Mackinac island

We have plans to spend a weekend on the island in July, would like to know if there is much of a nightlife. Any recommendations?

Lots of places to drink. Horns and The Gate House always has bands. The Mustang has a DJ.

The Pink Pony Bar & Grill in the Chippewa Hotel, has house musician, Myk Rise, performing on the weekends. He is quite enjoyable. He and others also perform in the water front patio bar during the day.

This isn't exactly what you were asking, but if you are looking for a nice place for dinner, try the Woods. It is a Grand Hotel restaurant, but you have to take a carriage to get there. A bit pricey, but everything on the island is expensive. Be aware that what ever you do, the streets tend to roll up pretty early.

A lot depends on your age and what you consider nightlife. The island is full of summer employs who are college students ... they sometimes party at bars and also in their own residences (think college without having to go to class)

If you google "Mackinac Island live music", you will get several websites that list what is going on.

Some of the best partying is during the sailboat races (when the boats finish and dock) ... the Chicago race starts on the 13th and ends on the 15th or 16th of July The Port Huron race starts on the 20th of July and ends on the 22nd-ish of July.
