Night Life

Whether you’re looking for a family fun night, a girls’ or guys’ night out or a romantic date night with live music; Montgomery County, Maryland has got you covered. Here are a few ideas to consider the next time you visit the county.

AMP by Strathmore

AMP is great music and food at Pike & Rose, an urban-minded, Metro-accessible neighborhood on Rockville Pike. Powered by Strathmore, with innovative drinks and cuisine by Ridgewells Catering, AMP puts a premium on authentic live music experiences, bringing new energy beyond the Beltway.

Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club

Listed on the National Historic Register, this 1938 concert hall hosts performances of live music that, in addition to blues and jazz, include orchestral, rock and even burlesque. The chic setting and high-end menu make this a perfect spot for a leisurely, romantic date night.

FM Karaoke

Round up a big group of friends and head to FM Karaoke, where you can sing the latest songs in languages ranging from English to Indonesian. Make a reservation because this place is popular with visitors and locals alike. Best of all, it’s not an “open” karaoke bar—you get your own private karaoke room, so the only people you’ll embarrass yourself in front of are your friends.

Bowlmor Lanes

Forget everything you think you know about bowling alleys: these lanes take bowling to a new level, with their swanky décor and extensive food and drink menu. Savor the adult fare (you can order from the lane-side servers so you don’t have to miss your turn), but also the feeling of being a kid again when you try to beat your buddies at arcade games or bowl on glow-in-the-dark lanes.

The Fillmore Silver Spring

The Fillmore Silver Spring brings a dynamic, first-class music, entertainment, and community use venue to downtown Silver Spring, MD in partnership with Montgomery County. For more than 40 years, the legendary Fillmore name has stood as the link between some of the most influential artists in music and their fans. With a capacity of 2,000, the newest Fillmore offers an array of diverse live music programming.

AFI Silver Theatre and Cultural Center

The exceptional technical facilities of the AFI Silver include film formats from 16 to 70mm, high-definition digital cinema video projection, broadcast quality video recording and distance learning capabilities via satellite, fiber and the Internet. Whether it’s silent film at the proper frame rate with live musical accompaniment, 70mm wide screen spectaculars or digital cinema, the AFI Silver offers state-of-the-art technology in each of its three theatres.
