Nightlife in Winston-Salem

Select Local Merchants

A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.

While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.

At Big Shotz Tavern, chefs celebrate American comfort food with a vast menu of pizzas, burgers, and barbecue. They season and marinate chicken wings in homemade rubs, and whip up sauces and dips from scratch.

A bustling, lively atmosphere prevails in the spacious dining room. Big-screen TVs hover above the wraparound bar, and, in the warmer months, musicians serenade adorable diners with spinach in their teeth on the outdoor brick patio. The restaurant also hosts a weekly trivia night.

Boasting one of the largest venues in the Triad, and blessed by the muses since 1934, Twin City Stage gives the Winston-Salem community a place to both experience live theater and perform in it. Mitch Albom’s comedy, Duck Hunter Shoots Angel, follows a couple of cockamamie duck hunters who believe they’ve shot an angel and are relentlessly pursued by a cynical tabloid journalist and his reluctant photographer—but everything changes when they stumble upon a pair of wings and a tiara. Like most Thanksgiving dinners, the production wittily intertwines a love story, garish media, cultural stereotypes, and a character that is half alligator and half man.

The serene yogarie offers more than 15 different yoga classes, accommodating beginners, rusty practitioners returning after exhaustive time-travel adventures, and master yogis in town on layovers. You can mix and match from among the studio’s many options to find the perfect posture for you, or follow one class through six sessions. Beginners may opt for the Newbie Yogi You-Be course to develop their strength and flexibility before moving on to one of the more demanding courses, such as the noontime WiserEnergizer, which revives work-slumped students, or the fast-paced Kundalini Rising course, which revitalizes the body’s organs for better health and super powers.

For 23 years, the manager of Break Time Billiards & Sports Bar has been surrounded by the murmurs of friendly chatter and clacking of pool balls that define a billiard room. But unlike the style of a traditional billiard room, his serves hearty Italian-American fare from local landmark Carmine's Restaurant for groups to enjoy while they play. It would seem there are surprises around every corner, because far from simply providing billiards, the fully equipped, smoke-free establishment also boasts dart lanes, electronic games, and a constant stream of sports broadcast on the myriad big-screen televisions.

For all its extras, however, Break Time Billiards & Sports Bar still has the feeling of a classic, upscale billiard room. Designed by avid players and sports enthusiasts, the layout leaves plenty of room between its Diamond professional tables to prevent annoying collisions.
