The night is a very special time, when all the world goes to sleep, and one can feel the quiet lull that settles over the world like a blanket.

Here in Annapolis, we too have a wide variety of things to do and choose from for those night owls looking for some fun. So, join us as we explore our choice for the top five best hangouts spots to experience Annapolis nightlife!
