I actually like the scene in Milford in the warm months better than Stamford. And I only like a couple places in South Norwalk, I feel like a lot of them have that pretentious feel with the pretentious prices to match. Lot of spoiled twentysomethings.

New Haven has 6 colleges within striking distance, so it's no surprise it has the most vibrant nightlife in the state.

Even Black Rock has a nice feel, likely benefiting from the college crowd there.
good to know, i may have to go up to milford and the likes next time

Downtown is hopping in the summer. Stonebridge is a little crazy with some Jersey Shore lookin' people, but otherwise there are some cool bars. If you like outdoor bars, you'll like it. Citrus, Cabo, Archie Moore's, SBC and Stonebridge all have outdoor space, and except for Cabo, they all have bars outside. Seven Seas is one of my favorites just because it's such a cool little New England dive.

You can thank the "Valley" crowd for that.

Terminal 110 - This one's a bit of an oddity. It's a club through and through and pretty big. But it's the only NH bar in this list you can't walk to. It's tucked away in a very industrial area near IKEA off 95. Appears to be popular with suburbanites. The one time I was there, it was fairly crowded and seemed like a nice space.
They actually just turned the upstairs club into a country bar, in the last week or two. So that's... something.

The downstairs piano bar must be the place to go for birthday parties and bachelorette parties. It is what it is and can be fun with a good drinking crowd, but the second time, it's exactly the same, and there's usually no third time.

I believe that the "Valley" doesn't have as many italians as Milford and area coastal towns like East Haven, for example.

Oh BTW, Oxford is very much part of that "Valley".

The non-Italians are all over that look now. A lot of Derby/Ansonia-ites at Stonebridge, and also West Haven and Stratford. The fact that it's so mainstream now means it only has a couple of years left.

That was going to be my next comment.

Every time I go to Stonebridge, it seems like a Derby High School reunion. Don't get me wrong, it's a great time there in the summer, but it's definitely populated by a lot of Valley-ites.
