Nightlife - Carlsbad, California

1. Coyote Bar & Grill

City: Carlsbad, CA
Category: Nightlife
Telephone: (760) 729-4695
Address: 300 Carlsbad Village Drive

Description: The age and musical tastes of Coyote’s clientele change frequently. What seems to be constant, however, is the number of people spilling out the door, off the patio, and into the parking lot. When the weather is fine—and that’s more often than not—young and middle-aged professionals can be found on the patio, some sipping one of the bar’s hundred-odd brands of tequila. The popular hangout has loud music, lots of laughter, and live entertainment Wednesday through Sunday from 6:00 to 10:30 p.m. after which a DJ spins his (or her) magic. On weekdays partake of happy hour appetizers from 3:00 to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday is currently karoake night.

2. La Costa Coffee Roasting

City: Carlsbad, CA
Category: Nightlife
Telephone: (760) 438-8160
Address: 6965 El Camino Real

Description: This is a family-style hangout where people come to mingle, have coffee, and check their e-mail via free wireless connection after taking in a movie at the multiplex theater or visiting the branch of the Carlsbad City library right in the same shopping center. There’s live entertainment—perhaps jazz or a guitarist, cellist, or bluegrass banjo player—on Friday and Saturday evenings starting at 7:00 p.m. If you’re looking for a coffee-related gift to take back home, there are walls of designer, silly, and fun coffee mugs.
