What kind of nightlife?

You could join giggan playing frisbee and meeting the local cops. ;D

Penuche's Ale House - Bicentennial Square, back in the corner, down in the basement. About 15 beers on tap, micro to near macro. Live music weekends.

The Barley House (http://www.thebarleyhouse.com/page/page/1682447.htm)

Downtown Cheers Grille & Bar (http://www.cheersnh.com)

Margarita's (http://www.margs.com/concord.htm) - Old city jailhouse, police station, courthouse, the original 16 cells are now dining "cells" - but you should boycott them because they wanted the government to stop their customers from smoking.

The Draft (http://www.draftsportsbar.com/) - sports bar on S. Main.

Red Blazer (http://www.theredblazer.com) on Manchester St. - Again, they wanted the govt to stop customers from smoking.

There are more. Take a day walk through all the downtown streets and alleys and you will find some. Then take the same walk at night and you will find others.

Then there are restaurants all along Loudon Rd. Not sure what the nighttime brings there.

As for culture
Capitol Center for the Arts (http://ccanh.com/)
Red River Theatres (http://www.redrivertheatres.org/)
Concord City Auditorium (http://www.concordcityauditorium.org/) known locally as The Audi.

Candlepin bowling at Boutwell's (http://www.boutwellsbowl.com/)

Thanks for the list... I'm just trying to find stuff other than just sit at home and read to do on Friday/Saturday nights....  I'm only mostly a hermit.... I try to get out every now and then.

Concord is full of lawyers, doctors and lobbyists who are busy raising their kids not going out to clubs on Friday/Saturday nights.

Heh. It takes about 10 minutes to check out Concord. Aside from the state politics, it's really a sleepy little hole in the wall town.

I found borders.  I like borders better than B&N.  Might be the fact my gf worked there and brainwashed me? hah.  Nawh their drinks are cheaper.

Oops! I forgot about Fort Eddy Rd. But the only night life I could think about there would be Uno's.

Concord traditionally rolls up the sidewalks at 5 pm and closes up for the night. There used to be a rotating hot spot where the in crowd would hang out in the evenings - they pick one bar for a few months then move on to the next. There probably still is a singles club on Manchester Street (rt 3 South) near the Dunkin Donuts, but why anyone would go to a singles club more than 3 times is beyond me. Dunkin Donuts was always the place to go afterwards I think. If you like movies there is a brand new Red River Theatre that certainly always has good movies. The largest hall is the Capital Center for the Arts. Both are on South Main Street. There is also the Walker Lecture series as well as occasional events at the library and at the Concord City Auditorium. Oh and the Christa McAuliffe Planetarium is supposed to be interesting, but I've never been there. They do have an interesting web address - http://www.starhop.com/ . I'm not happy that they are about to change their name to something else. There is a free paper, the Hippo, that lists events. Oh and Concord does have a rather large first night celebration New Years Eve. Concord probably has more churches than bars though. Way more. I've never been to any of those either. Yet. The first Saturday in December is always the ski and skate sale at the Green Street Community Center, a not to be missed event where you can pick up great bargains or go by the day before to unload stuff you don't want.

Some of the people at Borders are way cool, but I don't want to name any names. Panera's across the street has free wifi, Borders charges.

If you know any of the people there that are cute, single, and female send them my way, haha.  Staple's wifi is accessible from Border's, but is sometimes iffy.

Best answer so far!

Surprised I never spotted this earlier...

Concord is fairly dull as far as nightlife goes, but Uno's is open late (12:30 is late for Concord) and they have really cheap food after 10. Applebees has cheap appetizers late which my friends and I take advantage of often.

Clandestine games of ultimate frisbee in parking garages and lots, until the cops crack down, as mentioned.

Umm...not much else in Concord to do officially. There's some buildings to scale and things to climb, places to run around and explore (I recommend the train tracks) and there's always woods and such around that are not so rural that you need fear getting lost.

We've only done it a couple times, but airsoft gun wars in White's Park after dark are epic. The playground is like a fortress there, its ideal. Just gotta be careful because cops make rounds through white's park and I wouldn't trust them not to shoot us if they see youngens with gun look alikes.

Airsoft guns are great...no where near as expensive, technical, or messy as paintball, but just as much fun. Just need glasses and 30FRNs for an okay pistol and bb's.
