The recipe for throwing a good party is simple: start with a handful of friends or family, toss in some good music and stir in equal parts refreshing beverages and tasty food; then enjoy. If you’re the type of person who is always seeking the next greatest party, even during your vacation travels, this guide to Cape Cod nightlife will be a game changer. And because we know the recipe changes somewhat when traveling, we’ve made sure that the parties you find here offer an extra pinch of laughter and excitement!

Hot Stove Saloon, 551 MA-28 #4, Harwich Port

A good party doesn’t have to involve martinis, spiked heels and tiny appetizers made from sea foam and deer breath. Sometimes all you need is a bunch of people in jeans and sweatshirts enjoying a cold beer as they watch ‘Boys of Summer’ on the big screen. The Hot Stove Saloon in Harwich Port is where the party starts for baseball fanatics, and the pub-style food served here promises to be a lot more substantial than seafoam! Every guide to Cape Cod nightlife would include this place!

The Improper Bostonian – Live Music Venue & Bar, 626 Main Street, Dennis Port

If we didn’t mention the Improper Bostonian, then this wouldn’t be the ultimate guide to Cape Cod nightlife! The coziness of Cape Cod means you never have to drive far to have a good time, and the Improper Bostonian is a prime example. It features live bands whose music will get you out of your seat and onto the dance floor, karaoke for those who love the limelight and some of the best happy hour specials on all of Cape Cod. If you are looking for a party, you need to look no further. Just be warned: This hot night spot is only open from May through September, so plan your Cape Cod vacation accordingly!

Woodshed, 1993 Main Street, Brewster

Another nearby hot spot on the Cape is Woodshed in Brewster. Today, it stands for good times with good people. Laid back and casual, it’s a favorite with the locals, playing the songs we know all the words to. But as with The Improper Bostonian, this is a seasonal joint only, so we hope to see you hanging out here in the summer of 2019!
