How To Stay Out All Night(-ish)

You can stay out all night in Westchester, too, if you know where to look.

If New York City is the City That Never Sleeps, Westchester is often considered the opposite—the County That Turns In Early. That reputation is a misconception, though, if you know where to look for cultural events that’ll keep you out all night. (Well, at least past 11 pm—let’s not go crazy.) 

Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre

After the concert, there’s the after-concert—at least at Garcia’s, The Capitol Theatre’s on-site bar. (Yes, as in Jerry Garcia.) Once the headliner is done with the final encore, ticketholders are guaranteed entry to Garcia’s, often for more live music. The roster is ever-evolving, but look for Matt Turk & Friends to follow Hot Tuna on June 19, or ShwizZ to follow Primus on June 24. • Garcia’s at The Capitol Theatre Port Chester (914) 305-1628;

Ultimate Parties at the Alamo Drafthouse

Remember music videos? Even if you do (and we’re a dying breed), chances are you’ve never seen them projected up on a big screen. The Ultimate Parties at the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema lets you sing-, dance-, and shout-along to your favorite videos. The parties are usually themed according to decade, so you don’t have to mix your Nirvana in with your Blondie, and the two-hour events start at 10 pm.  Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, Yonkers (914) 226-3082

12 Grapes

You may think “quiet” and “serene” when you hear the words “wine bar,” but 12 Grapes is anything but—especially on the weekends. On Friday and Saturday nights, they’ve got live music playing from around 9:30 or 10 pm until past midnight. Look for Guns ‘n’ Hoses—America’s premier all-girl Guns ‘n’ Roses cover band—on June 14. • 12 Grapes Peekskill (914) 737-6624;
