Fairly recently Carlsbad has sprung a night scene. You have two options. The Silver Spur, 1829 S. Canal St. (tel. 575/887-2851), offers live country-and-western music most nights and free hors d'oeuvres during happy hour, as well as a big-screen TV. The Post Time Saloon, 313 W. Fox St. (tel. 575/628-1977), is a huge place with pool tables, three bars, and a dance floor. The club offers a range of DJ mixes, including country, Tejano, and karaoke.
