Fun Bars in Huntsville
Planning a fun night out in Huntsville? These top bars are the perfect place to grab a drink with friends.
Downtown Huntsville’s 1920’s-inspired speakeasy is one of the hottest spots in town. It’s not easy to snag a reservation at Catacomb 435; with very limited seating, this underground spot books up days in advance.
But once you snag the password and open the hidden door, you’re treated to an intimate space with delicious, hand-crafted cocktails that are made exclusively to your tastes. You pick your flavor profile, and the bartender will make a personalized drink just for you.
The Speakeasy at Straight to Ale
If you’re looking for a less intimate speakeasy, there’s always The Speakeasy at Straight to Ale in Campus 805. The entrance is located behind a set of sliding lockers (they’re set in a wooden frame and kind of heavy to move).
Inside is a windowless room (it’s the old middle school band room) with a small stage, tables, booths, and a bar. At the bar, they serve Straight to Ale beer and mixed drinks made with their own Shelta Cavern Spirits.
If you’re more into wines, craft ciders, and karaoke then head into Lipz Lounge at Straight to Ale, the brewery’s newest concept that replaced their 3rd Circle Cellars bar.
This new karaoke concept is hosted by Remy Neal. You can sing your favorite tunes while sipping on exclusive craft cocktails and craft beers.
Stella’s Elixir Lounge
Stella’s Elixir Lounge has a swanky indoor bar, a covered patio, and open air, rooftop seating around cozy fire pits. This rooftop bar gives luxury vibes that you can’t get anywhere else in Huntsville.
Grab a semi-private cabana, a spot on a cozy couch, or a seat at the sleek bar and enjoy classic cocktails made with featured elixirs.
Baker & Able
Named for Huntsville’s famous monkey astronauts, Baker & Able sits on the top floor of the 106 Jefferson hotel. This swanky rooftop bar overlooks Downtown Huntsville with views of the rolling mountains and church steeples.
This bar leans in to Huntsville’s scientific roots with high-class craft cocktails made using beakers and served by bartenders wearing white lab coats.
Pints & Pixels
If you love beer and arcade games, then Pints & Pixels is the place for you. With 40 taps of craft beer and wine, an old-fashioned soda fountain, and more than 40 vintage arcade games, pinball machines, and Skee Ball, Pints & Pixels is a great night out for the grown-up nerd.
You’ll find this fun bar at Campus 805. Expect plenty of space-themed pinball machines and your arcade favorites like Pac-Man and Frogger. It only costs $10 per person for all-day access to play games.
Flight Plan Wine and Tapas
Flight Plan Wine and Tapas is the perfect girls’ night out. Grab a flight of wine and share some tapas at this beautiful spot in Jones Valley.
Each wine flight consists of 4 sample glasses of different wine unified by a common theme to give you the perfect tasting. Their tapas menu includes different charcuterie boards, hot and cold small bites, Naan bread pizzas, and other sharable dishes.
Phat Sammy’s is a tiki-themed bar and restaurant in Downtown Huntsville. With their beach décor and tropical cocktails, you’ll forget you’re in North Alabama!
All of their drinks are so creative! They’re served in fun glasses, have punny names, and are a mix of classic cocktails, original creations, and inspired recipes. You can even get a communal cocktail to share between two or more people. They also have daily drink specials and happy hours so you can make the most of their drink selection.
