Club hosts dance parties, karaoke, and live music. They can also help put together private events as well.
Located at 180 Patton Ave, this self-proclaimed Rock n’ Roll dive bar is a great spot if you are looking for a more punk rock night out. With plenty of concerts, karaoke events, and more, the 27 Club is leading the charge in keeping Asheville Weird.

It relocated to its present site on the French Broad River's banks in 1998 from its original position in Black Mountain, North Carolina.
