If you have moved to Maine, or you are visiting Maine, from a much more populace state, you've probably noticed that our nightlife is a lot different.  As a mostly rural state (come on, our idea of a "city" is 60,000 people!), we don't have a lot of city-like nightclubs.

However, Mainers still love to party.  So, even though we lack nightclubs, we have a lot of party bars!

Nearly every city or town, no matter the size, has at least one bar that is known as the place where everyone goes to party.  We're talking about the places where you go to meet up with friends, where you go to meet new friends, and where the bands and DJs electrify the crowd.

We've put together our list of the top party bars in the Augusta / Waterville area.  Take a look and let us know what other bars need to be on our list.
