The nightlife in Athens is wonderful. The bars have loud music, drink specials, and lots of people. It's like spring break every weekend, but with more clothes. There is always something going on downtown. There are great concerts and shows, as well. Students flock downtown almost every night of the week, particularly on Thursday through Saturday nights. There are specials every night of the week at different places, and these are usually written on chalkboards outside each bar. You will run into all kinds of people at bars and clubs, and it's always easier to meet people with a little alcohol running through your system, so chances are, you will probably make friends every time you go.
Last call is around 2 a.m., but people linger for another hour or so outside before they stumble home. Restaurants such as the Grill and Little Italy have great late-night drunk food. The nightlife is so good that more and more apartments are being built in proximity to the downtown area, so students can walk and not worry about having a driver or getting a taxi. If you do need a taxi, you can probably just flag one down on the street. It usually costs around $3 to $5 to get home. Parking can be a little tricky, but usually there are spaces in the decks available. There are bike cops out and about looking for minors in possession, so be careful not to put yourself in a bad position.
