Nightlife in Darwen


Darwen has its own quirky nightlife scene with a mixture of traditional pubs, chain bars, and popular independant bars.

A stone’s throw away from the centre is The Belgrave, Darwen’s premier live music cafe bar.  There’s also plenty of other bars in and around Darwen suiting a variety of musical tastes such as the Bridgewater, Millstone, the Crown and Marigolds, all of which have regular music performances. 

Evening Dining

If you fancy a bite to eat whilst out in Darwen, why not try Mangiamo’s, one of the town’s best Italian restaurants or if a curry is more your thing you can take your pick from three amazing Indian restaurants on the main road as well as Chinese, La Salsa Tapas  restaurant and a wide range of pubs who serve food in and around the town.

 Regular Events:

Darwen is home to two popular live music events that keep going from strength to strength. Darwen Live in May & the Jazz & Blues Festival in August. Details can be found in our Whats On section as soon as the information is availble.

There is also a regular programme of music, drama & comedy for all the family to enjoy at Darwen Library Theatre.
