Nightlife & Casinos

Creative craft cocktails have become a trendy staple at bars and clubs across the country and in the Whiskey City, that holds true. Start your night off at Martini’s on Water Street in downtown Peoria which often has live music on Saturday nights and gives an excellent view of the Illinois Riverfront. Feeling nostalgic? You have to hit up the 8 Bit Arcade Bar where you can play all your favorite arcade games. 

Unum Fine Wine and Whiskey Lounge calls the Village of Morton home where you can try exquisite prohibition-inspired drinks and tasty treats. Looking to satisfy hunger after a fun night out? Head over to Hoops Pub and Pizza where they serve pies, pizza by the slice and beer until 5:30 a.m.

Enjoy live casino action at the Par-A-Dice Hotel Casino and choose from over 900 slot machines, 30 table games and live poker. Par-A-Dice also offers fine dining at Boyd’s Steakhouse or more casual dining at Options Buffet, Nelson’s Deli, and Bourbon’s. Try the all-new Tin Lizard Bar & Grill, the go-to spot for good drinks, great food and the best local and regional bands.
