        Elizabeth may be as sweet as American apple pie during the day, but at night, our city knows how to let down its hair.

        Grab your friends and head on over to Broad Street’s BarCode for a fun night out. Order apps off the after-dark menu, featuring bar food and Latin-American specials, and add a bottle of vodka or champagne to your poolside table. Depending on the night, you could be watching a UFC fight on large TV displays and/or dancing the night away to live DJ sounds. Over on Morris Avenue is Chupitos, a Latin-American restaurant by day and party central at night, featuring drink birthday packages, sports watch parties, and DJ dance parties. Also on Morris Avenue is The Garden, a trendy spot serving up a full restaurant menu and an extensive list of cocktails.
