There are many outdoor activities and tourist attractions in Lakeport and the surrounding areas that visitors to the town can enjoy during the days however the city also has a bustling nightlife to keep you entertained during the evening too. There are a wide variety of bars and restaurants particularly in the downtown part of the city where you can enjoy a refreshing cold alcoholic beverage and home cooked food while listening to music or watching the latest game of your favorite sport.
The Buckhorn Club is a popular venue for both locals and visitors alike, which can be found on North Main Street. The place is open 24 hours a day and you will find a friendly welcome waiting for you here whatever hour you happen to venture in there. It offers a relaxed environment for drinking and dancing so it is ideal for groups and there is also an outside terrace area with seating. The bar is manned by efficient, helpful staff, plus it is well stocked with all your favorite beverages and prices are very reasonable, with regular Happy Hour special offers too. Wheelchair access is available, smoking is permitted in the establishment and credit cards are accepted here also.
Molly Brenan’s Tavern is also located on North Main Street and this is another favorite for tourists as well as local residents. This is an Irish-themed restaurant and pub, so much of the cuisine and many of the drinks on offers reflects this however it is the live Irish music that attracts much of its regular clientele and this makes it ideal for a family dinner or evening out. If live music and a family orientated atmosphere are important to you then you may want to take a trip to the Blue Wing Saloon Bar and Restaurant in nearby Upper Lake as this offers a recreation of the very first saloon ever built in the area back in the latter decades of the 19th century. This establishment has taken some pride in showcasing the music of local musicians and regularly holds related events including every Monday night when a different blues band from around the region will play for your entertainment. There is also external seating in the garden and also on a heated veranda for your comfort during cooler months of the year. Kickin’ in the Country is another popular musical event that takes place in the downtown area of Kelseyville which is also within easy access of Lakeport. This takes place on every third Thursday of the month over the summer months – June, July and August – where you can dance under the stars from 7pm until 10pm to a live band while the kids can enjoy themselves in a designated play area close by.
If you prefer more adult orientated entertainment then you may fancy a night out at the Konocti Vista Casino which is situated on the shores of Clear Lake along Lakeport’s Mission Rancheria Road. For visitors during peak season, another alternative night out would be a trip to Lakeport Speedway on Martin Street where the daytime go–karting activities make way for high speed race nights.
