The Quad Cities’ nightlife offers entertainment options for the night owl in you. Whether it’s a quiet drink with friends or that special someone to dancing or shot calling, the downtown and surrounding areas have something for you. We showcase our select favorites to help you find your next spot or to get out and enjoy the QC.

You don’t need to look further than the state of the art Rhythm City Casino Resort just a few minutes form downtown Davenport. This ultra modern Casino and Resort will make you feel like your right int he middle of Las Vegas with plenty of video gaming, entertainment and delicious cuisine.

Cru Bottle Shoppe & Bar

If you’re looking for that quintessential downtown romantic wine bar to take your date on then don’t go any further than Cru in Davenport. It can get a bit crowded at times but you can always take in the crowd for what it is, a night life. The selection is always top shelf, the prices are fantastic and the overall feel is dim and romantic. Oh and last time we checked they don’t have a kitchen so bring some light fare or enjoy dinner ahead of time.

Figge Art Museum

You may not think an Art Museum would be on par with a vibrant nightlife but you’d be surprised. The Figge is open until 9pm on Thursdays night, has a full bar and a full kitchen plus not to mention a constant rotation of art exhibits, art activities and art related shows some of which don’t end until past midnight. Check with the website for upcoming events to include in your calendar. The Figge offers a moderate size collection of fine art but don’t be discourage, the collections are on the same level as any large city Fine Art museum and with a wonderful view of the Mississippi.

Not to Mention Bars, Pubs, Brew-houses, Restaurants and Microbrews!

If you want a dive sure we have plenty of those but we also have a nearly endless selection of craft beer, cocktail and wine locations to enjoy. Google your theme and set course you wont be disappointed.


We can’t say it much better than the creatures of Daytrotter’s themselves:

The QC’s newest live music venue enables us to expand what we set out to do: give exciting bands an outlet to share their creativity with listeners who connect with their music. It is our gift to Daytrotter members and to the fabulous Quad Cities community.

Make sure to subscribe to their enewsletter to get the latest schedule of upcoming shows and events or their website before heading out on the town.
