So, you’ve found yourself inside your apartment on a cold night. You’ve watched just about all of the Netflix you can manage and you’re itching to get out of the house. Don’t worry! Just because it’s cold and late doesn’t mean you’re stuck inside for the night. As your Fort Collins apartment complex, we want you to enjoy this beautiful town as much as possible. For that reason, we’re offering up four fun activities for late-night adventures in FoCo!

Play Games At A Local Game Cafe

Fort Collins has several game cafes within just a couple minutes drive of your apartment. Perhaps the most iconic one in Fort Collins is The Haunted Game Cafe where you can play just about any board game you can think of. You are welcome to bring your own food to this cafe if you want to stop by a drive-thru on your way, though it is encouraged that you purchase a drink from the coffee bar while you’re there. Keep in mind that The Haunted Game Cafe closes at 10 pm every night except Sundays when it closes at 7 pm. f you’re looking for a place to play board games that is open a little later, try Dungeons and Drafts where you can order pub grub and themed drinks until midnight. Calling themselves a geek-friendly establishment, you can order drinks based on Harry Potter, Marvel, Game of Thrones, and more.

Take A Drive Into The Mountains

Sometimes you want to get out of the apartment but you don’t know what you want to do. When that happens, consider taking a (careful) nighttime drive into the mountains. Just down the road from your Fort Collins apartments are the beautiful foothills where you can get away from the light pollution of town and go stargazing.

Visit A Late-Night Eatery

Plenty of places in Fort Collins are open well past midnight — you just need to know where to find them. Right down the street from your apartments near CSU is Krazy Karl’s, one of the favorite local pizza joints that is open until 3 am. If you want to head to Old Town, Illegal Petes is open until midnight every night (and 2:30 am Thursday-Saturday) for a late-night burrito. For some deep-fried goodies, Fat Shack stays open past midnight every night and until 4 am on Saturday.

See A Late Movie

Fort Collins has a lot of movie theatres, and you can almost always find some showing late-night flicks when you find yourself bored at night. The Cinemark theater on Timberline Road and the Cinemark Movie Bistro and XD usually offer the latest showings in town, with many movies starting around 10:30 or 11:00 pm.

Get Back Safely To Your Fort Collins Apartments

Of course, while we want you to have fun and enjoy your time, we also want you to get back to your apartment safely! Make sure to have a designated driver if you’re heading to a bar in Old Town and make sure to let a friend know where you will be if you’re driving into the mountains for a late-night adventure.
