The nighttime is a glorious thing, when the creatures of the day rest their weary heads, and it seems like the world itself has closed its eyes and gone to bed. Usually at this point is when the beings of the night come out to play. This is also when the lights go on, the taps start flowing, conversations begin, and the music starts to ring out. For those of you who crave these late-night wonders, or perhaps those who are just good old fashioned night owls, you will want to make sure you check out some of the Pigeon Forge nightlife in the Smoky Mountains and surrounding area. So, sit back, get comfortable, and join us on our journey through the top five late-night hangout spots!
Bec’s Grill and Bar
We start our journey off with a good old-fashioned bar and grill, the likes of which have been a favorite of the night out for many a year now. Those who enjoy good food and good drinks need not look farther then Bec’s Grill and Bar! This eatery offers both lunch and dinner for you to enjoy while you have a good drink and relax. You’ll find a rather limited menu; however, this allows them to truly focus all their energy into just a small number of foods rather than stretching it thin over a large menu. You’ll find four main entrees to devour as you chat and make new friends. You’ll find a juicy cheeseburger, a perfectly prepared Reuben, hot dripping prime rib sandwiches, and the classic hot wings. When your ready to sit down and eat, you’ll have your choice between the friendly welcoming inside where you are sure to strike up conversation and make a new friend or two or relax in their outside dining area where you can enjoy the smell of pine and view of the mountains as you relax and enjoy your feast. However, don’t eat to much as it’s whispered, they have a rather scrumptious grilled honeybun with ice-cream. So, if you are looking for a place to hang out, make some friends, and have an all-around wonderful evening then make sure you check out Bec’s Grill and Bar.
Ripley’s Haunted Adventure
When many of us think of late-night hangouts, we may imagine bars or nightclubs, of which very few are a good fit for the entire family to enjoy.

If you’re looking for an evening activity for the entire family, make sure you check out Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, which is one of the few haunted houses open 365 days a year. Lying in a renovated mansion, this 10,000-square-foot haunted house is sure to have you shrieking, gasping, and your heart pumping as monsters and zombies lurk in the corners of this haunted home. This makes it perfect for a late-night thrill that will have even the bravest cowering by the end (keep in mind though that you must be at least 6 to partake in this adventure).
After braving the haunted house, make sure you stay though for their famous Odditorium featuring many interactive exhibits focusing on the odd and strange. The fun doesn’t stop there, as Ripley’s offers many other activities for you and your group to enjoy this evening, from 5D movies to a confusing, yet thrilling mirror maze to mini golf to a large educational aquarium for you to explore the fishy beings that haunt the deepest parts of the ocean. All this will end with a bit of nostalgia for the adults in their Super Fun Zone where you will step back in time to the 80s, complete with laser tag and an old school arcade shooting gallery.
