While you may not be able to saddle up to what most consider the standard definition of a bar, you can cozy up to Bailey’s Chocolate Bar for some sinful treats. Open until 1 a.m. 6 days a week and until midnight on Sundays, the late night menu at Bailey’s is the perfect way to end any evening. Head to Bailey’s after a long night of dancing and grab decadent, plated desserts like a chocolate brownie smothered in fudge and topped with ice cream to share with friends before heading home for the night.
