Best Late-Night Hangout That Doesn't Involve Alcohol

Mr. Green Bubble

Not in the mood for alcohol? Skip the bar and head to Mr. Green Bubble, which is open until midnight on Friday and Saturday and 11 p.m. on weeknights. The bubble teas, frozen yogurt, and free wi-fi draw a lot of students by day, but at night, the brightly lit, green-and-white store gets packed with cute couples and board game aficionados (who hang in the back to play intellectual strategy and word games). The vibe is as fun as any bar — boisterous, too crowded to sit down, and casually hip — and, even better, you can scope out potential love interests and actually see what they look like. Just try not to overindulge in the Taiwanese-style fried snacks and creamy milk teas.
