Six Picks: Neat Nights Out

These local spots put their own unique spin on your night out on the town.

1. Jack n’ Diane’s

Looking for a quiet place to enjoy a romantic evening? Well, this ain’t it! Greenville’s only dueling pianos bar will have you singing out loud all night long! You can even enjoy live-band karaoke competitions throughout the year. A menu of appetizers, sandwiches, burgers and salads helps keep the good times (rockin’ and) rolling. 115 N Brown St.; 864.509.6414.

2. The Comedy Zone

Think of this as a great core workout without the sit-ups! The Comedy Zone offers belly laughs aplenty from nationally-acclaimed comedy acts, as well as regional up-and-comers. Check their online calendar to see who’ll be on stage when you’re in town. 221 N Main St.; 864.603.1583.

3.  Local Cue

As if house-smoked barbecue and some of the best wings in town weren’t enough, Local Cue serves up “build-your-own” mac & cheese that’s worth the trip all by itself. From billiards to board games (from Clue to Taboo), it’s a great adults-only escape. 30 Orchard Park Dr. #7; 864.288.6873.

4. Vino & Van Gogh

There’s painting the town, and then there’s painting with wine! Bring your own favorite bottle – and your inner artist – to this entertaining adult art class. Sip and share the company of good friends old and new as you create your own take-home masterpiece. 1818 Augusta St. #112; 864.434.3054.

5. Café and Then Some

Since 1979, this uniquely-Greenville comedy dinner theater has been entertaining guests with absolutely hysterical lampoons of all things Greenville. The food is terrific, but this talented ensemble’s brilliantly-delivered humor will have you begging for seconds. 101 College St.; 864.232.2287. 

6. Frankie's Fun Park

Covering more than 14 acres, choose from racing go-karts, playing miniature golf, riding bumper boats, hitting curveballs in the batting cages, playing laser tag, or challenge yourself to 100+ arcade games. Better yet, try spinning in a circle while rotating 360 degrees upside down at 60 feet in the air on the Discovery ride! 45 Park Woodruff Road; 864.627.9888.
