Westchester After Dark
A guide for night owls, insomniacs, and night-shift workers
While it may be a stretch to compete for the after-hours crowd when your neighbor is the City That Never Sleeps, our county offers more nocturnal adventures than meet the eye. There’s something for everyone — barflies, creatives, and thrill-seekers alike — from Peekskill to Port Chester. Here, we present a nightly rundown of the best bars, clubs, lounges, and dance halls.
The following spots are open late everynight and cater to ravenous revelers.
City Limits Diner-Grill-Bar-Bakery
200 Central Ave, White Plains
(7:30 a.m-10 p.m.; open until 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays)
Comfort food meets class at this White Plains outpost. All-day breakfast and burgers made with artisanal beef make City Limits a cut above other late-night dining. Expect homeward-bound commuters, regulars, and other professional types.
1 Willett Ave, Port Chester
This riverside taqueria offers up tasty tacos and libations until 1 a.m. Sunday through Thursday and until 2 a.m. Friday and Saturday. Expect a loud crowd no matter when you belly up to the bar.
519 Central Park Ave, Scarsdale
When the yearn for buffalo wings strikes, Manhattan transplants have been known to take Metro-North back to Westchester to visit this unassuming longtime local favorite. The restaurant is open until 3 a.m., and the bar closes at 4 a.m. — plenty of time to indulge in wings and waffle fries until MTA reopens.
Little Drunken Chef
36 Main St, Mount Kisco
This eclectic Mount Kisco hotspot offers a whimsical rotating menu with craft cocktails, lively bar scene, and music until 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. (Open until 10 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays.) A three-minute walk from the Metro-North train stop makes this a no-brainer for homeward-bound commuters.
Lucy’s Bar and Kitchen
446 Bedford Rd, Pleasantville
(4 p.m-12 a.m.; open until 1 a.m. Saturdays; closes at 6 p.m. on Sundays)
Whether hosting a nightly Happy Hour or live music five nights a week, this Pleasantville gem is also an up-county beacon of inspired comfort food — panko-breaded chicken fingers, bouillabaisse, and artisanal pizzas and burgers make this a local late-night favorite.

99 Court St, White Plains
(Open until 10:30 p.m. weeknights; 11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays)
Got a late-night craving for classy Italian food like spiedino or veal scallopini? Mulino’s has you covered — this elegant Italian landmark in the heart of White Plains serves dinner on crisp linens and fine china.
12 High St, Rye
A corner of the bayou turns up the heat on late-night dining at the Rye Roadhouse, where the kitchen serves up gator nuggets, crawfish, macaroni and cheese, and Po’ Boys until 11 p.m. daily. Order from the late-night menu on Fridays and Saturdays until 1 a.m.
The Tavern at Croton Landing
41 North Riverside Ave, Croton-on-Hudson

The Somers Pub
152 US-202, Somers
If you’re up past midnight in Northern Westchester, head on over to Somers Pub. This casual burger-and-wings joint is open until 3 a.m. seven days a week. Expect many nocturnal locals hanging around here. Friday-night karaoke, unfortunately, is a thing of the past.
237 Market St, Yonkers
(Open until midnight Sunday through Thursday; 2:00 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays)
More than 100 locally brewed beers, ales, and lagers await thirsty patrons of the Yard House, but the dining options are equally extensive: The menu rotates regularly, so expect to find everything from crispy Brussels sprouts and deviled eggs to truffle fries, eggrolls, and fish-and-chips. Late-night Happy Hour dining Sundays through Wednesdays from 10 p.m. until closing.
