Unwind after a long day at the beach with a little entertainment, an ice cold drink, or even a bit of uniquely delicious fare with a trip to one of Buxton’s best kept local secrets, the Lighthouse Sports Bar. Situated in a small building that’s tucked away along NC Highway 12, this popular local hang-out has a world of great drinks, great people, and plenty of ways to have fun, which makes it a popular post-beach destination for visitors and locals alike.

Lighthouse Sports Bar has a nice array of beers, wines, and cocktails, which includes a large array of domestic and microbrew selections from North Carolina and beyond on tap. The bar is also famous for its on-site games, which includes dart boards, pool tables, and other ways for bar patrons to have fun while sipping on a cold drink or two. Lighthouse Sports Bar also recently added a unique food menu with everything from loaded fries to flat tops, and the bar regularly hosts live music or special events, like holiday parties, poker nights, and other activities that will get everyone in the crew to stay out late. With a relaxed atmosphere and plenty of good times waiting, Lighthouse Sports Bar is a great destination for island night owls.
