Anchorage does not shut down when it gets dark. Bars here—and throughout Alaska—open early (in the morning) and close as late as 3 am on weekends. There's a ban on smoking in bars and bingo parlors, as well as in restaurants. The listings in the Anchorage Daily News entertainment section, published on Friday, and in the free weekly Anchorage Press ( range from concerts and theatre performances to movies and a roundup of nightspots featuring live music.
