We're getting married in December and staying at the Farmington Inn. Lots of guests are staying there, too, so I'd love to be able to plan something for anyone who wants to keep partying after the reception, which ends at 11. Is there a place with good food and drinks that'll please a post-wedding crowd AND be close enough so that getting back to the hotel isn't a huge problem? I've considered asking Piccolo Arancio or Cugino's to stay open a few extra hours, but since I'm not from the area, I'm not sure either one is even worth it. Suggestions?

    maybe wooden Tap http://www.woodntap.com/farmington.htm
    or http://www.murphyandscarlettis.com/
    Piccolo Arancio is a nice restaurant but not much of a party place. Cugino's is also more of a dinner place. It and the places Ii've suggested would require designated drivers or hiring a shuttle.

      Wood & Tap is a good, close-by choice. The downstairs tavern at Apricots is a cozy fun spot, but not really a party spot.

      In West Hartford town there's plenty of choices. The new Irish pub McLaddens (I think that's the name) and Sidecar in town center. Plan B for beers and burgers. The Corner Pug.

        Shish lounge on Farmington Ave (904 I think) is open until 1am during the week, 2am on weekends.
        Haven't been but I hear they get a pretty nice crowd and the location is great.

          agree on wood and tap....plus it's my favorite burger anywhere, IMO better than Plan B, Max's, 5 guys, Joey Garlic's
