Evening Endeavors at the Country's Best Nighttime Sporting Spots

By

We love breaking a good, clean sweat, but what happens when you’re stuck at the office all day? Going to the gym after work is all well and good, but sometimes you want to do something a little bit more fun. We’ve got your back with this roundup of the hottest spots around the country where you can burn that competitive fire into the night in unique ways.

It’s inspired by Armani Code Sport’s Dive into the Night Foursquare competition, which rewards the person with the best late-night itinerary each day with a free bottle of Code Sport. Plus, the grand-prize winner will score a trip for two to NYC, including airfare, luxury hotel accommodations, and a $2,000 shopping spree at the Armani store. So be sure to check in and take part in the challenge while you’re gearing up, and let the games begin!

An Inside Look at America's Best Speakeasies

By

We all have our favorite bars: the local go-to spots with good drinks, good music, and good people. But sometimes we need something a little bit more… special. That’s when we turn to our neighborhood speakeasies, the spots you most likely won’t stumble into on your own — mostly because you’d never find them. Hidden behind unmarked doors, secret entrances, or guarded stairwells, these Prohibition-era inspired throwbacks add a hint of mystery and intrigue to a night out, combining a sense of exclusivity with serious mixology.

Inspired by Armani Code Sport’s Dive into the Night Foursquare competition, we offer a roundup of some of the best of these hideaways around the country. Check out the ones you don’t know, tell us your own favorites in the comments, and wherever you go, be sure to check in and take part in the Foursquare challenge — you could win a bottle of Armani Code Sport daily, or even the grand-prize trip to NYC for an Armani shopping spree.
