Being a late-night person is awesome. I often fall into this cycle of spending the entire day sleeping and being wide awake all night. This works out okay for me though, because it's usually at night when I'm in the mood to go out and stuff.
The only problem is that a lot of the establishments open at past midnight are either bars or restaurants, and sometimes I'm in the mood for something more than just food and drinks.
If you're like me and often find yourself wanting to do something interesting at night, these 7 awesome places may appeal to you:
