    The Gate House “After Dark”

See & Be Scene

When the lights go down at night, The Gate House transforms into Mackinac Island’s only dancing nightclub venue. It features a full bar, small bites, and local live entertainment, music, and events, plus guest and house DJs nightly.

If different is what you’re looking for, this is the best high-energy, late-night spot for Mackinac Island.
