As the brilliant colors of Yuma’s sunsets fade to dark, the bars, pubs and clubs light up with nightlife options. Downtown Yuma is home to lots of bars, pubs and clubs. The bars offer pool, darts, live music, karaoke, and even Trivia Nights. For dancing, clubs, pop-up events, and bars get your groove moving. There are also several locations offering short lessons before country music or full lessons for cha-cha, bachata, merengue, salsa, samba or mambo.

If a more relaxed evening is what you’re after, drinks or dining on the patio are lovely. Many restaurants and bars offer outdoor patios. The warm evening air, some music, and the stars above make a nice setting to enjoy your mango jalapeno or fresh watermelon margarita, Michelada, craft beer, or wine.

Not all nightlife happens downtown. Check out other hot spots around Yuma and the Foothills, too, including shows at some of the RV resorts, which are open to the public. 

Movies are always a fun option at both of Yuma’s big screen locations. Keep an eye out, too, for showings at pop-up drive-ins which have been showing family favorites from the 80s and 90s. The Z Fun Factory makes for a great family night of games, arcade fun, and good food. Dosis VR takes the fun virtual and has more than 100 video games on hand for gamers, and don’t forget Red Moon Ale House for classic video games and the opportunity to order a craft beer as well.

If you’re feeling lucky, try your hand at three Yuma-area casinos. Featuring big-name entertainment, bars, and dining options, the casinos entertain gamblers and non-gambler alike.
