Loved by over 40s

Flying Saucer

The Flying Saucer is another popular Little Rock Bar where the party never ends. Their list of beers is endless and their food menu will meet all of your expectations. Look out for the Blanche De Bruxelles beer – a very light white Belgian ale with a hint of lemon zest, vanilla, and coriander.

White Water Tavern

The White Water Tavern is located in an ancient Victorian house in the middle of town. It is surrounded by the freeway and a dirt parking lot, within site of the capitol building. White Water Tavern hosts concerts, garden fundraisers, and other themed event nights.

Discovery Night Club

Discovery Club is a private club and a favorite place for parties on Saturday nights. There are three different rooms with three different styles of music, so everyone is guaranteed a good time. If you like to have things planned before visiting, take advantage of Discovery’s “text blast army,” and they will do an excellent job of keeping you in the loop, plus you may win free entrance to the place and other goodies.

Big Whiskey’s American Bar & Grill

At Big Whiskey’s American Bar & Grill in Little Rock, “great meals aren’t made, they’re built.” They offer typical American fare and the place is great for a quick stop or if you are looking for somewhere to just hang out. It’s kid-friendly, too.

Bar Louie

Bar Louie offers you an excellent martini menu and specialty drinks, as well as a huge selection of beers. The bar staff is friendly, and the wait staff is definitely there to serve you. You can get some good wines for relatively low prices during their happy hour. The place is simply outstanding, and their food is pretty awesome too.

By the Glass

The staff and owners at By The Glass will do just about anything to make you feel at home. The interior of the place itself boasts a homey feeling, the drinks are excellent and the food is delicious. They have a plentiful selection of appetizers that will perfectly fit with your choice of drinks. Live music and wine maker meet-and-greets are just some of their entertaining events you could participate in. This cozy place will definitely provide a relaxing ambiance after a long day.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
