Late Night Eats: Get you some

IT’S 10 p.m. Do you know where your dinner is?

College often means some pretty late nights. Whether that’s due to studying or to partying is up to you. But what do you do when it’s past closing time for most restaurants and you haven’t gotten to eat yet?

Don’t heat up that ramen just yet, friend. There are plenty of places all over town that stay open late enough to feed you into the wee hours:

Walk up to the FULL window at the back of Barrelhouse and satisfy your cravings without ever leaving the dance floor.

Fancy Parker’s, 222 Drayton St. - 24 hours

Okay, we know it’s actually called Parker’s Market, but nobody will know what you’re talking about if you say that in reference to the Parker’s on Drayton Street. We could write a love letter to Fancy Parker’s hot line alone, but suffice it to say that they truly earned their nickname.

Sit high above the City Market crowd on the Grove’s rooftop and enjoy a Grove Salad or a Veggie Burger late into the night.

Savannah Taphouse, 125 E. Broughton St. - until 2am

The menu at Savannah Taphouse is eclectic, to say the least. Where else could you find mussels, sweet tea fried chicken and a mac and cheese burger occupying the same real estate?

Sorry Charlie’s, 116 W. Congress St. - until 1am

Oysters are an aphrodisiac, and if you’re looking for some late night lovin’, hit up Sorry Charlies to get ‘em five different ways.

Spudnik, 416 W. Broughton St.- open until 3am, Sunday 8pm, Monday and Tuesday 10pm 

Spudnik is a Savannah treasure. Start with a baked potato and add different fixins, like a fried egg or beef chili or even BBQ pork. File under “good when sober, amazing when drunk.”

Count on the Warehouse for cold beer, live music and great food down on the river.
