Live Music & Nightlife

Discover the region's diverse nightlife and local live music scene from the WOW Hall to the Matthew Knight Arena, from coffee shops to large outdoor amphitheaters. Listen to a pop group in downtown Eugene, groove to a hometown band at a rural brewery, or dance while the DJ spins at a warehouse venue. Whether you are looking for acoustic in an intimate venue or some good old-fashioned rock 'n roll, you'll find a thriving entertainment destination.

What's Happening

Your best bet for active nightlife and bars and eateries with later hours includes downtown Eugene, the Whiteaker Neighborhood, and the University District. Other hubs for evening entertainment include Main Street in Springfield and Historic Old Town Florence but be prepared that most establishments wrap up around 10 p.m.
