Nightlife in Galena
We get a number of inquiries regarding what there is to be done in Galena after dinner. Perhaps somewhat surprisingly (or perhaps not), there’s quite a bit to do in Galena after dark. The nightlife here is varied and interesting, and our Inn is situated close enough to downtown to enjoy it all by foot. When you’re looking for a place for dinner, there are a lot of options just one short block away from our Inn. Favorites include Fritz and Frites, Fried Green Tomatoes, The Log Cabin, 111 Main, and Vinny Vanucchi’s.
After dinner be sure to check out live music on the weekends at The Galena Brewing Company, The Grape Escape, The Cornerstone, and Frank O’Dowd’s Irish Pub & Grill. If you’re looking for a more quiet and romantic place to enjoy an after dinner drink, check out Embe Bar and Lounge, Jamie’s Wine Studio, or the Green Street tavern. Afterwards, take a leisurely stroll from Main Street over the pedestrian bridge, and see Galena at night from Grant Park. The walk and park is well-lit, and features commanding views of the historic town, and even of Jail Hill Inn, all lit up.
For something a little more entertaining, Galena is home to a wonderful Magic Show. Two blocks from Jail Hill Inn is P.T. Murphy’s Magic Show, and is an extremely popular activity with our guests. Galena is also home to a variety of ghost tours, both on foot and by car. Amelia’s Ghost Tour is available year-round, and during the summer months, you can enjoy The Haunted Galena Tour Company’s ghost walk. There’s also a Haunted Pub Crawl that is a raucous good time.
You don’t have to go out to enjoy the nightlife in Galena. There are plenty of reasons to stay Inn! There’s no need to leave your luxurious suite, when you can order food in, delivered right to your door! Cannovas Pizza and Procentos Pizzeria are two delicious options.
