Bars and nightlife in Fairbanks

Top bars

“Fairbanks' premier hippy bar. If your itching to meet some eclectic locals who do Alaska living right, hit this spot up for sure. Live music on the weekends is usually twangy, but a blast all the same.”

“They just opened up a microbrewery upstairs which is great, and downstairs is the classic dive-bar which has great Fairbanks ambience. Its downtown near the Morris Thompson center and good for a beer after sightseeing downtown”
